Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

I have kodak ls443 get error message camera error e45 and it says see users guide. i have looked in users guide but cannot find andy info re error e45


Hello

Firstly, at the link below you can download a updated softcopy of the manual for free.

http://www.retrevo.com/s/Kodak-LS443-Digital-Cameras-review-manual/id/200dj378/t/1-2/

As for the error code you are getting, "error 45" is a lens related problem of LS443.

If the lens is not stuck, you may try to download the firmware from the Kodak site and update the one in your camera.

As the lens is already stuck, there is no choice except to send the camera back to Kodak for servicing.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards
Andrea

Kodak Easy Share LS443


hi there

the error is the zoom lens is stuck
there is a ring at the base of the camere which gets dirt in it and makes the zoom stick
can be repaired by most camera shops as it only needs about 5 screws removing to clean the ring
do not send it back to kodak because they will rip you off.

hope this helps

I have heard of people who have just whacked theirs against their hand a few times and it starts working again, nothing to lose really, if it is really broken and this doesnt work, repairs are more than a new camera
