Hi, My V570 works fine on widescreen lens (the default on startup) but when I zoom up to switch to the other lens it goes to a dark blank screen and will take a similarly dark blank picture. I can hear the zoom activating as I click it so I think that is ok. I opened the camera covers to have a look but do not know how to proceed from there.
Re: V570 Dual Lens, will not switch to ordinary lens.

Error E45 is a lens stuck error and appears if there is an obstruction in the lens gears. The obstruction is usually just dust or something of the like and can be resolved by gently tapping on the camera lens with your hand. Here is a thread where I suggested the same and it seems to have worked for a lot of people http://www.fixya.com/support/t240817-camera_error_e45 Worth a try before you send it in to Kodak for repair. Don't hit it too hard as the lens may break.
E45 error message sometimes means that the lens is misaligned, This error is also may be due to failure of the control system. To solve this: You can remove
battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens
hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being
struck. Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand
particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of
taking consensus with the service center. You must keep in mind that to open the camera without good experience is not recommended and might tamper the delicate unit so best option is to Contact Kodak to see if your camera is still under warranty, otherwise contact any Kodak Cameras service provider, your problem will be solved.
I hope this solution helps you Don't hesitate to let me know if you want any further assistance. Thank you for using FixYa!
Oh I'd love to be able to see this one. OH well.
What batteries are you using? If they are ordinary alkaline, then you should get a set of NiMH rechargable batteries. (As strong as you can find) If the problem continues, taale the camera into Nikon and send your friend the bill.
If the lens assy is not responding to zoom buttons then the camera is in confusion mode due to a sensor being blocked or defective. Normally it would go thru a startup cycle to initialise position of various parts in the lens assy and give back control to you but in your case it is not getting that signal and in your case I would bet on the end sensor.
