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

Turn your camera on and smack the camera against your hand. The E45 error means your lens is stuck. The lens on my V603 was stuck open, when I smacked it against my hand it closed and now works fine. Give that a shot.

I have fixed the problem! For any out there with a the same problem, all you have to do is smack the extended lense against your palm firmly then turn the camera back on. It just worked for me and no more error, camera is now working fine. Good luck!!

SOURCE: kodak easyshare v570 e45 error...what is the solution ???

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.

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.

Andrea

Como corregir un errror E45 en una kodak V570


The bad news is that this error means the lens alignment of your camera is messed up and it will take repair service to fix it. The cost of this might be equivalent to replacing the camera.

Camera locked - camera error #E45


Hi

www.Kodak.com says:
"E45" appears on your camera's display when your camera requires service or repair.

I think it is a lens error. They have a page on www.kodak.com called Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair. This is for USA only.
See what they suggest.

I may be cheaper just to get a new camera.

Hope this helps.

Kodak DX6490 error E45


this is actually a known problem or defect with this camera. Sometimes, if you point this out to kodak, they will fix it. I would go to the kodak site and write to them about it, or if there is a number, call that number. This didn't happen to me, but I came across this information when researching a different problem with the same model camera. I wish I could point you to the exact info, but it was a while back. The forum that I was on...some people were able to get their camera fixed, even though it was past warranty, and some were not.

Camera error # E45


Camera error # E45 may be caused by the shutter/lens mechanism failure. This needs the cameara to be sent to Kodak if you are to use your warranty but seeing you may be far off from where you bought it here is my suggested solution-: 1. Put the Camera on the AC Adapter and switch it on. This may solve your problem if not... 2. Slightly smack or tap the side of the camera or lens several times with your shoe or boot while switching it on . This may shake off the dirt stuck between the shutter mechanism and release your camera to work again. Do not smack or hit it on a very hard surface. Please advise me if this worked for you. Thanks for using Fixya.com for your requirements.
