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.

Regards
Andrea

Camera error #e45 kodak digital camera v610


Hello :

This 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- Better to call KODAK and see what they're willing to do for you.

Not supported solution is to smack the side of the camera . That helped some people with the same error .

Please read this useful link carefully : Kodak cam errors forum

I hope this will help .

It shows Camera error 45 what to do?


The Error 45 report you have seen on your camera is related to a lens issue. Something has caused the lens to jam or stop working. When it does you get the E45 error. Update the firmware and the error should go away

Kodak digital camera V705 -error 45


Hi!
E45 means that a focus error occurred or the MCU BOARD malfunctioned. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. It's a hardware problem. You should contact your local Kodak service center.

Camera error #E45


Your fix could be as simple as cleaning the camera's battery contacts, or it could be something more serious and expensive. Before you pay for expensive repairs that you may or may not need, check the Kodak Help Center by clicking on the link below. It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Error E45


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.

E 45 error


My camera has the same problem. How could Kodak get away with that? Kodak V530 is a piece of garbage. I called Kodak's customer service. They offered repair for only $110. It is ridiculous, why we have to pay for manufactured defect? Take a look at the Kodak V530 on eBay. There are a lot of defective V530 up for sale. The government should review this E45 error lens issue, and have them take care of that. Or we should never buy Kodak again!!!!
