    My kodak v570 has an "error code E-45, see user guide" coming up when I turn it on. I looked into the Kodak website, but the downloadable user guide does not have error codes in it. They have an error section on the site, but it just wants you to take out the battery and/or the memory card and replace. If that doesn't do it, send it in for them to repair.

    Just wondering if anyone is familiar with this message and if the camera is worth repairing for that error. It is out of warranty, of course!

    Thanks, in advance, for any help.

    Luella's Kodak lasted less than a year. It wasn't worth fixing. Catch a sale on Sony or Nikon cameras

    Not good news.

    As I recall - when mine posted that error it turtned out that it was related to the "autofocus" not accomplishing it's task. I checked into sending it in but decided retirement was the best option for the old workhorse, it certainly earned it. There are several ultrawide angle models to choose from now that take better pictures IMHO, my Samsung TL320 takes fantastic pictures but is not as convenient as the old Kodak. You can still find V570's NIB on e-bay occasionally......

    That number error has to do with lens not extending (or retracting).
    If it's stuck extended, I've read in several places that a fairly sharp blow
    "in" on the lens, trying to close it, might break it loose - lenses get jammed due to dust/dirt/dried-up grease.
    OTOH that smack might just plain break it. :shrug:

    Why doesn't the lens retract when I turn off my camera or extend when I turn on my camera?


    Question : Why doesn't the lens retract when I turn off my camera or extend when I turn on my camera? Answer : The batteries may be low or exhausted.

    NOTE: If the batteries run low on power, your camera may turn off without retracting the lens. In most cases, this is normal and can be corrected by recharging the camera batteries.


    In the U.S. and other countries where the Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair tool is available:
    1. Recharge the batteries or install new batteries.

      NOTE: Rechargeable batteries can be charged in the following ways depending on the camera:
      • Remove the batteries and place them in an optional battery charger.
      • Place the camera in a printer dock or a camera dock.
      • With the batteries installed, connect the camera to an AC adapter or to a computer using a USB cable.
    2. For more information, go to KODAK Product Manuals, and select the User's Guide for your camera. To see the battery charging accessories that are available for your camera, go to KODAK Accessories.
    3. If the problem persists, go to the Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair tool.
      • Select Digital camera, camera dock, or digital video camera.
      • Select Lens.
    In countries where the Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair tool is not available:
    1. Remove the batteries, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth.
    2. Install the batteries, then turn on your camera.
    3. If this does not resolve your problem, remove the batteries.
    4. Go to Choosing the Right Battery for Your KODAK Digital Camera, then follow the instructions to verify that you are using the correct batteries.
    5. Install new or fully charged batteries into your camera.

      NOTE: Rechargeable batteries can be charged in the following ways depending on the camera:
      • Remove the batteries and place them in an optional battery charger.
      • Place the camera in a printer dock or a camera dock.
      • With the batteries installed, connect the camera to an AC adapter or a computer using a USB cable.
      • For more information, go to KODAK Product Manuals, then scroll down to select the User's Guide for your camera. To see the battery charging accessories that are available for your camera, go to KODAK Accessories.
    6. Turn on your camera.
    7. If the problem persists, go to Eastman Kodak Company Worldwide Contacts for assistance.

    FWIW, the v570 and v705 cameras do not have lenses that extend/retract like typical pocket zoomers. They use lenses with "folded optics"...

    The most common point of failure on the v570/v705 which may relate to this is the "sliding" cover over the lens "bay"... it is pretty fragile and doesn't take much of a knock to become stuck. You may want to try turning the device on or off and nudging the cover. If you hear it "click", you may have found your culprit. I have one or two old v570's which have this condition and they otherwise work just fine.

    If you can't get it working, I recommend taking a look at my PDF on "appraiser cameras" here: http://appraisersforum.com/showthread.php?t=142348&page=11 Scroll down to find the latest PDF (#105). I have not updated it since December and really need to, but maybe it'll give you a place to start looking. I anticipate updating the PDF before the end of the month.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for all the information! Never expected such detail, but appreciate it. Mine does have a problem with the shutter door not opening quite all the way. A very minute ding in the front of the case. Guess I can work with it for a while.

    OK! The lens cover was/is the culprit. There was a slight ding in the cover that kept it from opening all the way. However, it damaged the gear that retracted the cover and, even with the cover off or pushed back out to shape, the cover will not retract or cover the lens and the error message comes up ...and no chance to take pix.

    Camera stores say it is not economically feasible to repair, but I like the camera for its 23mm lens and taking pix in close places.

    I can take the cover off, and would be willing to work with it that way if someone knows of a "workaround" to prevent the error message.

    Thanks, in advance, for any help you might be able to render!
