Having problems with your Fuji Finepix Z20fd Digital Camera ?

"Communication Error" (That's for sure. Fuji camera HELP!)

\015 I've never had this problem before, but now when I try to download (upload? I never remember the difference) pics and videos from my Fuji FinePix Z20fd to my laptop (Windows Vista, btw), it takes about 10 seconds, then I get the message 'communication error!' on my camera screen. I've looked through my manuals, and online, but no luck. I can't figure it out. I hope someone can help!\015

Answers :

I can only solve this for my camera. The USB cord provided me has a profile that is too big to properly connect to the camera. The camera will display USB when the cable is plugged in but then gives the "communication error". By taking the same cable and carefully inserting it then hold the camera carefully as not to break anything. Turn the camera on and then push really hard and hold it. After that my laptop saw it has a new device then figured out it was a camera. You might be able to ease up on the cable then but be careful it does not come out. From there I could see it in "my computer" and on the software provided with the camera. The cable seems a bit sensitive and I could not replace it with any of my other mini USB cables so I will have to search for a proper cable.

Hope this works for you.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Error I was erasing an image on my cf card in camera last week and being it was a tiff I set the camera down as the hourglass spun in the processing mode. The camera then shut off after less than a minute and the only thing that came up was a solid error code on the lcd. No power. Autofocus works, and the nightlight feature works and that's it. Nothing on the back of the camera lights up.I've talked to Fuji about it and was told to make sure the lens was on all the way and replace all the batter
