Having problems with your Fuji Finepix Z20fd Digital Camera ?

Read error appears when I try to replay and delete previous pictures

Answers :

Try hooking up the memory card to a card reader to your computer, and check to see if the computer can read it. If it can, you might have oxidized card contacts inside the camera.
\015\012Clean the contacts on the memory card as well, with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol.
\015\012Try another card, to see if the camera recognized that one.
\015\012If the camera still can't recognize the card or another good card, it will need servicing. Here is Fuji's Support Site:
