Top 20 Fuji DX-7 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Your camera is intended for serial connection.
You can get RS-232 to USB adapters, but I'm pretty sure that they wont work with your camera. DX-7 was originally equipped with 5V Smartmedia cards. Newer (!) type cards are 3,3V. You can get a card-reader for 3,3V cards but not for 5V cards.
You can tell the difference between 5V and 3,3V by the missing corner of the card. Seen from the "golden side" 3,3V cards are missing upper right corner, while 5V cards are missing upper left corner.
I don't remember if DX-7 could use both types.

Make sure you have more than 8 MB of memory allocated to sd-t7. This does not mean you only need 8 MB in your Mac. Use "Get info." Command to assign at least 8 MB for sd- t7.

There is a problem due to comm.drv which is located in system folder of Win.3.11. If the comm.drv is dated Nov.1. 1993 and is 5,968 bytes, please check the property of the comm.drv within your PC. Although the problem is due to the comm.drv, FUJI has prepared a new sdt-7 for Win.311. Please call Customer service at to obtain the sdt-7 or go to the ftp site and download sdt7w31v20.exe. It is important that your PC has Win 32s loaded before install your new sdt-7.

As long as the camera is taking pictures and playing back the pictures on its LCD, most of time the camera is OK. Serial communication port of Digital Camera is rarely damaged. If you are using Windows '95, there is a way of verifying the serial communication port. Following are the instructions: a. Open Control Panel from the Start/Settings menu. Double-click Accessibility options, then go to Mouse and activate mouse keys. This feature enables you to use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer. (For details please refer to the Help index of Windows 95) b. Turn off the PC and the Digital camera. Remove the Serial mouse from 9 pin connector, then connect Data transfer cable to the 9 pin connector and the other end of cable connect to the Digital camera. Turn ON the PC and the Digital camera. From this point the numeric keypad can be used for Mouse functions. Start the FUJI data transfer software, select COM 1 from the Communication ports within the "Communications Settings" item of the "Camera" Menu. c. Go to "Get images from Camera" of the "Camera" Menu. If you get a blank thumbnail, your Digital camera is communicating to the PC. To receive thumbnails of all pictures go to "Edit", go to "Select All", then click the 3rd Icon from the left. Progressive indicator shows "Receiving thumbnails". In this case the Camera is OK, and the problem is other than with the Digital camera.

Most of the time the problem is due to the serial port setting of your PC. Please follow instructions below. Cause Camera is not communicating to your PC. Remedy Please check the following. 1. Cable connection. 2. Camera is ON and in PC mode. 3. Camera's batteries are not exhausted. 4. Go to Communication setting from "Camera" and make sure proper COM port is selected. 5. If your PC has external input device, disable its driver such as "Hot Sync" or similar drivers. 6. If your PC supports PS2 mouse, please use it instead of serial mouse. Then one serial port is available for the Digital camera. 7. Check in the BIOS Setup Screen to make sure the serial port of the PC is not disabled. Also, if your personal computer is equipped with an internal modem or infrared port, it may cause conflicts with port assignments internally that will not allow communication with your camera and PC. In such case, it is necessary to change the COM port setting for serial port. For details, see the User's Manual for your personal computer, or ask at the store where you purchased your personal computer

No, these cameras are not compatible with Windows XP. We recommend using a memory card reader such as the DPC-R1 to read directly from your camera's SmartMedia card.

Check available memory as above. If your Mac is Power Mac 7500, 8500, 9500 and OS is system 7.5.2, you need a patch (serial DMA) or upgrade to the latest version of the OS. Also, we recommend you use the latest version of OS for all other Macs.

Follow the "instructions" in the "manual"

Check batteries and the terminals that connect to your batteries. Often the contacts get corroded because batteries have acid in them.

It sounds like maybe one of the pins are broke, I wold try flashlight and magnifying glass to inspect it, If you find one of the mettle contacts on the card is broke it is probably ok to just pull it out firmly it will break the card contacts but I doubt it will harm you camera ~T?M~

Check the basics first. Some of these suggestions may sound silly but I have done stuff like this. Have you got something screwed to the tripod mount? This can overlap the door and stop it opening. Have you dropped or bashed the camera recently? Are you moving the door slide release in the correct direction? Check there is no damage visible on the camera or if there's anything trapped round the edge of the door jamming it? Using a gentle but firm pressure with you thumb, press the door down into the 'closed' position. (I find sitting with the camera in my lap works best for this). Then use the slide release on the door. Release the pressure to see if the door has opened. You might need to roll your thumb round in flat circles to feel if the door is tight or slack when closed. If this doesn't work or you have found some damage I would recommend you take it to a camera specialist as they will have the correct tools and skills to sort it out.
