Why is My Reversing Camera Kit Not Working Properly?
A reversing camera is an excellent tool that is enormously beneficial, preventing accidents, helping with parking, and lots more. While most reversing camera kit systems are designed for reliability and longevity, sometimes even the best technology can encounter problems and maybe even fail. If you are experiencing issues with your reversing camera kit, the good news is most problems are minor and can be solved quickly and easily. Let’s have a look at some common rear vision camera problems and how they can be fixed.
Image is in Black and White
Fraying wires or faulty connections can cause a black and white image being displayed. If your display is flashing or giving you black and white static, it’s likely the case that you have a fraying wire or a faulty connection. Make sure all of the cables and connections in your system are fully connected and repair any damage if required.Take our VM1 4.3 Inch Wired Backup Camera System as example, if it is black and white image, pls press"M" key on the back of the monitor, setting SATURATION, pressing "+" key increase the value. Also, check the extension cable, do not connect to the brake lights.
Camera Does Not Come Up During Reverse Gear or No Image Shows On the Screen
Reversing cameras automatically start as soon as the reverse gear has been engaged. If the image is not immediately shown, then there must be a problem somewhere within the system. There’s a couple of things you can do:
Check the manual provided by the supplier to ensure the kit is installed and set up correctly
Check the wiring – loose or poorly attached and connected wires may not deliver the images
If your display is not powering on at all, it’s likely a problem with the display, not the camera. It might be improperly connected (make sure that you’ve got the right level of power being sent to the display) or the monitor is damaged or broken.
Camera Says ‘No Signal’
There are a number of reasons that your camera might be giving you this message. If it’s a Wi-Fi camera, and it was working previously, it likely means that the camera needs a reset. You could also check the wiring and the power cables as a wire may have frayed or a cord may have become disconnected.
These are just a few of the potential issues that your rear vision camera system may face. Most of these problems are not too complex and should be solved through some simple checks and maintenance. If the problems persist, chances are you need a new reversing camera kit.
