Tech service recommended checking cable connections behind TV. I did this and tightened 2 connections, altho I was getting good TV reception through this cable. This gave me a little bit of image at the bottom of the screen, still 80% glare. I removed the lens cover, no moisture was apparent. The lens looked dirty outside and inside (like dirty eyeglasses). I removed the lens, similar to a telescope eyepiece. It is a double lens. Holding it up to a light, little flecks of dirt appear to be on the back of the lenses and betweem them. I could not unscrew the 2 lens, without damaging the lens. I cleaned the lenses with eyeglass solution and blew out the inside of the camera, before reassembly. A local Video repair shop recommended this method. This improved the image to about 50% image and 50% glare. Not there yet. Our vendor list for the 99 Alpine lists Innovision as the supplier, they answer the phone as STC Provision. WRV tech said it was a Jensen camera. My next step is to buy a new lens, if I could locate one. Or go to a video repair shop and have them seperate the lenses, clean and reassemble, and hope that is the solution.
