Rear camera or Monitor failure

The rear camera picture on Our Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD (stereo, disc player, XM/Serious radio and rear camera) in our 2007 Allure 470 has gone out. The screen goes black when I turn on the rear camera or put it in reverse. Does anyone know how to remove the unit from the dash, so I can check to see if the video wires have not worked loose. I have already checked the connections at the camera. Also, is there a way to check to see if it is the rear camera or the monitor that is the problem, without purchasing new equipment?
Thank You

I have monitors with video in that I could hook up to test the camera feed. But, you still need to remove the unit from the dash unless you can reach under and unplug the camera wires.

Here's the installation guide for your unit.

I changed out the head unit of my 2007 Allure radio/etc. It was the single DIN Pioneer Avic N3. I replaced it with a single DIN Kenwood KVT-7012BT

The cover over my dash (half moon) slid back from the dash plate and I was able to access all the wiring and back of the head unit easily.

Hope this helps,
Brian

We have lost dash camera feed on more than one occasion. We found that unplugging the junction box under the dash, next to the throttle pedal, and plugging it back in would seemingly “boot” the system and the camera would work. I put a touch of dialectic grease on the contact pins over a year ago and the problem has stopped completely. Good luck and safe travels.

I want to thank everyone who responded to my questions. Brian, thank you for letting me know that the cover over the dash is held in place with Velcro. Today was a travel day, and the camera decided to work. Although it did flicker a few times. I think I am going to take another look at the rear camera. Has anyone removed one that was encased in the rear cap? There is an access panel in the closet to get to the backside, but how do you access the front of the camera?

Thanks

Before trying to dismantle or access the camera, I'd make sure all the connections are firm on the back of the monitor/stereo.

Agree with the above. Sounds like a loose connection which I had at one time.

My cameras were also blacking out, or were not clear.

I also did not like having to look down for my cameras, or having to turn them on, so I purchased a monitor and 3 cameras and got rid of the factory stuff.

Very simple to do as I used all the wires that were already there. Now I have a monitor that shows my rear view and both sides... all the time. Easy to check everything in one glance.

I could not remove the camera in the rear cap, so I just installed the new one below it.

I then replaced the huge radio/nav box with a single DIN stereo, and I'll add a GPS unit.
