Back up camera video out

I just started up the MH after taking it out of winter storage and all is good except the back up camera. The audio fine but no video signal. The screen just lights up but is snowy as if there is no video signal. Does anyone have any ideas where to start? eg is there a fuse or bulb or something else to check?

Thanks in advance for any insights.

If the screen lights up then it's not the fuse. Sounds like a loose connection. Check and see if the harness to the camera is tight.

What brand and model?

Mine has a switch to select another camera if available and will go blank if I select the wrong one. Also mine has a dial to adjust intensity which has gotten moved while cleaning the dash area.

I assume the camera is still there..........

If you have a Jensen brand, look for the reset button. Mine is near the top right of the volume dial. Press it for a few seconds. That works when my unit stops. Hope this helps.

Since you have audio, check the video connection at the back of the monitor.

X2 on the monitor. We had the same problem with ours and it turned out to be a loose wire on the back of the monitor.

Sorry the system is a WEKDEX WDRV -3067 (camera is a WDRV - 7063B) QUESTION: - Is there a fuse or reset switch? I havent removed the camera and tried to connect it directly to the monitor yet (to see if it is the capble) because that involves unsealing it which I would rather not do.

I'd think if it were a fuse or reset switch you would not have static or sound - but that's a pure guess.

When that happened to me a dozen years ago, I discovered someone had stolen the camera off the back of the coach in the storage yard!

This happened to us several times. First time, the camera itself was bad...replaced it. Second time, the connector to the camera had vibrated loose...tightened and worked fine. Third time, squirrel ate the cable. Fixed that, then the monitor died. Replace all three cameras plus the monitor with new color unit.

So, remove the camera and check for cable tightness and continuity. Don't worry about breaking the seal, just when you get it working again, put a little bead of silicone on it and the seal will be fine.

Had a house TV that sat unused for a month several years ago. When tried to use it all had was snow. Repairman told me nothing wrong that it just was damp inside from humidity and to leave it on to dry out. Started working with in a few hours. On my 5er to truck connection I some times have to clean corrosion off receptacle to get a working picture.

I know what happened to it. I just got my motorhome back from the dealer after some warranty work and my camera now has an A and B input. Before it went in, I only had an A input and B input was blank. I take PayPal if you want it back.

All kidding aside, reseat all the connectors you can get to a couple of times. If no work was done on you MH, that is the most likely problem.
