Default aftermarket Backup Camera HELP!

hey guys
im new here but im not new to the forum..

i am a member of another forum and can never seem to get any imput from anyone..

i just installed a pioneer avh-x5600bhs with a taotronics tt-cc17 lisence plate backup camera.

when the truck goes to reverse it comes on but the video is VERY static, you cant even make out the picture,

Grounded to the chassis and wired into the reverse wire in the tail lamp
everything is secure and the ground is good..

any idea?

you can not wire to the reverse wire in the tail light. switch the positive wire to the reverse wire in the 7 pin in the trailer plug and it should work. think its the orange/white wire...

i wired mine to the tail light and it works perfectly. Is the monitor wireless? Are you receiving the signal from the camera on Bluetooth?

Feed it power direct from the battery. Just to make sure the unit is good.

thanks guys.. there can only be 3 problems to diagnose before saying the camera is bad.. power, ground, rca cable..
sucks that the whole radio install went flawless and the backup camera is whats slowing me down
