Default Factory Backup Camera

Would it be possible for someone who has the factory backup camera to post a picture of the screen when the camera is on. Im having problems with mine and the dealer keeps saying it normal but my camera lense looks like it is falling back into the housing and i see more of my tail gate rather the ground or bumper.

Thank you

Find one on the dealer's lot and compare it to yours in front of the service guy.

Cool backup camera

I have a diff problem. when mines is on, it has wavy line going through it, some kind of feedback. so far they have installed a new radio, still broke, now they're going to replace the harneses, one at a time. the rear harness is on back order. this problem since the first two days. has open ticket, but has been in shop three times already. not only is it no wavy, it far from being clear?

Mine does this too. Seems to be off and on. I really notice it when I back into my spot at work early in the morning, when it's dark.

When I back in at home I don't notice it at all.

Mine is wavy as well. It is really noticable at night time. I have replaced all harnesses and no difference. The only thing left is the camera which I have not done yet. Dodge will not warranty my concern because I did the install. I was certain that everything was installed correctly but it is good to know that I am not alone on this issue. I felt that there might be a problem with the rear tailgate harness after I replaced the main harness but the concern is still there after replacing the main and rear harness. When I went to order the rear harness about 8 weeks ago it was on backorder then it became availabe about 3 weeks ago and I installed the new one. I have not replaced my radio but since one of the members above had already done that I feel good about the radio not being the concern.

Please keep this topic updated. I would love to find out where the problem is.

Default backup camera frustration

they have done all the electrical checks possible (dodge tech)

now they are going to replace harneses, starting at the rear. the harness is in back order. if this does not work, the second harness under the dash is next. wonder if it will be on back order. this is just crap. i use my camera all the time and it looks like a piece of shit when viewing. they have trucks on the lot that don't do this.

what's next?

Have they replaced the camera, I have already had to replace mine for the same issue, its not the harnesses its the camera. And Haydenwars camera view is proper.
