Re: rear view camera
The unit uses a wire from the back of the head unit to connect to the vehicle wire that sends voltage to your reverse lights. If this wire isn't connected or isn't connected correctly, the head unit can't tell when your vehicle goes into reverse. Most installers don't bother with that wire if the unit isn't being installed with a back-up camera.

The Green wire is a reverse trigger wire. It should be tied into the reverse light hot wire. This tells the monitor to turn on and switch to Video 2 so that it displays what is seen by the backup camera. When you take the vehicle out of reverse thus removing power from the green wire, the monitor switches back to normal driving mode. ( no video displayed ).
if i remember correctly, on your back up camera there are 2 wires a red one (power) and a black (ground). you will need to pull off one of the tail lights and find the reverse bulb/ wire. u will take the ground wire and mount it to the frame of your vehicle. then u will need to find the power of the reverse light. take the red wire and splice into the power of the reverse. u will then need a separate wire and run it from the spliced wires to your lanzar player. doing it this way will make the camera come on and the lanzar to switch to view when u have your vehicle in reverse
That is the message you get when you are connected to a backup camera. When you put the car in reverse it will switch automatically if you have the reverse trigger hooked up. you can also switch to the camera while driving and use it as a rear view cam. Some backup cameras actually reverse the image while some do not. If you don't have a backup camera you need to turn that source off and it will stop appearing. I had the same unit in my car with the camera and it was great. Pioneer makes a nice camera but you can find a number of them from other makers that are just as good.
Rear View Camera Input: The VM9313 features a composite video input and a green/white wire lead attached to the harness for connection of a rear view camera. If a rear-view video camera is connected, the unit is on, and the TFT monitor is retracted inside the unit, the TFT monitor automatically moves into the viewing position and Camera modes is selected upon shifting into Reverse gear. When shifting into Drive gear, the TFT monitor is retracted back inside the unit. If the monitor is already in a viewing position and in display mode, the monitor automatically switches to Camera mode upon shifting into Reverse. When the reverse driving stops, the monitor returns to its original input display mode. You can choose for the monitor to display a Mirror mode image or a Normal mode image from the rear-view camera.
I am just giving a suggestion. I too need to know how to wire this. From what you posted it sounds like you hooked the wire to a constant +12v that is always on. Forgive me if I am wrong. Anyway, Did you connect this wire to rear reverse light power. I think from what you say it is supposed to be connected to the positive side of that light. If this solves your problem can you PLEASE let me know the full details of everything else you hooked up on the circuit to make the backup work. For instance what is the label of the orange wire. TIA.
