Rear camera to show on screen in reverse? panasonic cq-vd7001u
I have the camera hooked up to the reverse wires and the camera works perfect in reverse on my panasonic cq-vd7001u.the problem is that when i take the car out of reverse it switches to a black screen. is there a way where i can get the camera to show automaticly when i go to reverse and then switch back to my home blue screen when its not? any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: rear camera to show on screen in reverse? panasonic...
It sounds like you may not have it wired correctly. When the vehicle is reverse the cam works, but when you shift to any other gear IE: park, drive etc you go to black screen as if no signal. I had basically the same problem on my unit, different unit but...on the back of my unit there was a wire, you probably have the same, that said rear cam 12v dc.I assumed this meant any positive wire would do, but this is NOT the case. That wire must be hooked to the 12v positive reverse light. With my cam I had the wires from the cam hooked up, red to positive reverse light wire, black to ground and obviously video wire to the video in on the unit. but the problem arose with that rear cam 12v dc wire on the back of the unit. It NEEDS to be connected to the same 12v dc wire as the cam itself. This acts as a 'switch' when in reverse, IE: the reverse lights come on sending power to the wires to turn on the cam. When you're not in reverse the camera 'switches off' because the lights are not on, thus no power is being sent to the wires, thus returning the unit to its normal operating screen. This worked for me, hope it helps. Good Luck.

the red wire is on and off, the yellow is live, black is ground, blue is amp turn on, brown is suppose to go to the e-brake. the four speakers are gray, purple,green, and white (one is all (color)(+) the other is (color) with a black line(-))
the rest should be self explanatory, also you can go to any stereo shop and get a universal radio hook up harness and just match up the colors and plug it in, very simple.
OK JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH PANASONIC AND THEY STILL HAVE NOT MAD THE NAVIGATION UNIT FOR THIS RADIO BUT YET THEY HAVE THE BUTTON ON THE RADIO. WHAT A RIP THEY CHARGED AN EXTRA 300 DOLLARS FOR A BUTTON THAT WONT WORK AND MAY NEVER WORK. SORRY GUY'S
what i have done when i had one was i held the joystick on the player
for about 3-5 seconds and then pressed the mode/power on the remote and
it reset the player and entered in 0000 for the code and it works. just
my personal experience.
You need the remote control that goes with this DVD player to make it work it has two security devices. One you remote, you must push the power button on the remote the first time you use it. Two the security code, it is a four digit code that must be entered anytime that the device is installed into a different car. If it's code is not setup yet the code is 0000, otherwise you need to get the code from the person that installed it. There is no way to bypass the these two steps.
sounds like dual zone is activated, itll allow you to play dvd in back but not when youre driving. you may have to frig the unit to allow dvd display whilst driving, this usually involves a cable thats supposed to connect to your handbrake.
