How can I turn on rear view camara without putting car in reverse?

In most jurisdictions it is required to work that way. This is to prevent driver distraction from the screen contents when the car is in forward motion, The purpose of the rear view camera is to provide backing assistance only. Modifications may be considered illegal and can result in civil or criminal litigation, so most here will not assist you by giving instructions on how to do it to avoid potential liability.

When put in reverse the image is up side down.

How to Reverse the Image on Backup Camera eHow


After installing a backup camera on your vehicle, you need to reverse the image so that the image on the screen matches that of your rear-view mirror. The orientation must match so that the driver doesn't get confused with two conflicting images. The nature of the camera's technology is that its image will be recorded un-reflected, but the mirror will display a reflected image. Fortunately, the engineers who designed back-up cameras thought of this and created simple controls for you to change the orientation.

Poineer AvicD3 4300 system in my truck has always worked when I put it in reverse. Now it is not working in reverse but will work in drive and park.

First what system do you have? The D3 or the 4300. You might check to see if you turned on the rearview camera. If so this could be your problem. The rearview camera comes on when you put the vehicle in reverse, turning off anything else until the vehicle is put back into another gear.

My toyota vitzs 2007 modal came with NDDN w56 multi av station i fixed a rear view camera by connect the vedio yellow cable and power to the reverse gear light but when put reverse gear no no display .any...

you don't need any settings actually it works with a three wire camera because the camera operates on 7volts and is powdered by the system, no need to connect it with the reverse switch, its already wired to the system, just connect the camera and will work.

Pioneer system says caution: screen may appear reversed? was working all day i went to walmart and it was fine then as i started my car when i was leaving this appeared with a black screen

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.

Hi - I'm trying to install backup camera - it needs 12v - can I hook the power up with reverse tail light - I suspect it is 6v only? I want to poser the camera when reversing the car. Thanks

Your camera is 12V. You suspect the reverse tail light is 6V. If your vehicle is 12V, as most are, then the reverse light is 12V. Some vehicles, large trucks, etc., may be 24V, but 6 V vehicles haven't been around for many decades. Confirm that your camera voltage matches the vehicle voltage.
Related to your question- There may be times other than when you are in reverse that you want to have the camera on. For example, if you are installing it on a motor home. I've driven a MH with the camera on most of the time and it has been useful as it provides a better view immediately behind the vehicle than the side view mirrors. If we don't want it we can turn off the monitor.
If you don't have a live 12V feed at the back of your vehicle, you could either run the wire from the front from a terminal which is switched on when the key is "on", or consider connecting it to a tail light wire. You'd have to turn on the tail lights to have the camera activate, but you can do that any time and leave them on while driving. At night the camera would always be on, but the monitor can be switched off. Bear in mind that some cameras can take several seconds (especially when cold outside) to provide a decent picture, so if you connect it to the reverse light you may need to be patient before backing.

Rear view camera setting???

Dear debbie,
This could be caused by the following:
Purple/white "reverse sensor wire" not connected to vehicles reverse lamp harness. (Are your reverse lamps functioning?)
Reverse cam video out not connected to Kenwood's "rear view camera input" (Yellow RCA socket behind the unit).
The monitor set up controls merely switch R-cam betwen "full, just, zoom and normal" modes. No provision here to ebnable or disable the cam.
When you put your car in reverse dos the monitor screen change?.
