is this a headunit you have just installed? if not then I am not sure, but if it is, try swapping the red and yellow wires over. One should have permanent live, the other should be switchable. (unless you want the headunit to stay on when the ignition is off, in which case put them both to a permenant live feed.) Hope this helps.
i don't know exactly what system you are using
from what you stated your saying the monitor is powering up when put car into reverse
but the camera is not coming on
what this tells me is either the camera it self not getting power or ground
u hooked up the video wire between monitor
the camera needs to get power some how it might be the wire that hooks into monitor but i don't think so usually that just the video wire (but depends on system)
i assuming there is one or two more wires on the camera itself that needs hooked up
a power wire
and a ground wire if there no ground wire then frame where camera is mounted to on car needs to be cleaned of all rust and paint
I assumed allot if this don't help you at all please let me Make and Model # of your camera system and i try and help you more
Check your power and ground and make sure they are secure and the wire you are tapping into can handle the draw. You can hook it directly to the battery for testing purposes. If it works then your power and ground are to blame, if not then it is the unit.

Yo, I've got the perfect solution to your problem. Pull out the head unit from your dash. Then, remove the wiring harness carefully from the unit. Now, push in the yellow power wire (even jiggle it a little) making sure it's tightly snug the small port of the wiring harness. Then, plug the harness back into the unit and try turning it on. I've found that the wires come lose easily on this unit. hit me back up at Darkintel74@aol.com.
