yes you can find generic info on this. most all the systems, no matter name brand, have the same basic installation.
you will need a 12 volt power source for the monitor. the camera power will come from the reverse lights power source(tap into the power at the reverse light), then you will need to run an rca style cable from the camera mounted position to the monitor itself.
so every time you put vehicle in reverse the camera comes on.
or you can wire the camera and the monitor through a switch and it will come on anytime the switch is turned on. but if you do this, the switch need to be wired to a ignition controlled power source.
I added some extra line and hooked it up to my trailer plugs' light green wire. I also connected it to the tail light solid green wire. Both produced current the same way. Still blue sreen with no signal...but I am sure this s where to plug them.
You need to connect this to a 12v switching circuit to enable the camera to overide the current display.
For example, you could attach it to the reversing light switch in the gear box so that when you select reverse the picture is over ridden with your camera view. Or to the reversing lamp. You could connect it direct to a switch for manual control.
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?.
The speculation on this webpage:
makes it sound like it is a trigger to switch the monitor to display a rear-facing camera when you put the car into reverse. You would either wire it to a manual switch (to 12v) or to your reverse lights.
