How can I watch the backup camera when the car is in drive

I have a KVT-719 DVD with a CCD-2000 rear view camera. The camera works in reverse gear, or in drive with the E brake on. I also have a navigation unit so I do not want to mess that up. I would like use the rear view camera in drive with the E brake off.

Here's what you do. Purchase a Y rca splitter it has 1 female end and 2 male. Place one into your rear view camera input and 1 into the video 1 or 2 which ever is not occupied. Then switch to that source and camera becomes a full time video while driving. I use this to haul my four wheeler so I can see them on trailer.

    Also ground the green wire from head unit to the chassis. That will override the e brake and allow viewing anytime

Put in a $2.00 dollar switch inline with wire and ground one side and connect other side to brake wire and flip switch whenever you want it to work

How to Reverse the Image on Backup Camera eHow

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT REAR VIEW CAMERAS

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.

Kenwood KVT-617DVD - Rear Camera Option Not Working


Hi,

Since "...everything else is working..." indicates that there is no blown fuse or chances are nor any hardware is at fault.

When the battery was disconnected, the Kenwood KVT-617DVD may have suffered a memory failure and would require a reset.

Have you tried doing a reset? It's a small recessed button near the bottom right side of the font panel underneath the protection panel (right of the Joystick Track/Station Key & above the Eject Disc Key). Pressing the reset button should restore the Kenwood KVT-617DVD to default factory settings. Of course this will also remove any special programming that you may have such as favorite stations, etc.

You also posted "...Parking brake requirement...bypassed..." this is only to allow the display to be always ON. This is the green wire that must be grounded
You need also to check that the "Reverse" wire/trigger is also bypassed that is to set the "...camera...full time...rear view mirror and back-up monitor for the truck camper..." This is the pink wire that must be attached to the ACC of the vehicle's Ignition Switch. Alternately, it may be connected to the red wire of the Kenwood KVT-617DVD.

If the reset does not correct the problem, you may need to run the setup menu again following the user's manual. Should you need a copy, it is available on line here. Pls verify that you set R-Cam Interruption to ON & R-Cam Mirror to Reverse. This is better explained with appropriate illustrations in page 69 of the User's Manual.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Pyle plcm7300bt what does the green wire reverse car wire connect to + or ground


The green wire connects to the backup lights control. When the gear shift is in "Reverse" this acts as the switch on the "Monitor" and turns the system on so you can see what's behind you to safely "Backup" Hope this helps you.

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.

My pioneer double din screen says ''Caution, screen image may appear reversed''...how can i solve this problem?


Hi,

As you know, you can use this DVD AV Receiver with a rear view camera. And also it can be installed to switch automatically from the video to rear view image when the gear shift of the car is moved to Reverse position.

But it is important to use a camera which outputs mirror reversed images.
Otherwise the screen image may appear reversed. And this means that you will see the rear view reversed in the monitor. And that may cause accicent and injury.

To solve this problem, first check your rear camera whether it has the capability to output mirror reversed images.

If it is, then check the wire connections of the rear camera using the operation manual or ask a technician.

Also check the settings of camera polarity if it is set properly or not in the system menu when connecting the rear view camera.

You can download the operation manual (pdf file) by clicking here.

I hope this helps.

If you would like to vote for the answer, this will help the others to see the similar problems solved and also will be a satisfaction factor for me to continue helping you.

All the best.

What does the green/white wire connect to on my jensen vm9312hd? Says it is reverse +


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.
