Use a relay.

run a power lead from the battery to the lead, tap your reverse light positive for signal and output the relay to your camera.

Its simple and efficient and better than running the camera directly from the reverse +

You might try the truly wireless QuickVu(TM) Wireless Backup Camera. Run the yellow RCA cable from the receiver to your Sony unit, if it has an RCA input. The QuickVu camera has no wires, so that part is really easy. Buy direct from the manufacturer!

Were does the backup wire go to on a clarion vz400


You use that when hooking up a backup camera to the unit, so that the camera image will show when you put your vehicle is put into reverse. Typically it is wired to your reverse lights when you install a camera.

Rear camera to show on screen in reverse? panasonic cq-vd7001u


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.

Rear view camera


The unit uses a wire from the back of the head unit to connect to the vehicle wire that sends voltage to your reverse lights. If this wire isn't connected or isn't connected correctly, the head unit can't tell when your vehicle goes into reverse. Most installers don't bother with that wire if the unit isn't being installed with a back-up camera.
