B2 License Plate Camera Troubleshooting

As a product expert in the field of wireless backup camera systems for vehicles, I understand that sometimes technical issues can arise. In this guide, I will provide you with troubleshooting steps to help you resolve any problems you may encounter with your license plate camera.

No Video Signal

If you are experiencing a lack of video signal from your license plate camera, there are a few potential causes to consider:

  • Check the power connection: Ensure that the camera is properly connected to a power source. Verify that the power cables are securely connected and that the power source is functioning correctly. Check all of the wiring and confirmed everything is snug nothing is rubbing shorting etc. 
  • Inspect the video cable: Examine the video cable for any signs of damage or loose connections. 

Poor Image Quality

If you are experiencing poor image quality from your license plate camera, consider the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Check for dirt or debris: Inspect the camera lens for any dirt, smudges, or obstructions. Clean the lens gently with a soft cloth if necessary.
  • Adjust camera settings: Some license plate cameras offer adjustable settings for brightness, contrast, or image orientation. Experiment with these settings to improve the image quality.
  • Inspect your head unit: If the image quality issue persists, check the monitor for any potential problems. Ensure that the monitor is functioning correctly and that its settings are properly adjusted.
  • Please check if there is moisture in the lens.
  • This wired camera need to be connected using a standard RCA connector. If an extension lead is required be sure to use a Video cable with RCA type ends. An Audio cable will cause poor picture quality.
  • The B2 wired Camera need to be connected using a standard RCA connector. If an extension lead is required be sure to use a Video cable with RCA type ends. An Audio cable will cause poor picture quality. 

Camera Not Showing Images

If your license plate camera is not showing images, consider the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Check the power connection: Verify that the camera is properly connected to a power source and that the power cables are securely attached. This situation may be due to poor wiring contact, you need to promptly check the wiring and the entire car installation of the junction, to see if there is a false connection.
    If there is, it will naturally lead to the reverse image when the situation does not work, or even a direct black screen is also possible, this time as long as the false connection of the parts of the connection can be completed.
  • Power source issues: Ensure that the power source you are using is functioning correctly. Try connecting the camera to a different vehicle to see if the issue persists.
  • Compatible issue: Ensure that using the power and video cables supplied with our kit. The B2 camera may not work if the wiring from the old camera is used. Even though the plugs are the same the line in is different from old to the B2 camera and please to switch them so camera will be operating.
  • Insufficient voltage: if wirie power from one reverse light was not enough to make the camera work, you can run a power wire from both reverse lights which had enough current to turn the camera on and show an image when reversing. Or order a 12V DC power adapter filter rectifier to solve it.

The image is reversed

  • If the image of the right side of the curb is displayed on the left side when backing up. Please make sure the camera is mounted on the back of the vehicle. Because the B2 camera does not have a mirror function cannot be used as a front view camera.
