Wired System Troubleshooting

Welcome to our guide on troubleshooting wired backup camera systems for vehicles. In this comprehensive guide, we will provide you with expert advice and solutions to common issues that you may encounter with your wired backup camera system.

Before we dive into the troubleshooting steps, let's briefly discuss the benefits of wired backup camera systems. These systems offer reliable and high-quality video transmission, ensuring a clear view of the rear of your vehicle. With features such as night vision and IP69 waterproofing, wired backup camera systems provide enhanced safety and convenience during your travels.

Now, let's address some common issues you may face with your wired backup camera system:

1. No video signal: If you're not receiving any video signal on your monitor, start by checking the connections between the camera, monitor, and power source. Ensure that all cables are securely plugged in and free from any damage. If the issue persists, try replacing the cables to rule out any potential wiring problems. Do a hard reset, unplug all cables, leave out for 1 minute and then re-connect them.
Check to ensure that the connection to the camera is tight.
Verify camera cable is plugged into port labeled backup camera
Verify that the red positive trigger on power harness cable is put to power 12v+.

2. Poor video quality: If you're experiencing blurry or distorted video, first clean the camera lens and monitor screen with a soft, lint-free cloth. Ensure that the camera lens is not obstructed by dirt or debris. If the problem persists, please contact us in time.

3. Interference: If you're encountering interference or static in the video feed, check for any nearby sources of electromagnetic interference, such as other electronic devices or power lines. Try repositioning the camera or using shielding materials to minimize interference. Additionally, ensure that the camera and monitor are properly grounded.

4. Power issues: If your camera is not receiving power or the monitor is not turning on, check the power connections and ensure that the power source is functioning correctly. Test the camera and monitor with a different power source to determine if the issue lies with the equipment or the power supply.

5. Installation problems: If you're experiencing difficulties during the installation process, refer to the manufacturer's installation guide or seek professional assistance. Ensure that all connections are properly made and follow the recommended installation steps to avoid any issues.

6.Monitor will not power-up (the power indicator LED lights is always off)
Check fuse
Check 12v+ to monitor
Check ground connection
Check this product within the voltage range(12-32V) specified.

7.No image on screen
Verify camera is on correct camera input
Verify cable is connected to monitor
Verify camera is connected to cable
Connect known working camera and cable to monitor.

8.No parking guideline on camera
Verify parking guideline setting is on
Verify chosen camera is CH2 channel, invalid for CH1 channel
Verify and make sure if the green reverse trigger wire is properly connected to backup light wire.
Verify and put the vehicle into reverse.

I purchased the W01/WX02 system from Amazon 7/2020. It has worked flawlessly since it was installed in my horse trailer (two cameras) one on the back of the trailer, one inside the trailer. I have been able to move the monitor from my truck into my motorhome when using the unit without any issues. This past week I was using the horse trailer and was changing the monitor to see only the outside camera. I believe I accidentally unpaired the units. The screen on the monitor has gone black. When I try to pair the unit with the two cameras. It will show the 1 and 2 on the screen, but never goes back to the actual view of the outside or inside of the trailer. These cameras are hard wired and the monitor is definitely getting power. Any suggestions or solutions to this issue would be deeply appreciated. (I have taken the monitor into the horse trailer and used a battery jumper to power up the monitor, so it is within 3 feet of the camera inside the trailer without success.) Sincerely, Linda Riley
