    I just wired up a stock '09 tailgate latch camera and a '09 Mirror, with the monitor in it. When I shift into reverse the screen comes on for a second or two then goes off. And it is all blue. Sort of like the old Windows Blue Screen Of Death.

    Do any of you techie types have any idea why this is? I checked to see if I had flipped the video feed and ground, or the power and ground, but they seem to be correct. Of course I could be way off. But before I feed 12 volts down the video out of the camera, I thought I would see if anyone else had this problem , and how did you fix it?

    I have the pin out for the plug coming from the camera, and the pinout from the mirror.

    Yo! My truck just got hit a couple of weeks ago and I just got it back from the body shop today. When I got into my truck, I put it into reverse and the blue screen came on. I told one of the guys in the shop and they crawled underneath the driver's side rear end and made sure the connection was tight. It then turned back on. I just went out to my truck to look at the connection for you, all that to say, check to ensure your connection is tight.... No, I didn't just install my camera but it could be a simple fix. Let me know if this works!;)
