Actually hadn't tried that. Thanks!

I found your system at:
RVS-770619N | Back up camera system | Rear View Safety

The spec sheet shows a brightness level of 400, however that's measured, and I didn't see any indication of an adjustment capability. I also couldn't find a manual there. You might check a search engine and see if you can find one.

We poked around last night on the net for a manual. I'll try from home tonight.

I purchased my RVS-Tailgate camera from them. I found David Newman david@rearviewsafety.com fairly helpful.

Alternatively, you might switch the input to a different channel that has no camera attached. Mine has (3) inputs, one of which is the backup camera.

It will automatically go to rear camera when you shift into reverse; you can then switch to a blank input - you'll then get a blue screen, but it's not as bothersome as the bright night screen from the backup cam.

Fortunately or unfortunately, we have the side cameras occupying the inputs.

With my truck, I used a DPST switch (ON-OFF-ON) and a relay so I could have the camera operate automatically when in reverse or I could turn it on manually or turn it off completely. I did the same thing with the LED backup lights I ordered on eBay. If your setup doesn't allow you to turn off the camera, you could put a toggle switch in the power line to the camera. Obviously, I only have a single camera though. If I were you I'd want the camera to work in all light levels. Hopefully Rear View Safety can help you out.

If your display doesn't have a day/night selection, maybe you can find a brightness adjustment. A brightness level that's good for daylight would probably be way too bright for night.
