Reverse camera & side cameras went black

2015 FR3 DS30

First the reverse camera view on dash screen went black and then a week later the left turn / right turn camera views went black. It still shows the white letters over black screen though. This a fuse issue? A loose connection behind dash panel?

The first thing to check is connection behind the dash panel. You can reach it without taking anything apart. Reach up from the passenger side to the head unit (radio), and it is a round push on jack. It is the first connection on the back of the radio you will feel from that direction. Just push it in and see if the camera's wake up. That's as far as I've ever had to go so I don't know what to do if it doesn't work for you.

certainly sounds like a bad connection problem, probably at the head unit as most cameras are direct connection to the camera body... letters on the screen indicate the screen is still working so certainly camera signal not getting through to screen.. plugging un-plugging the connector from cam wire from back may "clean" the connection... if this works then please post it up
