    Problems with my Reverse Camera

    Hi Guys,

    I'm currently having issues with my reverse camera. Been using it for a while now with now issues, but suddenly, today it doesn't seem to work. The camera pops out when I'm in reverse, but nothing shows up on the display. The display is working fine, just the camera display doesn't work?

    Please help!!

    Try off and on the head unit. Probably just a software bug and power cycle will fix it up.

    i say just go back to the dealer and get them to work it out. if there is a problem, it should be covered under warranty anyway

    With the car locked, flip the VW badge on the boot and make sure no one stole it!!!

    If the screen changes from say the Radio to blank when you select reverse it is a coding problem. to get the camera to work there are several coding steps. Check out my RVC DIY.
    I would say that for some unknown reason one of the codings has been lost or simply the multipin plug in the back of the RNS510 has simply fallen out.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I found out that if you unlock the boot with your key and don't close it again, the camera will flip out but not show up on the screen. Took me about 1.5 hours of sitting in my car to figure it ou

    Shit I should have realized, the same thing happened to me after i installed mine. it did not work because I left the hatch up.

    I had a similar once off with mine. Went to reverse and the screen went blank but no image. After coming back to the car later on the problem was gone. A Vagcom scan threw up a fault code related to an intermittent signal but it's not happened again so I didn't bother with it.
