2011 JGC Ltd. - Blank Screen w/ Rear Camera

Hopefully you guys can offer some help. When I put the car in Reverse, all I get is a black screen with the "Check your surroundings" message from the rear camera. I've seen on other posts that it could possible be a bug with the firmware I'm running or even a problem with the TIPM (God, I hope not).

Any other trouble shooting steps I should take to diagnose the problem? Thanks in advance.

Ours started with the blank/"check surroundings" screen the first winter after purchase (2012) when the temperature dropped below freezing. They replaced the camera itself which didn't work, then they replaced the head unit and that solved the problem.

Hoping for a quick fix. From researching many sites, it appears the "fix" for the black screen is either replacing the camera or head unit. Looks like my lifetime warranty will be kicking in again. Costs $100 a visit. Just wanted to ensure it wasn't something I could fix myself.

Well worth the $100 visit. The radio is an $1800 dealer part alone if that's the problem. Count your blessings and gladly pay that $100!

Dealer replaced the camera and performed 2 recalls. Ended up with 2 new key fobs. $100 out the door.

Way too cool!

Doing all of that is probably pushing $1k out of warranty.

I did the same recently with a leaking ac condenser. $1100 out of warranty... but only $100 deductible. Absolutely love it!
