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.
