White Spot on Camera

Last week on my 2014 Limited GC the backup camera has a white spot. The lens is clean. The dot seems to shirk or grow with light condition/focusing. Anyone else had this issue? I tried reflash of radio and fuse for camera. No changes.

A picture tells 1043 words, can you post a couple for clarity of your issue?

Bad pixel(s) in the camera?

Re: White Spot on Camera

^ I vote what MDBones said, but I agree that it's dealer time! That is definitely not normal.

Re: White Spot on Camera

Any updates on this issue?
I have a similar one and I think it looks bigger at night, maybe due to high ISO and low light

Re: White Spot on Camera

Looks like some bad sensors in the camera. Dealer should replace camera under warranty.

Re: White Spot on Camera

I think those are specs of dust/dirt on the inside of the lens. I would try tapping on the plastic lens to see if it may loosen and fall out of view? But I would def. bring to dealer.

Re: White Spot on Camera

Finally got into the dealer about my camera spot. They replace the camera. Didn't take more than an hour. As good as new.
