  1. 8200 Intermittent Backup Camera Not Working

    I've got a weird backup camera issue with my 8200. Everything was professionally installed, and generally works well, but my backup camera only works intermittently. When I put the vehicle into reverse, the head unit will change to the reverse camera view, but about 50% of the time, it'll be a blank screen, and 50% of the time it'll be the camera feed. Sometimes while I'm backing up, the screen will either switch from the feed to a blank screen, or from a blank screen back to the feed. Other times, it'll stay blank the entire time I'm backing up, or show the feed the entire time I'm backing up. The troubleshooting I've done so far is: Disabling and removing the front camera (in case that was somehow interfering) Updating the unit's firmware Checking the wiring from the rear camera to the headunit for loose connections Anything else I should try?
  2. Hello, New to the forum. Couldn't find any info on here about my problem. I installed a new AVH-X3800BHS last night along with a reverse camera. The camera receives power from the reverse light, and I ran a wire from the reverse light to the head unit (connected to the purple /white wire). It works great when I put the car in reverse, the camera turns on and goes off after the car goes into a different gear. Problem: When driving down the road, the reverse camera screen pops up and is black. I exit out of it and a few seconds later it comes back. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for it to come back. Diagnosis: I think what is happening is the wire that detects the reverse light and connects to the head unit is getting power when it is not in reverse. How I fix this I am not sure? Is there another wire that only receives power when in reverse? 2004 Chevy Malibu Maxx LS Pioneer AVH-X3800BHS -Camera: On -Battery/Gound (both work for reverse, but both have the same problem of randomly coming on while driving) Any ideas??? Thanks!!!
  3. AVIC x100 backup camera

    Hello all - first post. Recently my backup camera began acting strangely. The symptom is that the camera will come on when I enter reverse, but when I shift to drive the camera stays on. This worked for almost a year perfectly before this new symptom. Also, tell tale signs that something has changed - This seemed (keyword) to occur when Android Auto required an very recent update on the phone side. I know the two aren't technically connected, but it is coincidental. BTW - all this happened in the last 30 days or so. The screen on the backup camera used to be just the view of the camera. This was when it worked perfectly. Now, when the camera comes on, there is a symbol in the top left of a clock type icon, and and X in an icon on the top right. IF you touch the clock, the camera goes off, and things resume okay. then 15 seconds later the camera comes back on. Clearly this is a 'delay for 15 seconds' button. If I touch the X button, the camera goes off, and never comes back on. In the camera settings, you find the camera is now turned off - as if someone permanently set it that way. VERY odd! More notes, I took apart the dash and tested the backup sensor wire. It gets 12 volts always, and grounds when in park. This switches correctly if you shift in/out of park so not likely a source of the problem. Further info, When I first connected my phone to the unit last year, it was uneventful. It went easy and smooth for the android auto. Now, you have to be in Park to connect a new phone!? This is likely a change to Android auto right? I had to tear out the dash and wire up the Parking brake which I didn't do the first time around as it was unnecessary. I know you can just ground it out temporarily but I figured why fight it. I wired it correctly and reassembled my dash. Lastly, I saw an upgrade to 1.07 firmware on another post. I'm all for upgrades, but that 1.07 - is there possible value? Have other Avic 8100NEX users done it and feel comfortable? The lastest says "1.07G" is that what others have used? I don't want to upgrade if it could break things, and/or has no value for my problems listed above. Many thanks for your shared wisdom. JIm Shimota Happy with his Pioneer 8100 until recently. I use Android Auto, BlueTooth and USB connected Android phone, a Metra 70-5520 Receiver Wiring Harness, and a PAC SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Adapter and it really does work great!
  4. 2nd Camara and 1.11 Firmware

    I have an 8000 NEX. I just installed 1.11 with seemingly no issues. I then installed a front camera on my truck. I have set the AV input to Camera, but the AV input does not show up on the source list, so I can't select it to use it. I know the camera is functioning, because I can select it in the Picture Adjustments menu, and I can see the image it is producing. I don't know if the problem was there with the old firmware. But youtube has a couple videos showing how to set it up that were made a year or so ago. And it worked then. I'm wondering if they broke or deleted the feature when they updated the firmware. I have the parking brake wire grounded, with the software bypass in place. Any ideas?
  5. recommended camera

    I am finally going to switch out my old Z3 (I think thats the model) to the 8200. Thinking I will add a backup camera too. Any suggestions? I have a Ford Excursion and use it for towing a lot. It would be cool if the camera could show the trailer hitch too! Ideas? Thoughts?
  6. 8200 stuck on camera mode

    Just installed a 8200 and it is stuck in camera mode, I am uploading a YouTube video right now and will link in the comments, I have tried everything any suggestions sint be frowned upon. Thank you.
  7. Rear view camera problem

    My AVIC D3 unit has been installed in my 2006 Kia Sorento. When i either shift into reverse, I get a screen that says the image may be reversed instead of getting any video from the camera. I checked connections to the back of the D3. There appears to be good. Power, ground and video connections all seem good. How can i test to see of the camera is blown? I suspect this is the problem. But i test another camera and i get same problem. Would like to know for sure before i go ahead and order a new one. Thanks.
  8. Hello, I have an issue with an install Im not sure If im missing something. I have the AVH-X2700BS unit my main concern is with the reverse camera. The reverse camera comes with just a black and red wire so I wired the red into the Purple/White Reverse wire and the black in with the radio's ground. With the camera setting on "BATT". Now my main problem is that when initially turn on the unit and put the car in reverse it will go to camera mode, but when the car is put back in drive the camera view does not go away. it will just go to black, since the camera itself is no longer receiving signal. Does anyone has information on how this should properly function or is this just how it is.
  9. hello everyone, wanted to pick your brains on which rear view back up camera you consider best for the nex-8000..I am looking at the pioneer nb6 but wanted input on other models that work better.. thanks
  10. Any suggestion on Camera position and hookup for 2nd camera... is the front a waste of time because of debree, sandbalasting lens, etc. Also, if you cut the wire to the parking brake to install the Microbypass, what happens to your dash indicator light for the brake? Your replys are appreciated, Dan P.S.: my car is a 2003 Infinity g35
  11. Rear view camera AVIC-F930BT

    Hi, I have some problems with the rearview camera on my F930BT. When I turn on the key and I move the gear lever to reverse I have image from the camera. When I start the engine there is no more image from the camera. What can be the problem? I am using a rear view camera bought from eBay...
  12. I was wondering if anyone has any experience running ARU reloaded on a samsung device (note4 ported xnote rom) to a avic8000nex..? Everything was running peachy till i started the install of my front and rear cameras. To begin i had installed rear camera via factory reverse wire and then started reading in forum to hook up via reverse lights. So i dug into my harness found that one lil green/brown wire and wired it up. All was running A++ till I tried to figure out front camera and eventually i got it going thanks to an individual on this forum but when I shut truck off and cycled ignition back to on, the rear camera was stuck on boot of avic, nothing more till i disconnected batterys. ( I cycled this about 6 times, always rear camera) After doing such all i get is (see pic) from appradio. Furthermore has anyone tried using a samsung all share cast dongle? Obviously its a hdmi in ... Ive tried and avic will not recognize it what so ever... It would be ever so nice to be able to drop the phone between the seats (forget about it) and still be able to access it ... till it obviously dies which wouldnt be too long after such considering dlna eats battery like no tomorrow!... Freedom of wires! Hopefully someone has played with this! *cheers*
  13. I just had my 8000 NEX installed yesterday into my 2011 BMW 335d. When the car is off, selecting reverse turns the camera on exactly as has happened in all of the AVIC units that I installed into my 2010 Jetta TDI Cup Edition. Once the vehicle has started, it will engage the camera the first time I put it in reverse, but never again until I shut the whole car down and turn it on while in ACC mode. The voltage is just under 12v when the vehicle is off (and the camera activates as it should), but when the car is on, the voltage goes to 12.6v and the head unit seems to pretend that the trigger doesn't exist. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm thinking of soldering together a TI voltage regulator to add in to keep the voltage the same when the car is off and on, but will this solve my problem? Is there a simpler solution any of you fine folks have come up with?
  14. Hello all, Having trouble with the backup cam. When shifting to reverse, the screen switches to the backup screen fine...then the darn Caution image may be reversed pops up and blacks out the camera. Annoying. Cant figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Camera Settings

    How do you set up the rear view camera? I have the 8000. I purchased this camera off Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AU4F74K/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Red wire is getting 12V DC (checked with multimeter) Black wire is grounded (has continuity to black wire on radio) Yellow video jack is plugged into camera input on radio, but I'm not getting any video. Tried two different RCA cables (both 75 ohms) The unit switches to the camera when in reverse but all black display. I tried ground and positive for camera polarity, neither worked. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  16. Hi, After hours of trawling the web and no further forward, I though I'd try here How to you enable the speed cameras to display on the screen? I've downloaded a file and put it on my Micro SD card, confirmed the installation of 'blackspot' files but cannot see anything showing POI's for Speed Camera I'm in the UK if that helps anyone? Thanks folks! Damo
  17. x850BT Backup Cam problems

    Guys, Just bought an 08 350z Enthusiast (non Bose) and doing my first mod. My first project is a Head unit replacement and i've chosen the Pioneer avic-x850bt. I have attempted to install the $20 ebay cam found that some of the other guys have put in. http://www.ebay.com/itm/250872048016...84.m1439.l2649 I have successfully tapped into the Reverse wire and ground and run the video cable up through the center console. I believe there is a problem with the HU recognizing the camera and here are a few things that I've done to try get it to work: -Run a separate RCA cable to verify it isn't the cable - No Luck -Unhook the video cable from the HU and connect it to a TV and it is in fact sending the signal and comes up on the TV every time. -Run a separate 16 gauge wire from the HU's purple Rear Cam Signal wire back to the Reverse wire in the trunk (so both cam power and HU wire are connected to Reverse wire) -Tried the "Battery" and "Ground" polarity settings in the HU menu for backup cam settings - no luck -Tried to connect RCA to AV1 input instead of backup cam input with no luck on AV1 -Tried disconnecting the bypass that I had setup to make sure everything was "Stock" So far I've only got the video to display on the HU 1 time so I know it is possible but even then it worked for 1 sec when I shifted to reverse and then put in neutral and shifted back and no luck the next time (and no changes). I have gotten the Black screen at startup many times as others have but can't seem to get the x850BT to recognize the camera consistantly. Does anyone have any other suggestions to try so I can put this thing back together and start driving it again. Or does this appear to be a software issue with the 850bt? Thanks Ryan
  18. Hello people! I just registered due to a problem with my Avic F900BT. Generally pleased with the unit and havent had any major problems with it. Until i decided to install a rear-view camera. I got a simple wired camera and had it installed. Seemed to work for a day, but then it wouldnt switch to the camera view when i put it in reverse. Turns out the reverse gear valve/switch of the car had issues. So i changed it. Now what happens is that the unit always stays with the black screen with the notice about rear view images could be reversed. It works when i go to reverse, but i cant get into any menu of the unit at all. Sometimes i have managed to press "menu" or "map" and it shows the start up disclaimer, i can press "ok" and go into the menu. But 99% of the time its just stuck on that screen. Today i pressed "Map" for a few seconds and it got me into my map and menu, but i obviously something is wrong, i shouldnt have to do this all the time. Any ideas? I cant say much about the wiring cause the car electrician did the connection, but we checked it a second time in case there was some mistake. Also i think that if it was some wire, it wouldnt work at all, not only sometimes. Is there a camera compatibility issue with this unit? My firmware and unit version is : Map Version : 02.000600 Version : 3.021000 Its a UK unit. Thanks for any help !

  20. I have an AVH-P8400BH installed in a 2008 Honda Civic EX Sedan. I have a cheap backup camera installed. I have the power for the camera wired to one of the reverse lights. I also have the trigger from the Head Unit wired to that reverse light. When I put the car in reverse, the head unit doesn't always switch to the backup camera view. I'm trying to determine if it's an issue with the Head Unit or with the camera/wiring. It seems to do it more when the car's been sitting in the sun all day, but sometimes it works after sitting and the sun and sometimes it doesn't work first thing in the morning. Has anyone else had issues like this? Is this more likely a Head Unit issue or the camera/wiring issue?
  21. So i will be getting my appradio in two days. So my question is does anyone know if the wire for the reverse lights to run the rear camera is just a 12 volt power led. So when the power comes on the lights the camera comes on. My idea is to add a front camera as well. So if the camera is only activated by the wire getting just power from the rear lights. Then i can add a video switch to control two or more video inputs. For exsample if i bought this http://www.qualitymobilevideo.com/avs200.html and added a 3 way switch running the power from say a cig lighter. I should be able to flip the switch from camera to camera with the 3rd switch being a off switch. This way i can just turn on what ever camera i want at anytime. Can someone confirm this for me. Everything i have read seems like this would be able to work. I also seen a 4 way spliter that will allow up to four videos feeds on one screen. Also thinking with this idea you can also add any video RCA input. Thanks for any help
  22. Hi, I have an Avic HD3 and am trying to get a camera database for it. I realise that teleatlas who were bought over by tomtom used to do one but stopped circa 2008. I know that the F series has a up and running current one. I was just wondering how different the files were on the F series to the HD3. I have found out that both files with the database of the cameras are called orbis.dat. Is there anybody that can help shed a bit more light on the mater or point me in the right direction? Could somebody share the files from the camera database of the F series with me preferably the uk ones, so I can actually see if it can be converted or not? Doesn't matter how old they are. Its for comparison purposes. I did e-mail tomtom but they referred me to pioneer who weren't very helpful. Thanks.
  23. Hi, I found a reverse camera lying around in my house that wasn't being used so I decided to try and hook it up to my d3. The camera was made to be hooked up to a small monitor that it came with, which I don't want to use obviously. The only issue is that the camera has a red wire for power, black for ground then a 3.5mm headphone jack which was supposed to be used to connect the camera to the monitor in the corresponding 3.5mm jack. The d3 reverse camera input jack is an rca plug. I'm just wondering if it would work to just get a 3.5mm to rca adapter and hook that up or if I'd have to do any other wiring? Thanks.
  24. I can't seem to find any info on this anywhere online. I hooked a brand new ND-BC5 rearview camera to the appradio and every time I click the camera "on" by manually pressing the button, it won't go off. Not after the car is shut off, even if for more than a day, and is restarted, it always comes back on to the camera mode. Makes the radio and everything else useless and I have to do a hard restart, resetting all my stuff. Pioneer claims they have never heard of such a problem. Said it wasn't cutting off because I hadn't hooked up the pink reverse line. I told them I didn't care about it coming on when I went in reverse, I just wanted to be able to turn it on and off as I please, which is how it is advertised. I don't even know what wire I would tie into? I've done all the work and I'm not going to pay $80 for Best Buy to hook up 1 wire that shouldn't have anything to do with the other part working. Has anyone heard of this problem? BTW I'm running version 2.22 if that has any bearing on things.
  25. Okay so i am Brand new to this forum, and it has been incredibly helpful so far. But finally i am stumped. I got my reverse camera in the other day and installed it exactly how i am suppose to. Oh by the way, i have an AVIC-Z130BT The hot wire is run to a constant 12V The ground wire is Grounded properly The video cable is run to the rearview camera plug (the brown one) And then there is a wire that turns to a hot 12V when the truck is in reverse, well this wire is run to the back of the unit to the reverse gear signal input. Butttt it won't work? I have checked EVERYTHING with a meter and it reads perfect, and the unit settings are correct too. The camera is turned on and i have tried both ground and battery settings. I don't get why it won't work. now i can plug the camera video cable into the camera input and select it from the scroll menu and it works fine, but i want it to work where i can shift in reverse and it come on automatically. Please tell me what is wrong and how i can fix it. Thank you so much. Tyler
