Rear camera seems to work only sometimes. It gives me a blue screen but when I press on the physical camera it sometimes works again. If it works the image is not very good. Anybody else with the same problem or even better with a solution? Changing the camera maybe or is it a software issue?

If the camera was disconnected, it would show a blue screen. Since you've gotten it to work by pressing on or moving the camera, I'd guess on a loose connection at the camera itself. Check the bumper wiring harness for a loose connector or a backed out pin.

As far as software you can check that yourself .I have yet to see a bad camera or a loose connection .

Camera works fine, good view but I would like to have those guiding lines that are linked to the steering wheel....

Just lost the camera connection today, and the compass (!), aint that weird?
When in "R" position the screen remains normal except there is no heading (North, South etc).

Rear camera and navigation system "lost"

Check if you have navigation working.
I know this is an old thread, but the above just happened to me -- when in reverse, the back up camera does not come on and the navigation system is also not working. Ok Harleyguy, you obviously have an idea of what this is...please share.:huh:

Have you had 520 software installed lately or any software done?

I have not had any software installed lately. I believe I have 520 installed. But definitely not recently and for sure not 530 or 535. Since Jomak is also in Atlanta, maybe it is a local gremlin at work. Let's hope it isn't the CIU -- I'm already on my second one.

I just introduced myself as a new owner and that my car had some issues... This is one of them. The backup camera doesn't work - its a green screen that comes up. Nav and compass also do not work. AFAIK it is running 520.
When I bought the car I got a "we owe" for some harness and new ECM. I have part numbers but not sure if all of this is related.

This is the sign of a faulty CIU (Central Infotainment Unit). It's possible a re-flash of it's memory by a CSP with a Karma Laptop might correct it. Or, it could be a $1200 part to replace the little computer in the dash. I just had the latter done to mine last month. Same symptoms ... assuming your car also won't remember the radio stations between starts.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but get it fixed and you'll LOVE your car! Good luck!
