If your already powering the camera from a clean 12v like the rear wiper
Then use pin 87 for the trigger to the stereo

@r1lea, your last picture is the same as my diagram in my first post I think mate. Unless I’ve missed something?
Just seen your last post mate. I’ll swap my camera power feed to pin 87 in the morning

I’m that case it’s possible you have a camera issue or the rca cable

Have you tried plugging the camer directly into the back of the stereo and giving it a clean 12v to test if pic comes up

The camera or rca cable has sprung to mind mate. I’m going to test the rca cable for continuity tomorrow.
I haven’t tried to give the camera a 12v feed from the stereo as I don’t know how

No not power from the stereo, I mean plug the camera rca direct into the stereo

Power it from anywhere, even from jump leads straight from the battery etc

Sorry

Yes I’ve got the RCA leads direct from camera to stereo. 12v feed is coming from ignition live on fuse box so that’s a clean feed I believe.

I mean rule out the rca extension lead and plug the rca plug on the camera directly into the stereo “without the long rca lead “

All the clever caddy people are miles away!
Not to worry mate. I’ll get it figured out.....and if I don’t, my wife’s cousin is an auto spark!
On the plus side, I wanted this to be a learning curve and it sure is that
