I bought this kit months ago, finally installed it a few weeks ago. Ran the wires and installed as the instructions said:
Ran into the first problem, ECS pinned the reverse signal connector wrong . Easy fix just switch the 2 wires in the connector and fixed
Coded the RNS-510 for the reverse camera and success!
Camera opened when reverse was engaged and got a picture
The next day, I give it another test before reinstalling the trim...no picture . Camera opens, RNS shows the reverse screen but no image. I check all connections, recode and reset the RNS, still nothing. Gotta be a bad coaxial, ordered a new one, same problem .
Contacted ECS and told them about the problem. They won't send me a new camera badge because I modified the harness? . So because I fixed the mistake in their own harness, I somehow messed up the camera by making it work correctly? Oh but they did send me a new harness with the same problem as the original . Anyone here with this kit having the same problem?

So it is not the unit as we now come to find out, since we sent a new one out - please recheck wiring, fuses, grounds, ect with the install. If you are still having issues after this please check with your local auto shop for more help.
i had this issue with an aftermarket headunit in my old car. when i first installed it the screen worked great but the 2nd day i tried to watch a movie and nothing. the screen came up and i could even hear the sounds of the dvd main screen going through the speakers, but no actual picture. i always assumed it was a blown fuse or something like that but i never actually got it fixed. i'd definitely check wiring/fuses first with relation to the headunit.
have you done anything to it to prevent battery drain?
I changed my oil with diluted KY Jelly and I really like it. Drove it 3 miles no problem yet. Highly recommend it.
