when i turn the power button on, the screen will flash like its trying to come on, but just stays black
asked by: sam
The monitor on the Peak Performance Wireless Back-Up Camera With Monitor, part # PK015737, will only display an image when the vehicle is in reverse. The power cable going to the transmitter should be tapped into the reverse light circuit meaning it will only send a signal to the monitor once the vehicle is shifted into reverse.
If the monitor stays black when the vehicle is in reverse, then there may be some other issues involved. You can try to relocate the transmitter and verify the power cable or camera cable coming from the transmitter are not pinched at any point. While you are troubleshooting the wires I would recommend checking the ground connection and the connection to the reverse light circuit.
