Expert Reply:

Sounds like you really checked everything and it's still not working. If you can verify that the monitor has power and ground and the camera is getting the reverse light circuit and the monitor is STILL not coming on then the problem could then be the transmitter wire that runs from the camera to the monitor. You might check to make sure it's making a solid connection.

If that's not it the monitor is most likely damaged.
