Upside down world (backup camera)

Post by BatCruzer » Sun Jul 31, 2016 8:24 am

Every time I shift into reverse the screen is either filled with lines or most often inverted. Bad camera or something else?

Did you ever figure out the problem?
Mine has been acting up recently it wont show the video feed all the time but will give the sensor warning (beeping). Very intermediate problem.

I have no clue...mine is blank sometimes, scrambled with lines others, inverted mostly (feels like Maverick) so working properly about 25% of the time. I've honestly come to ignore it or laugh as if its entertainment since I've never had a vehicle with a reverse camera before, I'm not missing the function so much. The back-up warning alarm still works and I do like having that since rear visibility isnt the best with the high deck. I would like to know what the issue is though.

Hi,

this is usually a problem of the camera which can not be repaired - you need a new camera + calibration.

Our Ford Taurus 2011 limited started showing an upside down image on the back up camera. Once in a while it will project the correct image, but lately it is stuck in the upside down mode. No freezing temperatures in Southern California, but the weather has been warm. Is this an issue with these cameras. Will I need to have it replaced? Dealer in said they can't give me an appointment until Decemeber! And that would be just for inspection! Help!

There is only 50,000 miles on our Taurus and the camera image is upside down! Is this a recall item?

Nope, only safety related things get recalled (steering, etc).
