I'm still curious about the wiring. Did you ground a wire on SVXDC harness?

On the camera wiring, there is a black and red wire, did you connect them to backup light power?

You had mentioned an unconnected red wire. I'm not sure which one you left unconnected.
I did ground the wire on the mounting points on the radio just as you did. On the camera wiring I connected the red wire to the reverse bulb's red wire, and I grounded the black wire on the mounting screw.

Regarding the unconnected red wire, there was a small red wire that was on the end of the RCA end (near the head unit). When I connected it to the 12+ power (in conjunction with the reverse light bulb wiring) the head unit displayed the video all the time - even in park.

My suggestion is if you STILL have problems with that camera after exchanging it, I would just buy it through the guy I bought the camera from. Good think it's a cheap camera!
