Was that how it failed on yours? I'm just trying to narrow down if it's the camera, the wiring, or something else. Thanks
Hey sorry guys i have been very busy with work and now dealing with my car needing a jump to start...

Lowerfredrick: My issue was when going into reverse the screen would trigger to the reverse cam with the yellow lines/black screen, would never turn on video.. I triple checked all my wiring and made sure it was EXACTLY the way stubbie has shown.

I replaced my camera 2 or 3 times, and re-wired/replaced my relay as well. I performed the test that stubbie also says where you can use the camera in wire directly to the back of the unit.

My issue was solved overall being a faulty camera, i did also connect the 2 previous cameras and use it on a TV and it still didnt show video, confirming the 2 previous cameras were dead.

I would triple check your wiring, try your camera on a TV or using the camera-in port on the headunit... If you have a volt meter you can test the power wire to the camera to see if it is getting voltage too...
