  • lilliput eby701 flashing off then on

    I recently added a backup camera to my setup, and my lilliput from mo-co-so with the auto switch feature switches perfectly. I wired the trailer hitch wiring's reverse light wire directly to my camera's positive and the green wire on the back of the monitor, in parallel with this wire. My problem now is, that I noticed occassionally when i press my brakes that the monitor will flash black and "PC" will show in the corner, as if it momentarily wants to switch off or switch inputs. It's not the same as if i pull the power to the monitor which produces a much longer delay, I thought it might be a power issue so i gave this a try to rule it out. it seems more like the switching of inputs. The monitor is currently being powered by the 12v lighter socket.
    The other thing that is throwing me off is that it usually seems to happen when i press the brakes. could it be a ground issue? it's grounded only at the camera end, to the frame.

    hi
    iam about to wire mine too and talked to chis from the mo-co-so and he gave me some tips to do it but really did not try it yet because i did not really understand what was he saying . that is what he tald me if that helps.

    power your camera, plug it in to one of the yellow RCA jacks, put 12v to the green wire of the monitor, if you get the camera image you know you have RCA #2, if not you just need to switch. Run a wire between the reverse brake light bulb + and the green line on the monitor.

      on mine the red rca is video 2. And my setup switches and works fine, aside from the fact the when i'm not in reverse and i press the brake, it want's to switch but it's not recieving 12v on the wire or any video input so it automatically switches back to pc.

        It has something to do with the way you have the reverse wire connected. Did you try connecting it to your reverse brake light bulb not the trailer wiring?

          hi Thunderbay
          I tried mine today but did not even switch this is how I connected it :
          powered the screen from my M4 ATX , connected a wire comming straight from my reverse light bulb to the green wire on the back of the screen . and powered my back up camera from a reverse buld + 12 .and ground.
          if u got urs working plz tell me how is ur wiring . I spent hours searching but no luck .
          thanx

            work on 1 thing at a time. The monitor will auto switch with or w/o a camera connected. Just make sure you have the + side of the reverse bulb. Dont worry about the camera until you get it sorted out.

                      If you are powering the monitor from the PSU plug in the cigarette lighter power adapter and stick the green wire inside of the barrel plug to see if the monitor will switch

                          Hi Chris, I haven't tried connecting to the brake light wire, just the trailer wiring as you specified. I was hoping not to cut into any more of my factory wiring. but if you think this could be a route to my problem then i may have to. Could it also be possible that the lighter outlet isn't producing a clean enough signal? and the brake application distorts the output? i'm wondering if using my transformer or powering the monitor off the acc line (which is run off my hvac fuse like I discussed with you before), or even powering it with my M2 would help?
