    Lilliput 809GL does not like my backup camera

    Ok I have done research to death on this topic and would loves some advice as I cant find anything that has helped. I have a Lilliput 809GL-80NP/C/T display and it works great when connected to my carpc, but when I plug in a backup camera it comes on for 1 second and flickers then goes black, the screen then times out ant auto powers off. i have tried all available inputs, IE: yellow and Red inputs, disconnecting all inputs except for the camera, Checked the voltage of both the monitor and camera, tried different power sources. This is the second backup camera I have tried, (the last one was a different brand) and had the same results. I have confirmed the cameras work on a television and the monitor as I said works fine with my carpc. Please help!

    are you trying this by enabling the reverse wire, or by manually switching to the camera input?

    I have tried it hooked up to my amp, brake light, and my cig lighter. All three reporting 13.24V clean with a +2 flux when accelerating, well within the cameras tolerance. If it helps, this is the camera I just got...

    Is it possible that the Lili just cant handle the camera?

    that doesn't answer my question though

    you already said that you verified the camera works, with different 2 cameras, and you also connected them to a standard TV--that rules out a defective camera. you then said that you tried multiple points for voltage-- so that partially rules out the car being a issue(there could be something else on this side, but that would become more evident later on).


    so to try to reword my question-- have you tried manually changing the lilliput to the AV2 input, and getting it to display the image?

    there are still 2 variables that need to be worked out:

    first- if the video input works at all--hence the first question. another way to test this is to try a different non-camera device, like a dvd player, or portable video player.

    second, if the reverse trigger wire works. this is why i asked that the input be switched manually-- it eliminates the automatic triggering, that could be the original problem..

    Sorry I didn't fully understand. Lol. I tried running the camera from the yellow and red inputs, and yes I have tried manually switching. I have not however verified another device through the inputs. I will try that. I am also going to post a vid of what it does to (I hope) clear up any other questions. I also ran the cam off the psu on my carpc, and verified a clean 12.1v off it with my meter with zero flux from acceleration or accessories running. So, I feel pretty good about it not being a power source issue, but I am not going to rule anything out yet...
