Instruction manual for 1 & 2 camera systems
CCD 12/24 volt instruction manual
Please read this manual carefully before you attempt installation.
The rear view monitor is to be used when the vehicle is in reverse. Please do not use to watch programs or operate the monitor whilst driving. It may cause an accident because of the distraction.
Do not install the monitor where it may obstruct an air bag device.
Do not attempt to service this product on your own. The monitor does use high voltages. If there are any problems please contact the dealer for advice.
Dropping the unit will cause possible internal failure. Make sure the monitor stand is fixed to a secure location.
The monitor should be situated away from direct sun light, heat, water or moisture.
Make the hole for the camera lead slightly smaller than the internal diameter of the rubber grommet. This is to ensure there is pressure on the cable to prevent leaks. Bare metal should be painted with a suitable rust prevention finish.
When feeding cables through to the monitor be careful not to strain the connectors as they are easily damaged.
When connecting the camera to the control box it is important there is no power to the system. Under some circumstances this can lead to permanent damage to the camera.
- Screen size: 7" new TFT-LCD AU panel
- NTSC/PAL auto-switch over
- Settings can be altered via buttons on monitor or using the IR remote control
- Stand to allow fixing either standing on a surface, in front of a surface or roof mounted.
- Picture can be inverted horizontally or vertically by remote or > button on monitor.
If you have the one camera system then the AV in socket can be used to input a signal from a DVD, TV , SatNav or second camera. With a two camera system then this input does not work.

The 2 four pin sockets are for use with the camera cables. The one marked camera2 (back) is used for the camera you wish to view when reverse is selected. Camera 1 socket is used for a second camera if you have bought the 2 camera system. The 6 pin socket takes the monitor cable.
The power plug will take the power cable. The red wire goes to a 12/24 volt power supply. The black wire goes to the vehicle body (ground) The green wire is normally attached to the reversing light. When power goes to this wire the monitor and camera will turn on and the picture is automatically displayed. On a two camera system it would change channels to show the image from the camera on video input 2. Connecting this wire is optional as the monitor can be turned on and the channel altered using the buttons on the monitor itself. If this wire is attached to a 12/24 volt supply that comes on with the ignition then the camera will automatically come on and display the image on video input 2. This is useful if you wish to use as an always on rear view mirror.
You can change the type of image displayed from mirror image to normal using the two switches marked CAM 1 and CAM 2. THIS ONLY WORKS WITH SHARP CCD CAMERAS. the Sony CCD cameras have this feature disabled in the camera. We can supply cameras fitted with a Sharp CCD.
CAM 1 / CAM 2 out will produce a signal which you can feed into another monitor or mobile digital video recorder. This is useful if you want to set up the system as an accident recorder The switch marked CAM1/CAM2 out has 2 possible modes of operation. With a one camera system if you are using the RCA socket marked VIDEO IN then you can select either this output or the output from the camera 2 (back) input to be the CAM1/CMA2 OUT signal. On a 2 camera system this switch serves no purpose.
On a one camera system the AUDIO IN and VIDEO IN RCA sockets can be used to input a signal which will be displayed on the monitor's AV1 channel. As the monitor does not give sound then the SPEAK socket on it would need to be used. On a 2 camera system the yellow VIDEO IN socket will carry the output from the second camera.
