System had been updated several months ago. I tried running update again but system will not let me.
GPS and everything else displays just fine.
Replaced the camera and I get the same flashing multi color display when in reverse.
All other fuses check out and I have backup lights.
Any ideas?

Welcome to the Forum Charlie. :wave:
Am I right in thinking that the camera you replaced had the same problem? This wouldn't be caused by a fuse. Did you have the new camera programmed to the vehicle? I doubt that that would be the issue but it is required when a camera is replaced. Did you get the correct replacement unit?

Thank you for the Welcome.
Have been a lurker for a long while.
Ordered the camera from an online dealer not ebay.
Went by part number.
Wouldn’t something change if I changed out the camera and that was the issue? An error message of some type?
No wrecks, no flooding, no work done just started doing what you see.

Usually there is a message that comes up to see the dealer if there is a problem. I'm not sure which screen it pops up on. It could be the screen that you posted in which case good luck reading it.
