Default Back-up Monitor 83 FC Duel Function

Congratulations to all involved with the new and improved site. It looks great!

Thanks for your efforts in supporting these very cool machines!

" Scott,is the backup monitor also the TV ?
When you turn the ignition key on does the screen go to TV?
i remember a weird problem i had on an 84pt40 that sounds
like yours,mine the TV and the backup camera shared a monitor,and
there was a relay that was bad. No need to go into the deatails if yours is not a dual function monitor.

The above is from an earlier post. I do have the duel function system. The TV works fine but when the camera is engaged there is no image. It appears as a blank gray screen. Its not just snow noise which makes me wonder if this might be a simple fix. The connections at the camera end appear to be fine.

I would appreciate any suggestions you may have on how to trouble shoot. Can you tell me more about the relay issue alluded to above.

Thanks- NH Bill

in the TV control box above the drives head theres a small "ice cube" relay,on the coach i worked on that relay has a loose pin and sometimes the camera would work and sometimes not.
BB did not have the relay and i got it from an electronics store (not to be confused with radio shack!)
i replaced the relay and all is well.

Default Duel function TV - Backup Monitor

Randy,

I will check this. I have a Hitachi TV. and the controls are directly above the drivers head behind an overhead compartment door (this is the location you are referring to correct?). Do you recall if the unit you worked on was also Hitachi?

Thanks - NH Bill 1983 FC 35 "Coach"
