    I have a reversing camera fitted to the number plate, feeding through to a 7" TFT monitor in the cab.
    My problem is that the extremely useful grid lines, which previously appeared on the screen have disappeared !
    I am not aware of changing anything, although the van has just been in for a new cambelt kit. (It was ok before it went in - not after I collected it).

    The screen has several buttons, including one for menu. No matter which buttons I press, nothing comes up on the screen.

    Any advice gratefully received !

    Some systems only show the grid lines when reverse gear is selected and not when camera is used just as a rear view device

    could be the reverse light switch wire has been accidently pulled off during belt change if it ran anywhere near the belt cover area.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear ....

    The camera works fine when I put it into reverse, with the monitor showing the rear view, except the grid lines which used to be on the screen as well have gone !

    I would have thought it must be a feature/option accessed through the on screen menu.

    Perhaps the bit of chicken wire on the camera has fallen off :BigGrin:

    On my system the reversing guide line 'dots' were as far as I can remember, printed on the monitor glass.

    you haven't been cleaning it and wiped them off by accident ?
