Default Back up camera help

I know this is a long shot but what the hell.

i have a Sony radio in my 1500 (Im sure the previous owner installed). The radio has a backup camera that suddenly stopped working. Few days ago it was ok but it was flickering. Now I just get a blank screen. I've tried to mess with the settings, but sometimes I get a "no video input" errror message. I was going to call
somy but I have no idea what the model even is. There are no markings anywhere.

any ideas? Thoughts?

Check for loose or broken wires.?
Check ground connection?
Same troubleshooting you'd do with a boat?
Get a Ford?
burn the previous owners house down?

Pull the head unit check the wires. Could have come loose. Also trace the wire from the camera end and look for damage.

Same exact thing happened with mine, I put a cheap aftermarket camera on my Tahoe and several months later the image would start flickering and now I just get 'no input'. It was a PITA to install so I can't be bothered to re-trace everything and have given up on it. I really only need it to line up my trailer hitch twice a year so it's not a big deal.

Holy crap. My commute to work is going to get longer if I have to drive to Kent Washington to get a coffee every day.
