Rear view monitor & backup camera

I have a Savv brand rear view mirror monitor model #LBM-430BT as well as a Performance Technique rear view license plate frame with camera, model ICBM-CAM.

The rearview mirror has a 12v fused power wire, a black ground wire, and a pair of video In rca cables. The license plate camera only has 4 wires: red, black, yellow, & white.

I am wondering if I'm missing something to install this as I received what is pictured only. Any ideas? My head unit does not have video rca's, but I don't see why that would make a difference.






94' 9C1 20" Lexani Krystals or 14" Chrome & Gold Daytons depending on my mood, Intrax springs, belltech shocks, Moog suspension, body bushings, stealth bolt, Smoothie bumpers, 91 tails, chrome pillars, K&N Intake, Fuel Rail Covers, New interior, custom grill, shaved, powdercoated parts, and so on..

Well I've had no success. Not sure if I should buy a new camera or not. I seen this camer/monitor working in my co-workers car before it was removed due to him trading in the car. I spliced a yellow rca cable to connect to 2 of the 4 wires coming from the camera (rca's cable end was cut off) and tried all possible connections. The camera's infrared lights come on, the map lights on the rearview come on, but the monitor never turns on.

Which wires from the camera did you splice the rca cable to?

The center conductor of the rca should go to the yellow wire which is normally standard for video. The shield of the rca cable would tie to the camera's black negative lead which should also be grounded somewhere.

Center wire on the rca to the yellow and the shield wire that wraps around it to the black wire from the rearview camera also grounded to the battery. The rearview screen never turned on.

Only ground the shield to one place/end. You can get current flowing through the shielding if the potential of the grounds are different.

Good on the video. What about the white wire? That may need to connect to a switched source like the backup lights. That might turn on the video output with would then make the mirror turn on.

The white wire off the camera I ran to 12v and still nothing.

I've been testing it on a bench with a battery rather than keep taking things on the car apart.
