I just bought a 2016 MDX, Tech and AWP model. The back up camera seems blurry to me. It looks as if someone left some protective film on it when it was shipped. I've checked and cleaned the camera. I've got three other vehicles with back up cameras. None of them are as blurry as this. Is...
Thanks S60 - not much in those threads. We have had the car since 2014 and the camera was always fine - just the last 60 days it has gotten worse - it is impossible to see out of - I'm surprised that nobody else has had this issue (mostly cause the dealer said they had the cameras in stock?).
For $600, I’d go back to the old-fashioned way of backing up and, you know, turn my head. For $50 and some work, I’d consider replacing it myself. Is that $50 for OEM? Any YouTube videos on DIY replacement/removal? If it’s easy, I’d just remove and put the camera assy into a bag of rice for a couple days, as it sounds like it’s got moisture inside behind the lens. Could save some $$ but the moisture will probably come back if you don’t find where it came in and seal it properly.
someone here replaced the camera about a year ago and discovered that the issue is the processor in the head unit. The camera lens is not the weak link. My suggestion is change the darkness / density to see if that helps. Also if you lose a backup light at night that really makes it hard to see. People got the most bang for the buck improving their backup lights.
I have had problems with moisture getting inside the lens on my RV side and rearview cameras. Makes the image very foggy. Take a close look at yours and see if there is any sign of condensation. You might also want to heat up the camera with a hair dryer to try and dry it out as a test.
So, I have the new OEM camera in my possession. I now need to find the instructions on changing that thing out. That's the problem with Acuras - they don't break enough that there are instructions out there for things like this! Of note, the camera was awesome for the first 6 years of ownership - it now is just shot. So if anyone can point me to the how to video, that would be great
