Sorry if it's already occurred to you, but make sure the hatch is completely closed and latched.

If the hatch isn't closed fully...the screen will go black but there is an icon in the middle of this black screen indicating this.

Hello Everyone! I am new to this forum, new to EV’s and thanks to the posters here have solved my first problem. Actually it’s the first of two problems but at least this one is solved.

The reverse camera in our 2-week old car just suddenly stopped working. I couldn’t figure out what was going on as I had a black screen with a car icon in the middle.

Luckily someone here suggested checking the rear hatch. Thank you!!! I was not looking forward to telling my wife the one system she wanted was not working. Went to the garage, pulled on the was ajar. Closed same, camera now works. Thanks a million for the ez fix.

Now if I can just get the Connected Drive apps to will be good.
