Sometimes the camera output doesn't have enough current to turn on certain camera modules. Subaru had a few different camera manufacturers- clarion and fuji heavy industries. The fuji cameras tend to work fine with the harness configured as is, but the clarion camera requires more current. To fix this:

De-pin or cut the blue/yellow wire from the green plug on the maestro. Populate wires in pins 2 and 4 on the RR's black 18-pin harness, tie them together, and hook them to the blue/yellow to power the camera. To do this, you can use the extra 18 pin harness that came in the RR box, and de-pin some wires from that plug. The image shown below is wire side, FYI.

I seem to be having this exact issue on my 2011 Outback, everything else works great just no backup camera image on the 4200 (still shows on the mirror though). I just registered to try to find this solution so I can’t see this image, can you send it to me?

Thanks so much, I’ve done installs in a bunch of cars this was by FAR the easiest.

If you have the image on the mirror you have to grab the two video signal wires up at the mirror and feed them down to the radio with a RCA cable

That makes sense, do you happen to know the color on those two signal wires? It's not 100% clear to me from the FSM.

Thanks!

Sorry i have no info on Forester with the camera in the mirror. It seems it may just be a game of testing the wires with a meter to locate them up at the mirror. When you find them please share the info here, Thanks.

Not at all! There is a 1 year warranty- you can either exchange the RR through the dealer where you purchased it and get a replacement, or wire the camera up to 12 volts. I'm just making sure you know all your options.
Hm, okay. So I finally was able to get the RR replaced (life stuff getting in the way of fixing this, heh) and I left the wiring the same (re-read the post and made sure I connected things together correctly) and took another few pictures to confirm (here: https://imgur.com/a/uauphQZ) and it still is just showing a black screen when I put it in reverse.

Thoughts?

Are you getting 5-6 volts out of the RR on pins 2 and 4? did you try what Dara suggested earlier and connect accessory 12 volts to the camera power going to the camera instead?

I will check. on the voltage.

If not, which wires are going to be going to the 12v accessory (yellow, right?)?

Afternoon wighty!!

Did you ever get this resolved as I am having the same issue on my 2011 Forester, but with a Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX.

Thanks...Jeffrey...

Zach,

The same issue that "wighty" was/is having, the backup camera is not working on my 2011 Forester. I've replaced the Subaru Clarion radio with a Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX radio. I believe everything is connected as I was on the phone with Maestro support when I installed the radio, but the steering wheel controls didn't work. They work now once I was able to re-flash the firmware. They told me what wires I needed to connect in order to use the camera that is above the license plate with my radio, but I didn't have time to continue the call!! When the car is put in reverse I get a message the image from the back-up camera is reversed

Did you already try what Dara mentions in her earlier post? The connector view can be seen in the original post, earlier in this thread
