Wanted: Looking for a dead Sony Backup camera


Recommended Posts

Needing a Sony backup camera for the cable. I think any of the small, 1/4 diameter, cables will do. Cable only; 4 pin female end. Don't need the camera. Wanting to splice my new camera to the old OEM wiring of my 2002 Monaco Windsor.

Thank You for looking!

Glenn

Thanks everyone! Just a cable adapter is 50 + shipping; only to be cut-up....  RV Cams are the larger diameter style. Hoping Stillrunning saved his.

My Sony cam is a working unit (sound too). Hate to cut it up for the cable end.... Maybe I can find an installer with one after a swap-out.

The only one that would work is the Vovager adapter which is basically $50 plus shipping. Then I would cut the end off to splice it onto my new camera....

Thanks; I have looked. In the end I will probably cut the cable off my working camera and trash it. I don't want to but it's either that or hack my OEM wiring in the coach.

I would take 4 pins (maybe from an old pc board, or even solid wire), stick them in the holes, add some hot glue for isolation and rigidity then a little heat shrink around the whole mess.  A lot cheaper than $50.

I find the Sony camera pretty useless. 

Best,

But better than none (for now....)

When done I will have two. One high resolution with the greater field of vision and a second, using the original wiring, looking more downward at the ball area.

Good suggestion of making my own using pins or wire. I will give that more thought!

Here's some more food for thought - use the microphone wire to control a relay to switch between the hi-res and Sony cams.  The trick is finding the right relay switch.  I'm not sure your basic 12V relay would uphold signal integrity . . . thoughts anyone?

Bob,

That's a good idea. If you don't mind I'll include it in my write-up of my complete install. For me I'll be using a mic. The HD camera will be on with the ignition and primarily used as a rear view camera with it's own separate fold-down monitor. ( I just can't get used to not having that mirror ) The replacement monitor in the dash will access the hitch view with "parking lines" ; triggered by being in reverse. ( kinda useless except for distance and objects )

Here's the mount so far. The lower camera pivots up & down within it's own mounting housing. Cheap but functional.

This is posted in the classified so I will leave this up thru the weekend then mark as sold? I don't want to violate an rules....

On our 2005 Signature there is a proprietary Sony 6-Pin connector that looks like it is an S-Video or MiniDIN, but it isn’t.

RVCams and Tadi Brothers both have adapter cables for that Sony connector. I think that is the cheapest way.

I have thought about putting a smaller nozzle on my 3 D printer to see if I could print one, but will probably buy the connectors that the companies above have had built.

Gotta love Sony.... Just removed the cable from my working camera. Did a pin-out. Four wires; 1 Black, 1 Blue, 2 white. Good grief! Why couldn't they use yellow for video signal like almost everyone else??? Soooo Black is ground. Blue must be power. White is sound & the other White is video.

My 4 pin cable is small; 1/4 diameter. I'll probably end up trashing a working b&w camera. Thanks for that info! Glenn

Jelly bean I can’t the whole cable out so I will have to cut it off about a foot or two from connector. Here is pic of connector:

 

 

 

Thank You for sending the cable! It will make completing my "Duel Camera" project MUCH easier!
