After changing cars and not having the time to install the 650GW, someone felt it was suitable to swipe the rear quarter and drive off, leaving me with a 500€ excess and a loss of 20% in bonus.
Now installing the cameras and the Power magic box was working on Saturday but Sunday nothing was happening. Unplugged it and plugged the camera directly into the cigar socket and it was working normally.
Been messing around with fuses for about 3 hours with no joy.
Connected both cameras up and stuck the to relevant screens, only now to find the rear camera isn't working at all.

Is this a common problem? The power magic pro is a 'relatively' cheap replacement but the rear camera probably not, and especially as it's a discontinued line.

Anyone got suggestions on causes or fixes`?

Appreciated

So finally got around to this. Went and bought a new power magic pro. with an idea to switch over the units and then return it. Plugged in the new unit and it powered up straight away. So swapped it back with the old unit which also powered up.

the cable is also fixed. where it plugs into the front camera, the centre strand was bent and not going into it's slot, now straightened and all working.

Next up is to have the camera connected to a wifi dongle (which it currently is) but keep the connection once the car is turned off.
