We have a Sony Backup System consisting of a Model SSC-520AM CCD Black & White Video camera DC 12V, 1.6W Serial No. 12700 and a Black & White Monitor SSM-621AM. A retired electronics tech checked the system and the monitor and cable are both good. The camera isn't putting out a video signal but the audio works. He tested the monitor and cable by hooking up the video output of a DVD player to the cable at the rear of the bus and the monitor received the picture. So he knows the problem is in the camera. Without a schematic he can't diagnose the problem. Does anyone know where we can get a schematic or a generic camera to get the system working again?

Thanks for any help, Sam

Sam Was trying to find you a Manual on line and ran across this. don't know if it has anything to do with your problem but might give them a call. Maybe they will send you a different one that works? Wink

Discontinued..... This cameras has been discontinued by the manufacturer, but we have replacement options..... please see #"SSC530AM-Kit" below or call us to discuss additional options.

Replacement camera for most Sony black/white backup camera systems. It is not compatible with Sony monitor models that end with the letters, "AM" (ex: SSM620AM). It is only compatible with monitor models that end with, "AMR" (ex: SSM721AMR).

Even if your camera's model number exactly matches our camera (SSC530AM), it will not work with monitors that end with "AM". I know that this sounds strange, but trust us -- Sony made different versions of their cameras. Please contact us if you have an "AM" monitor or if you need additional information.

This camera is only compatible with certain Sony b/w systems. It will not work with Sony color systems or with any other make of system.

Hi Dave,

My wife found the same thing. But I can't see spending $200 on a B/W camera when I can get a new 7" color monitor and camera on line for $195 plus shipping. I would get it repaired pretty cheap for labor if I could find a schematic and then whatever part(s) for my existing camera. I also could get just a camera from the same on line vendor for $85 plus shipping. The camera cables would need to be modified to be compatible with my monitor. I also can get a wireless 7" color system locally, if it would work without interference in our bus for $180 plus tax. No big hurry yet, since we will not be going anywhere until near the end of October.

Thanks for trying to help, Sam
