Hey, I have a 2008 Outback 3.0, JDM, RHD. Owned since 2019.
This particular car has OEM xenon headlights, reversing camera, flappy paddle shifters, stereo with a HDD, multi-function touch screen display with japanese sat-nav, japanese TV tuner etc. Most of this you don't see in many 3rd gen outbacks, so I have trouble finding parts and knowledge for it, especially it being JDM. Hoping someone here might be able to help
My main problem is the reversing camera stopped working a couple months ago. Now the screen just goes black, with the guide lines moved to the right and down a bit which is kinda strange.
We assumed it was just a faulty camera - I found the part number but cannot source a replacement even from subaru, seems they stopped selling them some time ago.
We took it to a shop that normally installs/fixes this kind of stuff said they had aftermarket cameras that will work, but they plugged in a few different cameras and none of them worked. They said they hadn't seen one with this OEM stereo unit before and it must have been a very high spec model for the time. Unsure if there's anything special about the camera or maybe the head unit that processes the video signal has a fault?
