Rear view camera fail.  I get a "Camera not available" message on my info screen every

Dealer says they need to "explore" for nearly 300 bucks to check out the fiber optics.

could be a bad cable try removing your trunk inside cover and checking hte wires your self.

Did they figure out the roots cause. Same thing is happening to my vehicle.

No, no corrective action yet. Car is going in for service tonight, might have more news tomorrow. I removed the trunk lining and there was no visible defect, fyi. Best guess from the techs right now is a broken fiber-optic cable, which is $$$ to repair due to the labor hours in replacing it.

I have the same problem with my 2012 CC, the reverse camera don't work - it shows on the screen that "it is not available"- any solutions pls?

there has been a lot of controversy about it but i don't really think there has been a solution. i have seen a few posts and some people have literally replaced everything possible and a few times at that. seems there is not really a fix for the issue. The best thing you can do is just keep at them and keep getting them to replace stuff under their warranty.

My car spent 10 days of the past 14 in the dealership and still have the same problem, with that exact message. I have a 2014 Passat with the 6spd manual gearbox, Diesel. And get "Camera Not Available" They told me I was nuts till I had video of it

My name is Stephen, sorry nut sure why it said GURU above... :)

I've seen people talk about this issue before. I had a rental once that would do the same thing. Often shifting the car back into anouther gear other then reverse and then back again toreverse again. I personaly think its an issue with the the shifter switch. I have seen people have this issue before as well and replace everything from the camera to the wires and even the stereo and not resolve the issue. Try going to the parts department and ask for them to bring up the parts diagram for the camera system and print it out. you can liekly do your own trouble shooting at this point. and make sure the camera is actuly poping open when you put the car in reverse.
