Backup Camera too dark all of a sudden

Hey Guys,

so I am having trouble with the backup camera. The image itself is fine, it's just WAY too dark all of a sudden. The two knobs on the left hand side of the steering wheel have no effect.

Any hints and tips?

Thanks!

FWIW : Over time my camera darkened a bit. It finally failed outright and we were pleased with how bright the new image was.

Hmm the cheapest one I was able to find was 145USD plus shipping.

Do you know if this might simply be a connection problem? a corroded wire of sorts?

I happen to have one brand new/never used. I bought it not realizing I needed a full retrofit kit for my particular 300. What's it worth?

I had one go bad on my 2011. Started to fail intermittently, then it quit altogether. I thought for a moment it might have been just a loose connection, but apparently this is a common failure. The trunk lid getting open and shut so many times probably causes to much shock, leading to a failure of the electronics. Mine was covered under warranty but the MSRP is usually around $249, last I looked.
