So my 2015.5 S60 was at Volvo a few weeks ago for the "Camera Unavailable" issue. Initially, the dealership diagnosed the problem as requiring a software update. For a week or 2, everything appeared fine and then the problem returned. At random intervals (I believe the cold weather might be a motivating factor?. I.E. Short + Moisture?) the Backup Camera fails to initialize. Hitting Camera Prompts an Error: Camera Unavailable. Also, going into reverse fails to engage the camera. Only turning off the vehicle and letting it recycle seems to correct the issue.
While the Dealership has been unable to replicate or fault trace the problem, a new camera has been ordered under the guise that there's some sort of hardware failure taking place. The dealership saw the video I took as evidence of the issue. While Parked... Camera Unavailable if hitting Camera. While in Reverse, Camera fails to Engage.
Has anyone else ever experienced a similar problem? What was the fix? I'll get a new camera in a week as the part is on order.
Here's What Mine is doing. I took screenshots from the video....
A: First Image is Putting Vehicle into Reverse from a Stationary Position and then Attempting to Reverse (No Camera Engages).
B: Second Screen Shot is hitting Camera Button from Stationary. Error Camera Unavailable.
