Someone just posted about this about a week ago on the forum here.Anyone else have the rear camera stop working when the car is in reverse?
Oh wow, did not expect to see this with the Cadenza too. I though this was isolated to just my K900. This is the exact issue I'm currently dealing with. Kia did an update on our K900 and it did not fix the issue.Only issue I have is starting the car, going into reverse quickly and the screen will flash to black and then flash back to rear view. This does cause a problem and I have to slow down or stop for a moment while the screen comes back. I think it is still booting up because it only happens when I do it quickly after starting up.

Yeah this is a big deal if it is happening on the Cadenza's & the K900's.I have the issue with flashing too. It usually has no guide lines when I first hit reverse. When it comes back the second time, the lines are there and video adjusted for better quality in darkness.
That actually sounds like it could be the cause. Regardless that should not be happening. I pay a lot of money for my Kia and it is a safety issue if I began backing up and the screen blacks out for a few seconds.Mine does it as well. I attribute the behavior to how the head unit operates. I think the logic is this:
1. Upon start-up, the head unit boots. Boot sequence is complete once warning screen appears.
2. If put into reverse before warning screen appears (head unit is booted), reverse camera signal to the headunit is bypassed, and sent directly to the monitor (no guidelines).
3. Once headunit is booted, signal is passed through the headunit (that's why it goes momentarily black, and guidelines appear).
I've come to expect this behavior and plan my back-ups accordingly.
You may have misunderstood the issue I'm experiencing, however your response is not accurate. I am very familiar with the different features of the K900 as it is my car and I consider myself pretty tech savvy when it comes to understanding the many neat & technologically advanced features it comes with. No vehicle should automatically activate the air conditioning system on any circumstances unless it is set to automatic. The AC on my vehicle is also not being activated, only the vents are opening up as if someone reached up and turned the recirculation button off.The issue about the AC K5 is bringing up sounds more like the auto-dehumidifier doing its job. There is a sensor on the windshield behind the rearview mirror which constantly monitors the interior humidity level and will activate the AC and external air to reduce humidity and chance of the windshield foggings not a very well documented feature of the Cadenza, but I'd bet money that's a feature of the K900 too and it's working just as designed.
Thank you for your response, I apologize for sounding a little defensive. Yesterday was a bit rough of a day for us at the shop. This sounds like it does make sense, definitely not the issue I'm experiencing but again thank you for your posting it.Totally hear ya, K5. What you were mentioning sounded like the progressive steps the Cadenza system tries to use for auto defogging - 1) activate outside air position, 2) blow air towards windshield, 3) increase air flow to windshield, 4) activate a/c, 5) max a/c. The manual mentions that if the user tries to override the auto defog it will override manual operation. Not trying to challenge your knowledge. Just didn't realize some of the back story. And I agree, if everything is set off, the logic shouldn't even be running.
