Back up camera not working

I've had my Commander with MYGIG now for about four months and when I first got it the back up camera came on every time. Time passed and it started to come on randomly or just a black screen. At times it would come on but, the screen would be an odd color or very dim and even flicker on and off.

Currently it doesn't work at all, just a black screen with the "check entire surroundings". I pulled the liftgate cover and the panel the camera is mounted to. All the connections look clean and almost brand new. I pulled the radio and checked the connections, they were all good.

Not sure where to look now. All the threads I've read have nothing in common regarding repairs and or the thread dies off with no real solution. Then there are the threads that end in "I had the dealer fix it" which is zero help.

When I originally pulled the radio it was dark so I didn't see the extra unit that had been installed by the previous owner.

After removing the Mygig Lock Pick, the camera works fine.
