Sounds like we can rule some things out then. A black screen when shifting into reverse means that the head unit is properly receiving the signal to switch to video input mode upon receiving power, so that part of the wiring is right, but thereís no video to display. This means that either the camera isnít receiving power, or just not transmitting a video signal properly into the head unit.

If I recall correctly, the red wire just needs to be attached to a switchable power source. Reverse light for example. Been so long since I've done mine, I can't remember where I finally hooked it up, but I know that's what I did to test it and verify the camera works.

6V power

I hope its not too late but if you're using the factory camera DO NOT connect the camera directly to a 12V source like the reverse lights! You'll most likely kill it. You're supposed to use something like a buck converter to step it down to 6V. I've installed an aftermarket head unit in my 2016 FR-S and I had to use a step down converter. You most likely will need to use one also.
