    I was parking last night and I had a glitch with the backup camera. It was gone this morning. Notice how the guide lines are floating in air and the top inch is actually the bottom. Nothing had happened to the car. No bumps. I felt the camera area. Nothing.

    Anyone seen anything like this before? Again, it was gone this morning.

    I also took a picture. 20180827_182420-1008x756.jpg
    Not in reverse, so it isn't showing the guidelines.

    Yep, that's the same camera glitch. Anyone know how to report that? We have the photos.

    when i first checked in to the service center for a few other things, they were super serious about needing to know the exact time/date of the occurence because "we can look at the logs to help with diagnosing the problem..."

    i have a sense that they were hoping i wouldn't be able to give them an answer

    and because i had a picture i was able to pin point it

    SC said they would look into it

    well... the answer from the SC was so generic, it was useless:

    "the car is like a computer that it needs reboots from time to time
    need to reset the trip meters
    need to clear the bookmarks on the browser
    need to clear navigation history
    need to delete call logs
    need to repair the bluetooth
    need to stop visiting websites like teslawaze
    need to do this and that..."

    in short, tesla doesn't see it as a problem as long as it's a sporadic issue.

    Well, the exact time would be recorded by the cell phone camera with photo.
