Backup camera shows black screen

My wife's 2018 M3's backup camera frequently shows nothing but a blank black screen when she backs out of the garage. This happens only in the garage and only intermittently.

Anyone experience this issue?

It now happens almost every time I have used YouTube or Netflix immediately prior to backing up. I had the problem more severely a couple years ago but that was a known problem corrected by a firmware release.

Mine has done this a couple times recently. It may something due to the latest update. I’ve found it will correct itself if given a few seconds. I did a “bug report” the 2nd time (for what it’s worth).

Big report doesn’t do anything except mark log files for the service techs to look at later. If you didn’t schedule a service appt, then the big report will just sit there
