    Anyone have their rear view camera display cut in half, displaying the ground on the top half and top view on the bottom?
    It happens both when I'm driving and in reverse about a few times a month for the past year. It usually clears up on it's own in a day or two. Rebooting didn't fix it. rearcam.JPG

    It's a known problem. It's happened to me once or twice.

    If you need to clear it up in a hurry, I'd try parking the car, then: Controls > E-Brake & Power Off > Power Off — and then sit quietly for a couple of minutes, without touching any controls or pedals. That seems to be a deeper power cycle than either of the steering wheel reboots.

    I wonder what causes this... Is it a buggy camera chip (sensor in the RV cam), or is it some bug within the MCU or LCD display?

    Anyone with insight please chime in

    I've had that happen a couple of times. The 2 finger salute solved it every time.

    I saw it for the first time just last week. Reboot cleared it up right away, and haven't seen it again since. It first came up while trying to reverse out of the typically-tight California parking space, so disconcerting to say the least.

    Happened to me a week ago. First time in 2.5 years with the car ever seeing anything like that.

    Two fingered salute reboot of the center console took care of it.

    I too have encountered this issue and have seen this issue intermittently since year and half ago. When I took my car today for something else, I let the technician know about it and he said that this is an issue that has been brought to their attention recently and Tesla is looking into it. For now, all they can say is that it is not a hardware issue but a firmware issue so no ETA on the firmware fix for that yet.

    Service center has no solution to this issue. I had it twice, rebooted and it was gone.
