Mechanic's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Where would I find the exact make and model of the camera it has no markings, got it installed in Nov 2012

Mechanic's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I was getting a static picture that slowly went to nothing

sorry for the delay............
There is no way to give you exact info, without Brand or Model Number, if it is Aftermarket, as there are 100's of Back Up Camera Brands.
Depending on where it is mounted (in handle, license frame, drilled hole, bracket, etc) you best bet would be to locate the same "type" from lookig to see how it is mounted & what wires are connected.

Many Local Car Stereo Shops, Auto Parts, WalMart, etc can typically sell you one for less than Repair.
Run the wires down to see if the Camera has a "long" cable or a short one that is plugged into the Cable by the Tail Gate or Spare Tire

Let me know if you need further
