Back-up camera issues

I recently purchased a 2016 RAV4 Hybrid Limited. I am experiencing some odd distortion in the upper right corner of the back up camera screen. It appears to be a dim mirror image of the camera image cutting diagonally across the top corner (like folding the corner of a page of a book). Has anybody else experienced this? Does this indicate deterioration of the camera system? Is there a camera reset procedure?

Have you cleaned the camera lens?

Yes, I did. I first thought it was a wet leaf covering the corner. But upon closer examination the lens was clean and the small triangular area in the upper right hand corner is an abnormality in the backup image only. Other screens don't have it.

Maybe take a picture of it? It sounds like a digital problem. Perhaps the sensor inside the camera.

There are several different optical modes for the camera, perhaps you need to choose a different one.

Good grief. That thing in the corner is the over-hang on the rear door. So its supposed to be there. Have someone go put their finger there and tell you what it is while you watch.

Good Grief Agreed Indeed. I would have thought that this "dog-eared page" anomaly is due to a round lens input in an otherwise rectangular view output. We are given the 100% of the viewable image THAT MATTERS, and this upper right corner exclusion is of (literally) no consequence. Oh. Yeah. There is a chance that a sparrow could fly into that space and you would hit it while backing. Or not.

Wondering if anyone had work done on their car before the camera issues? I just had the lift gate control module that was recalled replaced and now the camera appears to be pointing down a lot more than before with a dark spot in the upper right. I will have to take it back unless I can reposition it myself?
