Start with the basics,(feed cable disconnected from the back of the monitor???) does (should) the system switch on when you select reverse? If so do the reverse lights come on when reverse selected. If not check if the circuit is fused, if it is and the fuse is OK check the reverse light switch on the gearbox by by-passing it, if all works when the switch is by-passed its the switch thats duff. If the reverse lights come on trace the cable back from the camera to see where its picking its power up from (probably very close to the reversing lights themselves to reduce the cable run) check that connection (if its a scotchbloc or similar check for corrosion. If thats OK check there is power at the camera and so-on.

Basically you have to start at the beginning (or end) and work back to see at which point there is no power. If there is power all the way through then the camera MIGHT be the problem.

Process of elimination is the ONLY way.

fault found reversing camera
 
thanks for help yesterday, went through all checks eventually came down to working when camera plugged directly into control box, so it must be the cable that runs from the control box up to the camera how on earth do you replace this ? also where would I get a new one the ends are sealed did think of putting new plugs on the ends but there could be a break anywhere from middle cupboard to camera at rear top of van any suggestions please regards mike

Glad you have at least found the problem.

The cable will be a generic one, you just need to know what ends you need. (picture on your phone and a visit to Maplins or similar.)

To replace it tape one end of your new one to the end of your old one and then pull the old one gently through. Job done

If you cannot see exactly what you need, give them a ring. They are extremely helpful people.
