Has your rear entertainment system control unit been replaced under warranty?

We rarely use our RES in our 2018 Elite, as we haven’t done a road trip since July. Went to try it today while waiting at the doctor’s office, and these are images of what I see if I click Cabin Watch, or try to use the blu ray player. It just sits on the loading screen.

I‘m aware of the service bulletin for the RES control unit, but the vehicle is out of warranty. It’s roughly $950 for a new unit from Honda.

I have had mine replaced under warranty in 2020 because my head unit got bricked when updating Garmin navigation maps.

Does everything else work properly except for the cabin camera? If yes then it’s probably just the camera wire or connector or the camera that has the issue, not the head unit.

Everything works correctly except for Cabin Watch, and the blu-ray player doesn’t work. I’ll have to check for any loose connectors at the RES control unit tomorrow. The van went in for warranty work back in October/September, and they may have messed with things.
Tell them it seems to have stopped working after the warranty work and you just checked it now. They may be able to look at it for you if you talk nicely to the service manager.
