Backup camera scrambles or flickers off

I'm having issues with my backup camera, and now with a sore neck and shoulder I reallllly miss that camera! Putting the car into reverse I get a scrambled view like an old TV needing an antenna adjustment. Sometimes its in color and very distorted or scrambled, sometimes there's nothing but black and white scrambled lines. Yesterday it got worse as now it also will flicker completely off and go back to my audio screen.

It usually works itself back to normal after driving awhile- perhaps something is loose and it gets jostled back?
It first happened when weather changed a few months ago and I thought moisture may have gotten inside, because it finally cleared up on its own and I had forgotten about it till yesterday.
Both service dealers in my area tell me they dont have anyone who works on this issue on Saturdays so I am screwed until I can take a vacation day.
My hot-air-blowing-from-the-AC issue also came back yesterday so I may need to rent a car for several days anyway to get them to fix.

Any suggestions? If its not too expensive a fix I'd be happy to take it ANYWHERE for service but I have to be careful about doing anything that may void a warranty. However a warranty that I cant seem to use around my schedule is useless.

Are you taking the car to a dedicated Lincoln dealer? If so, they should be providing you with a loaner.
