Is my camera dead?

I'm having trouble with the camera that came with my FS Predator system. It just blanked out one day now I'm getting just a blank grey screen(yes, the lense cap is off). I know the Vtx is working because I still get the OSD overlay. I get the same thing with the OSD removed from the system, so I know it's not an OSD issue. The microphones on the camera are still working and I'm getting sound transmission, just no picture. I've checked all the wires and connections, everything looks OK, and the video signal wire has continuity from one end to the other.

What else can I check? Are there any other tests I can do? Thanks for the help.

I would look closely at the cameras cable at the connector end. Mine has a broken audio wire, it broke the first week I had it. For you it may be one or more of 3, red, black or the green wire.

It's a moot point now, investigating further I accidentally pulled the plug socket off the board, so it's scrap now.
