    I have a Phantom 2 that I installed isod mini/ImmersionRC 5.8Ghz and Black Pearl monitor per the video on You Tube. I downloaded the dji isod assistant and connected the isod mini via usb to my laptop and made sure everything was up to date.
    When I turn everything on I get the following picture on my Black Pearl. What you can't tell in the picture is that the screen/picture is also scrolling. Also there is a picture from the GoPro camera but it appears to be in black and white. Is it possible the Black Pearl is defective?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Make sure video transmitter and monitor on same channel and GoPro and monitor both set to NTSC or PAL. Probably NTSC if using them in Alabama.

    How do I find out what channel the video transmitter is set to?

    Thanks for the help.

    There are dip switches on the transmitter.

    Its the ntsc /pal thing. Make sure both your monitor and gopro are set to either ntsc or pal. At the moment they are set differently.

    Thanks everyone for the replies, it was the NTSC/PAL thingy. Once I changed it to NTSC on the Black Pearl the picture was perfect.
