Vehicular victims of the eclipse

Ok so I'm probably getting worked up over nothing, but during the eclipse last week, my truck's backup camera ceased to function.


A few hours prior to the eclipse it was working fine, but during the eclipse - and actually, for the rest of the day as well - the camera would only show this image: 


Starting at 8 a.m. the next day, the camera started working fine again and all has been dandy ever since.

But this experience has raised one silly and one serious question:

  • Serious: could there really be any connection between the eclipse and a busted backup camera?
  • Silly: do you think my manufacturer's warranty covers "unexpected damaged from eclipse?"
