D99 proble,s

Hello all! I'm new to the forum but I've done a lot of reading with respect to the D99 unit which I have in my 2003 BMW X5 E53. I actually bought this car about three months ago with this head unit installed. When I purchased it everything worked fine. The radio reception worked well with Am/FM no matter how hard I pressed display or the frame around the radio it would never reset and it wouldn't bring up is volumevand color*settings. However, I had a guy install a backup camera, big mistake! After the installation if I hit a large bump, press the display too hard, or press the plastic frame around the display too hard, the volume setting comes out or if I was off completely. This wasn't happening before the installation. I'm unsure if the wires or crimped or pinched, or if there's an issue with the actual unit itself. It's currently running the Windows CE version of the operating system. Also now it is very difficult for me to get a.m./FM reception at all. *I ensured that the radio adapter is plugged into the*head unit as much as possible. But it doesn't seem to be flush, it seems like it might be a little loose and maybe some play there. But even when I hold him tight and put it in place and test the frequency I don't get reception anymore. This wasn't always the case. I'm really unsure about what to do, I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. Enclosed is a video with the symptoms of turning on and off
