Disabling backup camera on Mazda CX5?

Does anyone know how you can either turn off just the back up camera display or even the whole display inside? Car is a 2017 Mazda cx5.

Also, before people just comment why would you want to do that its required. My car is being used for a read test and backup cameras must be disabled. I just cannot figure out how to do it.

    Put some electrical tape over the lens, remove it when you're done.

      I didn’t think of electrical tape! I was worried about the residue of like duct tape or painters tape but I don’t think electrical will do that. I don’t like the idea of messing with fuses so I think this is a great idea. Thank you!

    Put a piece of cardboard over the display.

    I never heard of BS like this before. You don't use cars for a "read test" it's the road test!

    Try pulling the fuse out of the fuse box that powers the camera and the radio until the test is over

    To temporarilly disable your camera, Just put a piece of duct tape over the camera lens at the rear of the car.

    Put a couple of pieces of blue 3M painters tape over the camera lenses

    It comes off without leaving residue.
