how to properly link an OrthographicCamera to a OrthogonalTiledMapRenderer

How do I properly link an OrthographicCamera to a OrthogonalTiledMapRenderer? I have tiled map i'd like render and two stages that have actors on them.. I call render.render() in my screens render method as well as stages.draw(); but every i put render.setView(camera) the screen displayed flashes or does other weird things. How do I properly attach a moveable camera to a tiled map renderer? I render the map first, do game logic and then call draw on the stages. when I call translate on the camera the tiled map zooms way out for some reason?

here is my render method

public void render(float delta) {

    Gdx.gl.glClearColor(1, 0, 0, 1);
        Gdx.gl.glBlendFunc(GL20.GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL20.GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA);


        backStage.act(); // acts are called but do nothing




here is where the camera and renderer get created

public void addMap(GameMap map){

    renderer=new OrthogonalTiledMapRenderer(map.getTiledMap(), 1/20f);
    camera= new OrthographicCamera(Gdx.graphics.getWidth(), Gdx.graphics.getHeight());
    float aspect = Gdx.graphics.getWidth()/Gdx.graphics.getHeight();
    camera.setToOrtho(false, 20*aspect, 20*aspect);

    frontStage= new Stage();
    backStage=new Stage();

I solved my problem I took  someones working code   to make the camera move which was  100% the same as mine   made a new class tried running  it .  It worked!!  Then I slowly added  more of code  testing each time until I was 100% of my previous code that did not work.  The only thing I changed is I now have a new source code file (the class name is still the same though). Making a new class solved withe same code solved my problem?????
