Title:

Rear camera and flash don't work

Text:

Greetings!  First post here.

Recently, while in the dark, I noticed that my flashlight (camera flash) on my iPhone 5S was no longer working when activated from the control center.  I then began to debug it by rebooting, resetting and then finally by upgrading from iOS8 to iOS9.  None of these fixed my problems but during the investigation, I noticed that the rear camera was no longer working as well.  After some internet searching I do not really have a clear idea of whats wrong, as such, is why I am here.

This is something that I would like to try and fix myself if possible but would like some ideas of what else could be wrong here and if there are any additional debug steps.  After hopefully identifying the problem, I will likely need to purchase the part(s) and doing the repair... so any thoughts or advice here would be welcome as well.

Thanks in Advance.
