Earpiece Not Working After Screen Replacement


This is probably the THIRD iPhone 8 or 8+ that has had this issue.  Even though we were careful to remove the camera flex cable and the tape with it, and transfer it to the new LCD/Digitizer assembly, the earpiece REFUSES to work.  The camera works just fine.  I need assistance and answers.  I have cleaned the contacts with alcohol.  I have installed Kapton tape.  I have switched out the piece with a new flex cable and new ear piece speaker.  Yet, I know it worked BEFORE we took the phone apart.  Suggestions on how to use the ORIGINAL flex cable?
