Title:

iPhone 8 rear camera problems after fall

Text:

After a fall, my iPhone 8 rear camera isn't detected and the flash doesn't seem to work either (tested with torch function).

Now I've opened it, disconnected the battery and disconnected the camera and re-assembled everything. It seemed to work fine then for a few hours and now the same 2 problems are back.

I'm a bit reluctant to order an expensive rear camera, because I think the problems lays with the motherboard since it affects both flash and camera at the same time which are independent of eachother (right?)

Is it likely that the problem lays with the motherboard?
