front camera stuck on shutter after screen repair

no i did it! broke of a small component on top of the motherboard. its the one responsible for the front camera. after some diggin' on the internet i found out that it can be fix by making a small bridge. tried it but it didn't work because the pads are missing. solder just didn't take.

as you can see in the picture, there is still some copper left.

tried putting some conductive glue on there but still nothing.

is there a way to fix the pads or does anyone know what points to wire connect so the part is briged

any tips are welcome

Hi, can u pls circle what it is that u r trying to repair. I just opened mine up and didnt see anything different. Maybe I am looking at it wrong.

Edit: Saw it now, the capacitor. Are u sure that bridging it will be ok? Do u have a 1nf ceramic disc lying around? Try using that, and if it works then just order a 1nf smd. Seems like there is enough contact. As far as alternate solder points, I dont think there is a schematic for the motherboard, I maybe wrong. If u do find one, pls attach a link here. Thanks.

can i ask what the heck your picture is referring to?? you've got a blue line drawn clear across the motherboard.

i understand you're supposed to bridge these two dots as clearly seen in the first photos.

Solder a thin wire between this two points.

Thank you for answering. I apologize for being so newbie! But do I have to remove the existing capacitor before I make the installation? Or can i just solder it right on top of it?

Thanks again!
