in my experience if u put a small piece of scotch tape covered in sharpie over the sensors before installing the new screen works for me. its not an issue with cables or anything its because its a different tint of paint on the two little holes.

you may have a logic board failure. Check the connector. If it is damaged, you need to replace the logic board unless you are talented in micro soldering.

There is no problem with the logic board.

Before the replacement worked perfect and now the sensor doest't work.

I have experience with the iPhone 4 sensor problem. On the iPhone 4 is a sensor sticker the sullution.

Maybe on the 4s to?

If multiple cables do not work, it must be a logic board issue.

I just put my logic board in another iPhone 4s and the sensor works then.

There must be wrong with the cable dan.
