Galaxy s4 rear camera replaced now have "camera fail" error

I recently replaced my rear camera on my galaxy s4. After replacing it and re-assembling the phone everything turns on fine. When I try tyo run my camera I get a "camera fail" error and it exits the camera. I assumed it was a bad camera and ordered another. Installed this one same error. I put the older camera back and it works just fine. Anyone have any fixes for this? I have reset the camera app and removed all the cache and I still get the error.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

anybody got this fixed? I have the same issue....

Update

I've been reading around that there are different versions of the camera. I've noticed this too. The IC soldered onthe replacement has a different amount of pins than the original. The original has 5 pins while the replacement has six...does anybody know if that has something to do with it?

“Warning: Camera Failed” shows on the Galaxy S4 after replacing the camera. The reason is that you use a wrong S4 camera. watch the video : Why camera app failed after Galaxy S4 I9500 camera repairing

The words typed on the camera flex cable is the key to distinguish the different cameras.

The camera typed “GT-I9505” or “F” on the flex cable is suitable for SCH-I545, SCH-R970, SGH-M919, SPH-L720 and SGH-I337 version. The camera flex cable was typed "GT-I9500", which is only suitable for I9500.

I think so. There are several reasons for "camera failed". It will occur after using a wrong camera.
