iPhone 5 missing resistors/parts, Front Camera not working

Block Image

Block Image

After doing a screen replacement I am missing parts on my logic board, I must have broke them off. I cant seem to understand how to fix it. Everyone says to make a jumper on this resistor near the front camera flex connector using a circuit writer pen, but I don't know what that it is, or how to do it. Some point at just one resistor, others say make a jumper between one resistor and another. Can someone specify which one, if possible provide a picture and label it and how to do it? I'm extremely desperate at this point. Thank you so much.

Omid Zargham, best you can do at this time is to post a couple of good images of the damage. that way we can see what you see. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question to help you with that.


@oldturkey03 red circles is what I can tell is missing by my naked eyes. may have broken more. on the left of the connector (circles red) is L35, and the right circle (also circled red) is what I believe is either C192 or FL15, based on the iphone 5 professional schematic diagram. both appear to be related to the front facing camera, but I know for sure the C192/FL15 is since thats the resistor that people have posted saying to create a jumper on before

Omid Zargham, I am not a friend of placing jumpers and I would not do that. I would replace it properly. As you also pointed out, you are missing L35 all together and will have to replace that to. The other parts that appear to be missing (could of course just be my old people vision) are Reference designator R63

Reference Designator C18

Reference designator FL26.

Since you do have the schematic, I do not have to list the values. All those parts should only add up to a few $ and I would replace it properly. If you do not have the tools or the ability to fix it, you could contact user jessabethany on here and see if you can get it soldered that way. Stay away from circuit writer pens unless you know exactly what to do. It can make an utter mess out of your logic board. Hope this helps, good luck.

As i'm on the same boat i would like an advice on fixing the L35 filter: Is it better to use a heat gun or a micropencil?


Alex, if you have not done work like this before I'd advice against a hot air station. I find that that people new to this melt the solder on the rest of the nearby components. this can lead to displacement and further damage. Use a soldering station for this job.
