3rd time changing power/sensor cable and still not working

Hello Community

This is my first post.

I've repaired tons of iPhones by now but this one is puzzling me.

My wife's iPhone 4 stopped turning of the screen when she was on the phone, which resulted in her ear is pressing all the buttons on the screen.

Now I have replaced the sensor/power cables for the 3rd time and it is still not working... anyone have any idea why? I doubt that I have bought 3 defective sensor cables.

Best Regards

Did you lose the IR filter for the sensor?

That Might actually be correct.... thought that it was only some sort of spacing foam, might just have tossed it.... can I buy a new anywhere ?
