iPhone 5c Rear Camera and Flashlight Failure

My iPhone 5c rear camera has stopped working. When opening the camera app the front facing camera works but the rear appears black.

Additionally, when attempting to use the flashlight the icon is grayed out. The flashlight will not start when it is pressed.

I think that I have ruled this out the possibility of this being a software issue. I have rebooted, restored, and update the phone with no change in behavior.

I need to know how the rear camera and flashlight are connected. Do they both connect to the logic board? Is there a sub board that they both connect to?

Should I replace the entire logic board in this case?

I am going to pop the phone open and see what I can see.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

My flashlight and camera light doesn't work. I recently change my screen assembly and the phone/light worked fine for about 2 weeks. Could the replacement part defective? How can I test it? Do you offer any warranty on the parts you sell?
