Camera not working after drop

Hi there,

I have a customer that dropped his two week old iPhone 6. Screen was broken but housing is still mint because of a good case.

I had ordered a new screen assembly and a new rear camera. Repair went perfectly, it's not my first iPhone 6. But when I powered it up, the camera problem was still the same;

camera app opens up but shows only black image. It is however possible to turn to the front camera.

The flash light isn't working either, that was also the case with iPhone 5 that had faulty cameras.

Any advice? I might advise him to take his phone to the store for warranty. The repair was done without fingerprints and such so they won't notice.

Kind regards,

Renaat

It's probably the rear camera IC chip needing to be replaced if you already tried replacing the rear camera. I had it done for me once so I know it's possible.

After seeing a suggestion to turn phone in and off, instead I refreshed my phone by holding the on/off button and the home button at the same time(like a screenshot).

Hold them both down till the screen goes black. Wait about 8 seconds before turning it on.

The camera worked instantly and so did the flashlight!!
