prox sensor not working but speaker does

I recently replaced the LCD on a 5S and seperated the prox sensor solder from the rest of it. I replaced the entire cable and grounded under the tape to the LCD shield. The earpiece speaker works but not the prox. I didn't have the passcode so I couldn't test the front facing camera. Any idea as to why the prox doesn't work?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Did you make sure that the spacer for the proximity sensor is in place? If it is missing, the sensor may end up in a position that causes it to not function correctly.

Good luck!
