Rear camera failed on Nexus 7 2013
I just replaced the motherboard on my Nexus 7 2013 with a motherboard obtained from Ifixit. The device is now working well again after Android 5.X bricked the last motherboard, EXCEPT the rear facing camera is not functioning. The OS doesn't recognize there is a camera installed.
Any suggestions on how to remedy this problem?
Figured it out, so I'll post it so others may benefit.
I did two things to correct this problem.
First, removed the motherboard and checked the ribbon cable attachment from the motherboard to the camera. It was disconnected.
Second, restart the device 4 or 5 times and the rear facing camera came back to life.
Is this a good question?
