iPhone 6 rear camera and flash not working

Hi all!

I dropped my phone and replaced the screen. Everything was working fine after the replacement of the screen.

I tried to open the camera app and the only thing I can see is a black screen with the record button etc.

Also when I tried to switch the flashlight on, nothing happened.

The flashlight and camera are 2 different parts, but does the one not work if one is broken?

Hope someone could help me to solve this problem. Thanks in advance!

My camera works fine but the flash/flashlight does not. Can the LED light be replaced. I've been to Apple store and they offered me a new phone for $250. Too much so that I can read a menu in a dark restaurant.

OK after reading all these comments, I'm clearer about my problem. When taking a picture in front of me, flash does not work. When taking a picture of me, flash works. Any ideas on a solution?

Is your rear camera plugged in? It is possible that it got unplugged by accident.

I had similar issues once with an iPad and lucky me I fixed the issue by restoring the unit. I'd try that before anything else. The other solution would be to re-open the device and make sure you didn't unplug the camera flex cable by accident when you swapped the display assembly.

Hello mshib0,

Can the ic chip without problems been removed ?

What is the function of this ic chip ?

by

Is this applicable to the iPhone 6 Plus also? What Is that little part called? My 6 plus has no flash or flash light.

by

What this is doing is removing a power supply chip that generates 2.85V when the camera is on & replacing it with powering the camera all the time directly off the battery (3.6-4.2V) . If that supply chip failing was the problem, this will "fix" it, but at the cost of always burning power and driving the camera with a hotter voltage than it's designed for.

I replaced the ribbon with the flash, sensors, powerbutton + camera. Still no flash. have noticed that the flash sometimes goes on (weak) just like a light. stays on until reboot.

Btw after IOS 10, the camera works - independent of the flash. Thats a good thing , though I still dont have flash or flashligth

Must be the motherf.. bord.
