Why isnt my front facing camera working after changing front display?

I replaced the front display on the iphone 5 and now the front camera appears as black and actually locks up the rear camera and causes it to display sideways. I also noticed the compass is going haywire and will not stop spinning. Are these two issues related?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes they can be. If the compass IC is damaged it can cause issues with the front camera flex.

Or it could be a case of using the incorrect magnetized screw in the standoff next to the compass IC, and a separate issue with the front camera.
