Earpiece speaker, vibration, microphone and home button don't work.

Just replaced the display assembly on iPhone 5c.

Took all the components from the old display assembly and put on the new one.

After this, earpiece speaker doesn't work, along with microphone, vibration and the home button.

I took everything off and put back on but doesn't work.

Perhaps I'm not fitting these components correctly?

I haven't actually tested the front facing camera yet to determine if it's the front facing cable assembly. I shall do that when I get the chance.

Ehh.. Possible that you haven't replaced things properly. Also possible that you've damaged some things, while doing the repair. It happens. Double check your work, see which things need attention

Well I managed to get the earpiece speaker working. But the front facing camera and proximity sensor still don't work. Also, vibration still doesn't work. Although, I've noticed it randomly crashing and the device feeling hot, so it's overhearing too.


Sounds like the front camera flex assembly is broken. There's a metal tab on the back of the shield plate, for the display assembly. It could be interfering with the vibrator motor. Your device is crashing and getting hot? I'm starting to wonder what parts of your logic board have been damaged...


Yeah thanks for the help. I got this off of eBay to fix and it was pretty much in pieces when it came. I'll check that tab to see if it's interfering with the vibration. It has got a compatible battery rather than an original, and only gets hot when charging. Perhaps that's it.


That could definitely be it. Third party battery over working the board
