its not uncommon for one of two things to happen, the front camera flex is a little more delicate than others and can be damaged in the repair, ifixit sells replacements for not much money, they also often do not get plugged in straight. Open the phone back up, disconnect and reconnect the camera flex again and see if that fixes it.
