Wifi is greyed out and the front camera won't turn

So I recently replaced a broken iPhone 4S screen for a new one, everything was fine until i tried to connect to wifi and it wouldn't let me. It also won't let me turn my camera to the front, where have I went wrong? I looked at the wifi antenna and no ribbons or anything are broken. Please help

Sounds like Wi-Fi IC chip needs to be replaced and not sure about the front camera you either have to replace it or a component connecting to the front camera is faulty instead.

This is a common fault with the 4s, we do a "Reflow service" for this issue, This is where we heat the wifi chip unto 270 deg which reflows the solder underneath the chip, this works 80% of the time but may not be permanent. as for the selfie camera I would say that it just need to be replaced and if not there would be an issue with the motherboard. Good luck
