Front Camera proximity sensor and front speaker after battery swap

I just replaced the battery with a fresh one and now the entire front assembly accept the screen and home button won't work. I've done a few hard resets and reconnected the cables and it still won't work.

Is this a good question?

Plug it into the computer and see if iTunes application detects it at all with the screen and battery plugged in.


It's detected and charges

These cables are super easy to irritate with minor twisting.

Try turning off your phone, disconnecting your battery, disconnecting and reconnecting the sensor (after ensuring the male/female ports are clean) and then reconnecting the battery and powering on. If the issue persist I'd suggest purchasing a new proximity sensor to check against a small tear or damage that isn't obvious to the human eye.

Well I'd have to replace the entire front assembly save for the display and home button. Oh well :(
