Both cameras and flash stopped working after battery replacement
Hey, I just replaced my iPhone 5 battery. However, my front and rear camera as well as my flash are not working. I ended up disconnecting the front panel display because I had trouble keeping it upright while trying to pry out the battery.
I'm pretty sure the 3 flex cables that connect the display are strained. I can occasionally get the rear camera and flash working when I bend the cables a bit, but I have never gotten the front facing camera working again.
The weird thing is that when I had a repair shop connect a brand new display to the motherboard, I still couldn't get either cameras or flash working.
Any suggestions? I've had this phone for 4 years and its served me well. I'd rather not have to spend the money on another phone.
Is this a good question?
