Vibration doesn't work when the phone is completely assembled.

Hi everybody. I recently changed the LCD screen of my iPhone 5s (third party, works perfectly). When I reassembled the phone, I realized that the vibration was not working. I opened the device again, and realized that the vibration works perfectly as long as the LCD is not completely inserted. As soon as I press the LCD to make it fit into the back case, the vibration stops working. I think it is some kind of contact's fault. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

You probably have some contact or friction between the screen assembly, specifically the camera and sensor housing, and the vibrator. It could be physically obstructing it or causing a bad electrical contact.

Go back though this guide to double check that you have everything properly installed.

Fixed! It was indeed a mechanical issue, a little part of metal of the front camera housing was pushing on the vibrator. Thanks a lot!


My pleasure!
