Front camera not working. Multiple camera tried.

I have an iPhone 6 plus that the front camera is not working on after a touch IC repair. The flash works fine as does the microphone, rear camera, and earspeaker. I have tried multiple cameras and cleaned the connection about a million times. There does not seem to be any problem with the connection.

Is this a good question?

Is this your own phone or a customer's phone?

It is my phone. A project I am working on.

And now I have tried three cameras just in case lol.

Also to be clear I bought the phone on eBay with touch already broken so we cant be sure the front camera was ever working.

Hi,

You mentioned Touch IC repair.

There's a lot of components on the opposite side of the touch ics, near the digitiser and LCD connector, these are covered in underfill, and when heated up causes them to be pulled off the board or moved with the underfill, check the components and put them back or replace them.

Been looking at google image diagrams for hours. Any idea for a better picture of the components near the lcd connector there?

I haven't got ZXW tools at hand, will get back to you as I can't remember off by heart which component it is, but it's definitely to do with them as the underfill expands and moves them off the pads.

That will certainly be appreciated!
