Back camera not working, then front camera not working: Screen replace

Hi,

Before I start i would like to add that this is a different problem and have not been described from the threads ive read.

After my screen replacement on iPhone 6 I noticed that the back camera did not work, (it said it was too hot) I opened it and the back camera cable was not fully attached, I fixed it and the back camera started working, then the front camera did not work, what could have occured this?

Everything worked at first, and the front camera did work during the time the back camera was not working

Please help

Thanks in advance!

/Eddie

I would go back and double check (see step 15) the connector for the front camera. It may have become partially dislodged when you fixed the back camera.

Then the obvious thing to try is a new front camera. However if that doesn't work, then yes, you probably have an issue on the logic board. When the back camera created excess heat, that is usually a short condition and it may have damaged one of the voltage rails. There are three voltage rails for each camera (one of them is shared so that one is probably fine).

Yes, I will try changing the camera but the weird thing is that, I dont understand what happened the second i put the back camera in, the front broke.
