My iPhone cannot boot after screen and Front Facing Camera replacement

When I got this iPhone 6 Plus, its screen was badly cracked. I ordered a new screen and replaced it, it could be booted normally at that time, but I noticed that the front facing camera and earpiece speaker did not work normally. Hence, I ordered a new "iPhone 6 Plus Front Facing Camera and Sensor Assembly Replacement" and replaced it, but now my iPhone cannot boot. It keeps rebooting after showing the apple icon. Please refer to the following video:

I have tried the following methods:

1. I used the old facing camera and the new screen, but the problem still exists. It is weird, as I can boot it normally before installing the new facing camera.

2. I used the old cracked screen, no facing camera connected. The problem still exists.

3. I used the new screen, no facing camera connected. The problem still exists.

Do I damage the mainboard when I was installing the front facing camera? What should I do next? Please help me!!!

UPDATE: Well, after restoring my iPhone 6 Plus using iTunes, the iPhone 6 Plus can boot now, but the digitizer is not working. When I use my fingers to touch the screen, the screen does not respond. ....

Sounds like a bad touch ic chip(it's on logic board and if it is the culprit for touch issues then it needs to be replaced by someone that does microsoldering) , intermittent no touch or never touching anymore?

For front camera replacement stuck at boot that is a bad part which means try getting a replacement part from where you bought it from.

Ben is right . Apple offers a replacement program for this issue. I would take the phone in and see if you can swap it for a brand new one for $150.

And I also recommend selling the replacement asap and using the money to buy the newer models that don't have this issue.

Interesting.. I had this issue with the 5 series back in the day. Not yet with the 6.

I would try a restore or update (if you want to keep the info). See if it goes in to restore mode. You do this by holding the home button while plugging into the computer. If it doesn't go into restore mode, you've got a bigger problem, but from what you're describing, you should still have access to restore mode.

Once in restore mode, do the update. if it's fully updated, then you'll need to try a full restore to rule out any software issues. Keep in mind this will delete all data!

For the 5S a lot of the times it had to do with the front camera flex., but i'm not so sure on the i6.

I would try that first, then report back.
