The copper shield isn't really necessary for the screen assembly or front camera assembly.

Is the front camera not working? Then you need to replace the front camera assembly.

You can buy the replacement front camera from here:

Guide to replace the part:

Optionally you can buy the copper shield and install it if you want:
