I think it is the rear camera. A bad causing under voltage would cause more trouble like a unresponding or ghosting touch screen. Replace the rear camera first. This was a very common problem of iPhone 5 that the rear or front camera stops working and causes crashes of the camera application. If this doesn´t work out please post your results so we can check the next steps.

luck not look


Ok sir .i will get my replacement rear and battery tomorrow i update you as soon as i replaced it .I cant touch the phone sometimes when the phone is not being used for a long period of time .For example when i will sleep at night when i power it on the phone is not responsive i just close the phone and open then it will respond .


And i have a question about the steps is it okay not to remove the battery from the housing i mean i will just unplug the cable of battery to the board ?


yes, it is no necessary to separate the battery from the rear housing. But the first thing you should do when your opening any phone: unplug the battery first before unplugging anything else! This will avoid any kind of shorts during the disassembly.


Ok sir another question sorry for asking so much i really wanna learn fixing phone that much .what if it shorts ?For example the rear camera shorted what does that mean is that means that the rear camera is damage or the board is damage ?
