Both Front and Rear Camera not working after screen replacement!

Alright guys. So I replaced a customers iPhone 7 Plus screen yesterday, pretty standard stuff. Took all the parts off his old screen and transferred them to a new screen. Seemed to be fine so I checked him out. He comes back into the store 5 minutes later and neither his front or back cameras show anything. Just black. The camera app fully loads and everything, just black. No errors or anything from the app. So I don't know what the problem could be, seeing as how they're in two completely separate parts of the logic board. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I've seen this before. Happened to me recently! For some reason when it's having trouble accessing the front camera, the back camera wont open either.

This cable is easily bent or torn, I would replace the front camera flex and this should solve the issue for both cameras

I've had my screen replaced at an Apple Store and the camera worked for a day. The next days both cameras and flashlight are not working. Restoring did not help. I've booked an appointment for tomorrow.

For a strange reason after switching off the phone for 10 minutes then back on, rear camera and flashlight work but not front camera, so I'm assuming the front camera is a part of the screen and it's faulty as the screen was replaced.
