Black Screen for Both Cameras and No Flash after Screen Replacement

Yeah like the title states. I am at a loss. Everything works but both cameras and flash.

I even replaced:

Buttons Flex Cable

Front facing camera flex cable

Rear Camera Assembly

So only thing I can figure out is maybe the connections the motherboard itself.

Anyone find something obvious that I am missing?

Update (07/17/2017)

Yes there are really only two connectors according the logic board map that affect these. I will take a very careful look at both tomorrow and get back with you.

It would be crazy if that was it.

I think I have been overthinking this.

Thanks man. Will report my findings.

Was three capacitors near the display connection. Two bent and one broken off. They tried to fix it. Even soldered a new one from another board. No dice.

Cameras didn't work, and the phone stopped accepting a charge.

Thanks for the help man.

Take a good look, preferably with magnification, at the connectors. You want to inspect for bent or damaged pins or missing components near the connectors. Let us know what you find by commenting on this answer.

I couldn't see anything wrong. I looked thoroughly. Sigh. So close. I might have missed it but I may take it in to get it checked out and hope they don't charge me 700 bucks
