iPhone 7 Plus - Front Camera + Proximity Sensor causing malfunctioning
I did a iphone 7 plus screen replacement today & for some reason the phone starts to malfunction everytime I have the Front Camera + Prox Sensor ribbon cable attached. When attached the phone lags, the home button does not work - it shows the accessibilty icon to use as a home button, and the phone acts very weird.
At first I thought it was the replacement screen but I replaced all the part on the original screen that was cracked & I am getting the same issues.
When I disconnect ONLY the Front Camera + Prox sensor Ribbon cable, leaving the two other ribbon cables connected the phone functions perfectly fine. Home button works again, screen is 100% responsive with no lag at all. The phone works perfect.
The issues only occur when I have front camera + prox sensor connected.
I tried the original screen that was cracked & two other replacement screens. All get the same results as I just listed.
As long as the front camera + prox sensor isnt connected the phone functions perfectly, cant find a problem.
Does anyone have a solution to this? Unfortunetley I was unable to try a new proximity sensor + front camera because I did not have any on me.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
I have searched the web but cannot find a solution.
I disconnected the battery before I removed all 3 ribbon cables, as I do with every repair.
Help would be greatly appreciated ! =D
Is this a good question?
