Facetime Camera not working after Screen-Replacement

Hello :)

So my front Camera is not working after a screen replacement and I have no clue, what the problem could be since I already tried an new front facetime flex.

Its only the facetime camera, which is not working.The other parts of this flex are working: proximity sensor & earpiece speaker.

Everything else on this iPhone 7 Plus works perfectly fine.

Any suggestions?

Best Regards :-)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You might start out with a hard reset of the phone. For the iPhone 7 Plus this is done by holding the power button on the right hand side down while simultaneously holding the volume down button. Hold these two buttons down until the phone power cycles and starts to reboot. This by the way will not erase any personal data.

If that doesn't solve the problem, examine under a magnifying glass the FPC connector on the logic board for any bent or burnt pins - a single bent pin could effect the front camera without effecting the proximity sensor or earpiece functions. Also examine the proximity flex connector assembly for any nicks or tears.

Thank you very much for you answer!

Really appreciate your help.

I tried the hard reset just like you explained it, but it didnt help for me.

I also just opened the iPhone again and checked the FPC Connector and the flex cable and couldnt find any damages or something like that.


Did you ever find anything out?
