Hello! If the camera is showing a black screen that means the phone is not communicating with the camera. Try reconnecting the cable. Make sure it's the right way.

Have you Re-booted the phone? If that doesn't work just check to make sure that there is nothing covering the actual front camera. Failing that id say its dodgy

Since you've done what the other two answers say then it is one of two things, either a faulty camera, or something is damaged on the flex cable/connector.
