Face ID not working correctly

Screen replaced with OEM part. Face ID intialises but is not working as it should.

When user rotates head during setup, it only picks up around 3/4 of the Face. Other times it can’t find a Face and just blues.

Any ideas? Checked connections, restarted phone etc.

I don’t believe the cable has become damaged as it is not saying ‘Face ID unavailable’.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Reinstall the screen or clean the screen to make sure there is no dust on the sensor hole.

there is an infared camera on the left side and a dot projector on the right side. you need to adjust one of the 2. most likely one of them is just not aligned just right in the cutout.
