No rear camera flash and front camera

Hi, the iPhone 7 of a friend of mine was crushed by a car.

the glass has broken and the rear-facing camera and flash unit no longer works.

I replaced the display and it works but still do not work the cameras and the flash.

visually there are no damage to the components and the flat.

do you think it is worthwhile to replace the cameras?

thank you

Salve, l’iphone 7 di un mio amico è stato schiacciato da una autovettura.

si è rotto il vetro e non funziona più la videocamera frontale posteriore e flash.

ho sostituito il display e funziona ma ancora non funzionano le videocamere ed il flash.

visivamnete non ci sono danni ai componenti ed i flat.

secondo voi vale la pena sostituire le videocamere?


Update (09/04/2018)

I tried to turn on the phone with the cameras connected and disconnected but the result is the same. does this mean that the cameras are not faulty?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I would at least try to replace the cameras. I have seen where replacing the cameras works and other times when it doesn’t. There could be an underlying board level issue. A phone can sustain microscopic fractures in traces that cant be seen by the naked eye. Hopefully this can be resolved by replacing the cameras.
