iPhone X cameras and flashlight don't work after drop
My 1-year-old got a hold of my wife’s iPhone X and dropped it onto hard tile and now her front and rear cameras just show black and the flashlight will no longer turn on. It all was working before the drop. She has it in a case with a screen protector and it only fell from child standing height, so I’m not sure what could have rattled loose. We did try rebooting the phone a few times with no luck. Tonight I opened it up with my iFixIt kit, but I didn’t see anything obviously broken. The only sign of damage is a hairline crack on the rear camera module between the flash and the edge. I unplugged all the ribbon cables and re-seated them. The phone still boots up just fine and everything else works including FaceID, but still no cameras or flash. Could this be some other cable I’m missing that rattled loose, or maybe a crack in a PCB? I’m also wondering if a new rear camera module would fix it. Thanks for any thoughts.
Is this a good question?
