iPhone 8 Camera and the flash stops working after some usage.

So i replaced rear case (housing), display and rear camera on a iPhone 8 for a customer.

The phone worked great for a couple of days, the problem now is that the camera stops working together with the flash. This was a problem she was experiencing before my repair though. Anyways, i ordered the sidebutton flex and a new camera once again, but when she got in with the phone for repair the camera and flash was suddenly working again after i had unplugged the battery and then connected it back together. so she went home with her device but came back once again with same problem, so this time i actually swapped out the camera unit again and the camera works great.

Today i got a call from the same person and the issue persists, i feel like this problem is very odd but i would want to hear from anyone if they had the same problem or if someone knows a fix for this.

The Flash will not work if the camera is not responding so you need to focus on the rear camera. If you have tried multiple rear cameras and you are confident that your supplier is sending you good quality parts, then the issue may be logic board related. Ideally, you need to access either a known-good housing/logic board or rear camera to help you isolate the issue.
