Face ID not recognizing any face after screen replacement

Hi all, I got a problem with an iPhone XR I just repaired. After screen replacement and iPhone inizialized, Face ID is working (no “unable to set” error) but unable to set any face. I don’t see any error while setting, so I think I did the replacement well. Any suggestion?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The Face ID unit is paired to each iPhone, so you need to use the original one that came from the original display. It needs to be transferred over to the new display, and Face ID should work again.

Yeah I did, just forgot to say. I transfered it to the new screen, or I would have seen the unable to set up error. @carsman248
