Vibrate not working after changing digitizer, or with brand new motor.
The vibrate function has stopped working after converting my black iphone to white (I used the iFixit.com guide). I then purchased a brand new vibrate motor and it still doesn't work.
I tried the iBrate app and hitting the phone to dislodge a stuck motor (to no avail), but two different stuck motors is highly unlikely.
I also tried to get it to vibrate with the back glass off, just to make sure the counter-weight was free to turn. I can turn it freely with a toothpick so it's not getting stuck on anything.
The silent toggle switch is registering - when I switch to silent the screen displays the crossed out bell icon, but there is no vibration. Vibrate is definitely on in sound settings.
Does anyone know any other troubleshooting steps? Or perhaps the voltage used to power the vibrate motor - I could measure the output voltage..? Thanks for any help!
Is this a good question?
