Camera won't work after digitizer/lcd replacement

I replaced the digitizer/lcd and back panel with a new color mod. I have an issue with the antenna I believe. I think it is either weak or not working, cause I get no signal in my house. Yet to test it out outside, and yet to try the soldering trick to bypass the resistor I saw online.

Sorry, rant, main problem now:

Camera doesn't open. I have made sure to put the gold connector pin back on top of the logic board, under the screw, and it is hooked up properly. I suppose I need to try cleaning the connector still but I doubt that will fix it. I will try and post results. Any other ideas on how to fix camera? Aside from full camera replacement... I'm cheap :P

PS Rear camera

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Comments:

I've looked very very closely all over the board and found NO missing capacitors. Nothing to solder. All the special clips of metal etc are all in their original and correct places.

I have cleaned all the contacts.

Also in question 1 I see it mention a little gold clip that seems detrimental to the functionality of the radio reception.

So I don't know if that is actually relevent on i4S or not.

But now I see no further steps I can take, and I still have no phone, and no camera. Wifi works mind you.
