Part left over - Camera not working

Hi

I just replaced the front touch screen. Now I have a part left over that I cannot figure out where it goes. I gone through all the videos and pages and cannot find it. It is black with a hole on the upper right side and a folded clip front on the left with a golden end. The rear side is golden completely.

Alternately the camera does not work. I get the closed shutter. I think they are related

Thks for any help

The part you have left over is probably the grounding clip of the top antenna:

Have a look at the display assembly replacement step 19&20

I however can not really find a relation between a non working camera and this clip missing but it is worth a try,

No the grounding clip is much longer and has been properly installed. This clip is about 1/4 the size of the grounding clip. A shame I cannot attach a picture. Thks

Possibly then the clip that goes underneath the battery terminal? Have a look at step 4/5 of the following guide:

Yes, if you have not got it yet. I got one from E bay. It does not have the black coating on the clip, but is identical.
