Can you fix a iphone x where the front cameras works perfectly but the face id doesn't work. The iphone x had water damage but got that cleaned and fixed

Hi Danny, we etradesupply don’t repair cellphone, we sell phone repair parts. There are many reasons lead to the iPhone X Face ID not work, the dot projector, the sensor flex cable ..etc Did you replaced any parts of the phone when fixing it?

No there were no parts changed they only cleaned the phone. All other options are working with the front camera but faceid doesn’t even start up

Try to delete the Face ID and add it again.
