iPhone 5s Rear Facing Camera Replacement

20 - 45 minutes


My Problem

Girlfriend's iPhone 5s' rear camera stopped working one day, plain and simple.

My Fix

I did the main steps of turning it off and back on as well as resetting the phone, but still so success. After receiving the replacement and finally sitting down to fix it, it took me less than 10 mins to get inside and find the problem. I asked her if anything else had not been working as well and she explained the the flashlight hadn't worked either since the incident. Come to find out, I was too excited to order a new part and take her phone apart to ask what had actually happened; she had dropped her phone a few weeks back and in the process the ribbon connecting the Rear Camera was dislodged causing the camera and flash to stop working. I reconnected it screwed everything back together and BLAM, everything was perfect!! I told her it was a tough job but I managed to get it fixed so all is good. I don't have the heart to tell her how easy it was, more or less because I'm embarrassed for my mistakes.

My Advice
