    I've changed a few batteries but on this iPhone, after a fresh battery the camera does not work! Everything else is good, I've restored & it still doesn't work. I'm almost positive I reassembled it correctly, I'm thinking it must be where the camera plugs into the motherboard on the back. How do u know when that connection is on good, since u cant see it. What do u guys do, feel it snap in when u place the motherboard in? Or is there a trick or some way to confirm that the camera is properly connected to the back of the mother"FN"board? Lol, thx!

    This was my first problem I encountered refurbishing my own phone.
    In the end i realized I broke the connection on the camera and needed to replace it!
    What you need to do is attach the camera to the board, then place the board into the housing.
    Once the board is in nice, press the camera module down into it's socket.

    Hope this helps!

    DOH!!!!! That is an excellent idea, thanks dude! I'll try that way in the morning, I hope I didn't damage anything trying to get the connecters on by pushing down on the motherboard. I'll let u know how it goes, asap.

    LOL, that worked perfect! I fixed the camera in 15 minutes, thanks for the suggestion. Luckily, I didn't cause any damage trying to push the motherboard on to the camera connecter like a NOOB!
