Front camera not working after logic board replacement

Hi all,

I replaced the logic board of my iPhone XS Max and now the front-facing camera is not working.

I understand that, after replacing the logic board, only FaceID will not work. However, I have never heard that the front-facing camera will not work as well.

In this case, do I have to replace the front-facing camera as well?

I have change the motherboard and housing of my xs max... But after all been set up front camera and taptic engine stop working.. but something strange happens. When the phone is cold while charging the taptic engine works and then stops working...My plan is to change both parts and try to update





I can agree that the face-ID will not work but I couldn’t imaging the front facing camera fully not working if you have another camera try and swap it to see if that makes a difference or try your camera in another XS Max if the camera works in another phone you have a issue with the logic board, but if a new camera works in your phone then it is just the camera that is damaged.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your comment.

Unfortunately, I don't have any spare phone to test this. But I think that it is highly likely that my front-facing camera is broken.


Yeah there is a good chance mate No matter what the issue is with my device i always rule parts problems out first as they are always the easiest to fix & test.

In my opinion.

Let us know if you solve your issue.



Hi there

For feedback, i had the same issue, i moved one motherboard from one xs max to another, and had the front camera problem, then i swapped the part and voilá!
