iPhone 7 Boot Loop issue with Front Camera/Proximity sensor/Ear Piece Flex

I have an iphone 7 that is stuck in a bootloop after screen replacement. Ive narrowed it down to the proximity/front camera/earpiece flex. When its disconnected phone powers up fine but when reconnected goes straight back into bootloop again. Have tried replacing flex cable twice with no luck so figure its a mainboard issue?

This is an issue that seems to exist quite frequently. I personally don't know how to fix it but maybe @danj or @mayer could give it a shot. Sorry I couldn't help more.

Sorry guys I'm not a iPhone hardware guru. Maybe Minho @refectio or Rany @rany can give you an answer.

@danj Sorry to bother you! I figured you'd know.

Ideally, you have to try a known-good FCAM flex. Small parts can be hit or miss, especially for something as new as an iPhone 7. If you don't have access to a known-good part, then the logic board needs to be verified to try and eliminate something.

What's probably happening is that one of those elements (CAM/PROX/ALS) of the circuit is defective. Once the flex is connected, it may be drawing too much current and forcing the some other power rails into current limiting mode. This will have to be looked at by a micro-solderer.

I had same issue. I believe that they key to resolving issue is to make sure that the front facing camera flex cable isn’t folded or bent incorrectly. I adjusted the flex cable to proper positioning and issue went away.

I would try a complete assembly from a working phone, if available. In other words, try with a known good complete assembly. Sometimes new ones are bad too like mentioned by others here.

Also make sure you are connecting it in the correct orientation.

Finally, connect the front cam assembly without plugging the home button extension cable onto the board, see if that changes anything.

Only if using a known good assembly in the correct orientation yields the same result, can you then conclude that you have a board level problem.

Note: continuous boot looping may cause data corruption. Pull a back-up before testing any further.

I have same problem, after desconnected homebutton front facing camera work and phone boot. What have front facing camera flex and homebutton conjucted?

Probably a data line. Haven't had time to check the schematics.

You can try a different screen just to make sure the issue is not due to the Home Button extension cable built into the replacement screen.

I had struggled with this problem but found a different issue that solved my troubles, there is a screw that sits above the front camera housing on the screen. See yellow circle in the attached image. This was missing in the new screen. once replaced the phone booted up straight away.

I had issues with sensorflex as well, first replacement resulted in bootloop, second replacement, no speaker, no proximity

I just fixed these two sensorflex by re-soldering the contacts under the sticker, the factory soldering was bad, even on the flex that I pulled from the original phone

Also the proximity frame on the new display “OEM quality” did not align with the sensor “eyes”
