Rear camera and flash don't work

Greetings! First post here.

Recently, while in the dark, I noticed that my flashlight (camera flash) on my iPhone 5S was no longer working when activated from the control center. I then began to debug it by rebooting, resetting and then finally by upgrading from iOS8 to iOS9. None of these fixed my problems but during the investigation, I noticed that the rear camera was no longer working as well. After some internet searching I do not really have a clear idea of whats wrong, as such, is why I am here.

This is something that I would like to try and fix myself if possible but would like some ideas of what else could be wrong here and if there are any additional debug steps. After hopefully identifying the problem, I will likely need to purchase the part(s) and doing the repair... so any thoughts or advice here would be welcome as well.

Thanks in Advance.

Quit out of any app that can access the iPhone camera – things like Camera, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Afterlight, etc

Flip the iPhone over and apply very slight pressure against the physical camera hardware using a finger, it may depress slightly indicating this loose camera issue

Now try to use the Camera app as usual (from lock screen access, or third party app is fine), it should work fine now and take pictures as usual

So, a malfunctioning camera, no camera apps are working, and loose physical camera hardware on the iPhone? That clearly indicates a hardware issue, and whether or not it impacts many iPhone 5 users is not entirely clear.

The first time this happened I tried this and it worked fine. However my camera went back to being unfocused and the flash didn't work again the next day and I tried this and it hasn't worked?

If you have already tried to update the software and this did not work, you will most likely need to replace the camera unit, follow this guide for the Rear Camera Unit

Not particularly a hard repair to do, just be careful when pulling it apart

Best of luck

Regards

I had a similar problem with my i5S. The flashlight stopped working. The camera was fine. But, I still don't know why my flashlight stopped working

por

My understanding is that the camera and the flash LED are not in the same part/cable on the 5s as they were with the iPhone 5... If this is the case, it's not clear to me how fixing the camera will fix the flash.

por

The iPhone 5S camera can some times cause the Flash to not work, after a replacement camera the flash should work with it

por

This is awesome information. I will be ordering a camera asap and will report back.

I have the exact same problem recently. It started on snapchat so I deleted then redone loaded it but it still didn't work. Then I tried my camera and it worked facing my way but shots in front of me seemed to stop and the screen was black. Just now I discovered the flash doesn't work either and I don't know what to do.

I think I had some water trouble but the only effect is the rear camera worked intermittently and the flash stopped altogether. However, I replaced the camera and the entire ribbon assembly that has the flash, and there was no improvement. Is there a certain chip on the logic board that is focused on the camera and flash control?

This solution worked for me, press the camera with your fingers hard enough that you will not break the screen, close the camera app, restart or reset all settings. I open an iPhone once and camera is plugged with a notch so it could perfectly unplug or near to it.
