iTouch 4th generation front and rear camera replacement
Il Mio Problema
After replacing the LCD screen the cameras remained in the closed shutter placement. I tried all the suggestions to fix the problem and they did not work so I felt the only other option was to replace the cameras and see if it did the trick.
La Mia Riparazione
The repair went well. It is a difficult replacement more for the rear camera than the front but I completed the replacement and it corrected my problem. It took me about 4 hours (I took breaks when I got frustrated). I wish I had someone to take pictures. I looked quite funny with a knife in my mouth, flashlight on the table tweezers in one hand and holding the mother board with the other while trying to line up the cable with the "plug". I have only replaced screens up to this point and did not want to attempt removing the mother board, which would have made the repair so much easier.
Il Mio Consiglio
Unfortunately, I am the one who needs to be enlightened. I am sure there is a easier way to replace these but I got the job done and it works!! I drive a school bus and was repairing this iTouch for a student. This is the third repair for students on my bus (like I said, they have been LCD or just the replacement glass). Still the repair was less expensive than replacing the 4th generation 32g iTouch. Both mom and student were happy!
