Could be a faulty camera you bought i have had this many times. If not have you tried restoring? Just for the sake of it? Are you 100% you bought it for the correct device? Etc. there are many reasons why this could go wrong. Make sure you follow tutorials exactly, to see where your going wrong.

hmhm maybe it is a faulty camera? if someone at a repair shop is still not able to install the camera correctly it might just be the hardware

what do u mean by installing camera correctly,as far i know there is no need of rocket science in installing it, just one cable attached to camera and a screw, correctly me if m wrong, and what are you saying about hardware , which part should it be, if it some I.C or something else do tell, coz when i asked to that mobile repairing center they said that they need to have board of 3g, which they don't have right now, he said if i can tell him whats the problem is actually(which I.C or something else), then he can help me.

Maybe the connector on the motherboard is damaged?If I helped you in any way, please click on the button!

so is that connector is changeable or not?

If it's the camera flex connector cable that is damaged then it is easily replaceable. If it's the motherboard's connector for the camera that is damaged then it's a lot harder to repair (at that point I would get a new phone if you need the camera function).If I helped you in any way, please click on the button!

hmmm ok i got that, but i was wondering aint there anyway to change that particular slot where camera flex is attached on MB, if its possible then i guess i can manage it at some cheap cost.

That would mean a complete reconstruction of the phone's internal parts; it is how it is.If I helped you in any way, please click on the button!

ohk so i suppose that connector on MB is not repairable, now i think all i have to do is to buy new MB or a New iPhone
