How can I be sure about that? Because I have the same problem as Snyf, and I bought a camera module, but nothing happened and the problem is still existing. So because I’m really desapointed for buying a camera module for nothing and because it is quite expensive, I would like to be sure if I buy the top module it will work.
By the way is it possible to send you back the camera module I bought and to be refunded?
If you can’t switch cameras that usually means the camera you can’t switch to is not connected well. So #disassemble the phone and take out the camera module (main camera) or top module (selfie camera) and clean the connectors.
I did but it didn’t work. The selfie camera won’t show up in the default camera but it does in an other app - but it stays black. I just bought the new front camera and put it in and a new display. I had trouble with the selfie camera before though.
I guess then the new top module you got is broken, or - since you say you had similar issues before - maybe the main module’s connection to the top module. Do you happen to live near any of the #localcommunities? They can help you find out which module is broken by swapping modules around.
I had the same problem. My solution: I disassembled my FP2 with the new top module and put in the old top module. restarted the phone. the front camera switch appeared again. then I disassembled my FP2 again. and put the new top module in again. restarted the phone. this time the phone recognized the new top module.
Sounds stupid, but it worked in my case. Maybe give it a shot. Hope it works!
