    I was replacing the screen on my lumia 1520, and accidentally pinched a wire on the front facing camera. Really easy to replace aside from this and fussing with the battery.

    So, now when I launch camera and select front camera it quits and returns to the apps list. I opened it up and wiggled things a bit, now it just opens to a black screen.

    Has anyone experienced this? any suggestions?

    the how to vids on youtube are informative, however they do not ever remove the front camera. I have seen a couple of sites that sell the part. Thus my question. how is it removed from the main board? Can it be repaired?
