    My iPhone 5 rear camera does not flash. I've replaced the rear camera module w/ flash, but still no flash. When I lightly tap the top of my phone near the camera lens/LED light, I can hear a rattle sound, even before I had replaced it. Any thoughts?

    The rattle is normal, it's part of the camera optics system.

    Does the flashlight feature work? If so, the light itself is fine. You're sure you gave flash turned on in the camera app?

    Flashlight feature, nope, doesn't work:( As far as the flash being on in the camera app itself, yes. It doesn't work in either Auto or On mode. This is strange. Even after replacing the module, it's not working. I wonder if it has something to do with the motherboard??
