    I’m assuming you used a 3rd party screen to replace the original? If so and you don’t have the original to reinstall, your out of luck. Apple is the only one that can repair the faceid camera and they won’t touch the phone with 3rd party parts installed. The faceid camera is paired to the logic board for security reasons and there’s no way to replace it and have faceid work again by any 3rd party repair shop.

    YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT IN EVERYTHING YOU WROTE AND THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO ANSWER AND HELP ME. SO IT HAPPENS HOWEVER THAT I HAVE THE ORIGINAL SCREEN. DO YOU THINK IF I REINSTALL IT AND SEND IT TO APPLE WILL THEY SHORT EVERYTHING OUT?

    PS. APPLE HAS ASKED FOR 650 EUROS PER SCREEN CHANGE. TWO TIME MY SCREEN HAS BROKEN SO YOU CAN IMAGINE I COULD HAVE BOUGHT A NEW ONE. THE AMOUNT IS EXTREMELY HIGH. THAT IS WHY I FOUND ANOTHER PARTY TO REPLACE THE SCREEN. MOREOVER THE FIRST TIME I REPLACED IT THE FRONT CAMERA WAS WORKING. SECOND TIME THE PROBLEM OCCURED. HOW UNLUCKY AM I !!!!?????

    Install the original screen and send it in for repair. You have nothing to lose...

    Yes! Definitely reinstall the old screen and send it to Apple. You really have no other option unless your willing to use the phone without Faceid..
