iPhone X cameras and flashlight don't work after drop
My 1-year-old got a hold of my wife’s iPhone X and dropped it onto hard tile and now her front and rear cameras just show black and the flashlight will no longer turn on. It all was working before the drop. She has it in a case with a screen protector and it only fell from child standing height, so I’m not sure what could have rattled loose. We did try rebooting the phone a few times with no luck. Tonight I opened it up with my iFixIt kit, but I didn’t see anything obviously broken. The only sign of damage is a hairline crack on the rear camera module between the flash and the edge. I unplugged all the ribbon cables and re-seated them. The phone still boots up just fine and everything else works including FaceID, but still no cameras or flash. Could this be some other cable I’m missing that rattled loose, or maybe a crack in a PCB? I’m also wondering if a new rear camera module would fix it. Thanks for any thoughts.

UPDATE: FaceID was working, but now it says it has disabled itself due to a problem. We have already replaced the phone, so I may dig a little deeper without fear of totally killing it :)
UPDATE 2: I did a hard reset (volume up then down then power hold). Now FaceID works again as well as the front camera. The rear camera and flash are the only non-working parts now. I might go ahead and try replacing the camera.
That's a piece of good news, keep us posted on the outcome, it's always useful info.
FINAL UPDATE: I replaced the rear-facing camera with a new one (from iFixIt), and it worked like a charm! Everything is once again fully operational. It's crazy how a busted camera can cause so many symptoms.
It can happen when a component gets smashed that it gets internally shorted and jams the relevant lines it's connected to. Good to know everything works now :)
