hi, my iPhone had a very sad bend on the main frame so after watching a few YouTube clips I decided to have ago at bending it back.
i removed the LCD touch screen and very carefully straightened the frame with a wooden jig I made. Which successfully restored my frame to near perfect condition. 
After rebuliding it I switched on the phone and found everything was ok. That was until the next day when I came to use the main rear camera. The screen was blank but switched to the front camera fine, but when switching back a message came up saying "flash disabled & needs to cool down before use" also I have discovered the flash light doesn't now work. Any ideas please? ( I have rechecked the ribbons from the screen to make sure contacts are pushed home & all seems good)

did you take the logic board out of the frame before doing your repair? Also, how bad was this 'bend' prior to repair? There's probably a strong chance that the logic board has been damaged due to the bending somewhere along the line.

Hi thanks for your reply, no I didn't remove the logic board only the LCD display. Are the boards expensive & difficult to replace?
i was going to try a new camera but do you think this wont work?

The bend was fairly bad but everything worked ok before I bent it back in place.

6+ boards are well known for bend problems.
They are reasonably easy to replace. Are they expensive? - depends what you define as expensive but it's the brains of the phone and the most expensive part in it.
Also don't forget that your home button touch ID is tied into your logic board so replacing the board will remove touch function unless you can get the matching home button with the replacement board.
I would agree that the problem is more likely to be board related than anything else and the cheapest solution may well be getting your board repaired.
