What is the purpose of the spring near the rear camera
The 4th gen. Ipod touch that I am working on repairing has an issue with the spring that is located beside the rear facing camera. It is has been stretch out, and probably should be replaced.
I have been looking for information on what purpose the spring serves as well as for replacement information. I have been unable to find an information regarding this spring. Several sites reference it, but do not tell what is purpose is or if there is a replacement.
Thank you in advance for any information regarding these questions.
