IPod Touch 5th Gen: Front Camera Broken?

Hi! Hope you're all having nice days! I have a fifth generation iPod Touch. It's updated to iOS7, and even up to 7.1.1. But sometime shortly before iOS7 even came out, my front camera suddenly stopped working. I don't recall dropping the iPod before

Hi! Hope you're all having nice days!
I have a fifth generation iPod Touch. It's updated to iOS7, and even up to 7.1.1. But sometime shortly before iOS7 even came out, my front camera suddenly stopped working. I don't recall dropping the iPod before the incident or anything like that. But I was hoping someone here could help me.
I've had this problem for at least half a year now, and I've read through countless threads and ideas, and I've tried just about everything to fix my front camera, but nothing seems to work.
I've tried soft resets, resetting my whole iPod, installing other camera apps, pressing down where the wires might have disconnected, and even calling Apple support.
I read an idea about taking the iPod apart and reconnecting the wires that someone theorised might have split, but I'm not sure how that would have even happened with my iPod.
I'd really just like some idea of what to do before I try to dismantle my iPod and potentially damage it even further.
If it's any further clarification, the screen has no cracks, the front camera is not covered, and my iPod has not been jailbroken or anything like that.
Thank you so much, and hope you have a nice day.

Hello again.
Sorry to bump this topic, but upon seeing the staggering amount of views this question has received and the numerous other threads people have made in regards to this same issue, I was wondering if someone could tell me if Apple has developed any remedy to this frequent problem.
If the the only reply is still to take my out-of-warranty iPod to the Genius Bar and have them tell me to either pay for a new warranty or to purchase a new iPod/phone, please keep in mind that I am looking to repair my iPod. Not replace. Especially when this is a well-known problem of Apple products. Unfortunately, I have even heard of this problem in the 5C models, and that really makes the upgrade not worth it.
If there are any developments in a method to fix the problem at hand, please do help to inform the public.
Here's to hoping someone has good news and that everyone has/is having a very lovely holiday.
Thank you for your time and help.
