Default [Q] S3 i9300 Camera Failed

Hi everyone,
I'm posting here because I think that XDA is the place where I will get most usefull answers.
Few days ago, I tried to take a picture (as all days) but the camera app crashed.
I tried another one, but it crashed too : could not connect to camera, or anything like this...

I tried everything : full wipe, kernel change, rom change, stock rom, nothing worked...
A friend gave me the permission to disassembly his S3 :
I plugged his camera module on my motherboard : didn't worked
I plugged my camera module on his motherboard : worked...

When i'm on a stock rom and i want to launch the tool that give us informations about the firmware of the camera it crash too...

I'm going to become crazy with that...

Does anyone see anything that I forgot ?...
Thanks in advance, and sorry for my bad english...

You are by any chance using stock 4.3 ROM..
If you are using then I think you should flash a stock kernel then open camera and take a pic and then flash kernel of your choice..
You mentioned that you changed kernels but did you flash any stock kernels if not you should try this...
