Why is my iPhone 4s screen fading in and out

I have a question I have a problem with my iphone 4s ok it had got water damaged. after about a week of none use, i turned it on first the phone started over heating so I replaced the battery, then the screen started like flickering and going in and out and fading out. So i replaced the screen. everything was fine accept the front camera stop working I replaced the front camera, I let the phone go dead before charging the battery for 6 hours, then I realized my loud speaker wasn't working I replaced it. so now my problem is the screen fades in and out while trying to charge it, but when I i unplug the battery and plug the charger straight to the phone the screens comes on and works just fine. also my battery connector broke off do you think I could need a new battery connector or a new battery?

teze, you are not telling us if you cleaned it. I most certainly would suggest that you start with that. Use this guide to clean your iPhone. It was written for a 3G but all the points apply to your phone as well. These guides will help you disassemble your phone. Check for broken, missing or charred components. Once it is properly cleaned, replace the battery, right after you fix your battery connector. Then re-evaluate for any residual damage. " when I i unplug the battery and plug the charger straight to the phone the screens comes on and works just fine" tells you that it is not your LCD or your display circuitry, but your power circuit. Hope this helps, good luck.
