You can try these:

Step 1: Check the connectors of screen whether they loosen or not.

Step 2: If the connectors hold in place, take a good look at the LCD with digitizer flex cables, it is the most vulnerable part. If they have been worn, you have to replace the whole LCD screen with digitizer.

Step 3: If the flex cables are intact, the problems still exist. You need to replace the complete LCD screen with digitizer because the LCD is damaged.
