Does anyone know exactly what to replace?

Uhms, I had a similar issue like that years ago while I had Applecare. The comment the 'genius' gave me was the logic board had a failure and they gave me a 'new' phone.

At that time they told me to:

1. Plug the phone to my mac.

2. Press and hold power + home until the phone shut down and rebooted.

3. On DFU to restore a backup or something.

But you have done this already. Have you taken it to the store?
