Could someone please tell me what part needs replacing?

Hello. I have an iPhone 5s and it is only 8 months old. One night I was listening to my music and the headphones and speakers were working fine. Before I went to bed I plugged it in and it started charging just like it always does. However, the next morning when I woke up I noticed that my speakers had stopped working and my phone did not recognize when I plugged my headphones in, essentially making my phone mute at all times. I could live with this. However, I used my phone all day, and like all phones, it started to die. When I went to plug it in it showed that it was charging and so I walked away. However, when I came back to it about a half hour later it still hadn't charged at all. I needed my phone and so I unplugged it and thought I would figure it out later. But my phone died all the way, I cannot turn it on anymore, and I have left it plugged in, says its charging, over night but it still will not turn on. I took it to the local Apple store to get a replacement and they told me my warranty was voided because of unauthorized tampering even though I have never opened my phone up. Anyways, I really need to fix my phone and I was just wondering if someone could tell me what part needs to be replaced. Is it the battery? Is it the lightning connector? I don't want to start playing around with the inside of my phone if it is not even the part that needs replacing.

Sorry for the long description.

It sounds like the lightning connector. If the connector is corroded or faulty, that can cause the speaker to not works, as it thinks it is connected to something. If you or a friend has a battery you can swap out as a test, that is quick and easy to do, just to rule it out, but based on everything you have said, the lightning port is most likely.
