Touch screen doesn't work!

I purchased a replacement screen for my iPhone 6 Plus from fixit and immediately after replacing the screen the screen i realized the screen kind of flashes at the top of the screen and you have to press the screen in just the right place in order to get the touch screen to work. I already disconnected and connected the connectors and they are connected just fine. I hope i just got a faulty screen and nothing is wrong with the phone. i am worried though, because i had gotten a replacement screen from a local repair shop and the touch screen only worked for about a week and then the screen got very glitchy touch screen wise. i hope it isn't anything to do with my phone, as it is out of warranty, and i don't have lots of money to get a new phone.

i looked for any "banana'd" connectors, and the touch screen connector was slightly... well... banana'd. i pushed on it gently to straighten it out again and tried reconnecting the connectors to the logic board. No luck. touch screen still doesn't respond and top of the screen flashes.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!! I called Ifixit and they are sending a new screen. it that fixes the problem i will let you guys know.

This is a belated answer so hopefully it can be of use to folks who search for and find this question.

Touch Disease is a common failure on the iPhone 6 Plus.

At first, the phone will typically develop intermittent touch control failure. For some phones, a gray/white bar starts appearing at the top of the screen. Twisting and applying pressure in certain spots sometimes allows touch control to work for a short period of time, but eventually, the touch interface ceases to function entirely. This is colloquially known as Touch Disease. You can look at my profile for a link to a blog article on Touch Disease or search the web for more info.

This is not a DIY repair. Look for a repair shop that can do micro-soldering repairs to properly diagnose and repair your problem.
