Why does my iPhone 5s stay frozen on the booting up screen?

So a few days ago I went to get my screen repaired as I dropped my phone a few days prior. After I took my phone to be repaired and left it with the fixers, I came back and they had already removed the screen and they realized they had no screens to replace it with. So due to this issue, I took the phone back with me despite them saying that the display may not work properly. Due to how long it takes to drive there I found a closer place and had my screen repaired. The fixer told me to give it a good charge once I got home. I have done that and my IPhone 5S is still stuck on the booting up screen, (the pure white screen with the Apple logo in the center.) which the phone had been stuck on after I went to the first place. After doing the hard reset or whatever reset where you hold the sleep/power button and home button for 10 seconds it gave me the same screen but the problem was it gave me a flash of a red screen then either went to a black screen or presented the boot-up screen again..

Is there a problem that I should get seen to as soon as I can?

Is it a problem with a component?

My guess is that the first store that opened it up somehow damaged the front camera flex. You would need to unplug the front camera flex after unplugging the battery then plug the battery back in and try turning it on again.

That may explain the red screen flashing then off issue during boot up loop.

Follow up to step 19 of these guide then go reverse to test (Not necessary but unplugging the front camera flex then plugging battery back in works as well.):

Try putting your iphone into recovery mode, Connect your phone to your computer and use iTunes, then try restore from a back up if you had one, or restore a fresh installation of iOS. Hope that helps.

I've had my phone connected to my computer all night, I opened iTunes and I looked at connected devices, My phone is nowhere to be seen, It's not being detected at all, No issues with the charger, I've tried 3 different ones and i've tried 2 computers...
