Can you see the Apple logo when you are turning the device on while holding a flashlight to it? If so, the it would be your sceeen or the backlight fuse. I would double check to make sure all the connection are tight and not loose or misaligned. If that's all good, I would try a new screen then. This would be a cheaper fix. If the new screen doesn't work, then I would start to look at the motherboard.

Let me know how the new screen does for you. Have you tested the new battery you purchased to make sure it is all good?

the new battery worked fine i got it 5 days ago and it worked with the old screen before it stopped working. i tend to turn my phone off and remove the screen instead of taking out the battery i didnt know i had to do that.
