This is a simple fix but maybe not what you would like to hear. If your having touch issue or ghost touch, then your going to need a new screen on your iPhone. If certain buttons do not touch in the same specific spot then it sounds like you have some flex cable damage or LCD damage on your screen. Here is a link to purchase the parts and also the repair guide:

You can try that, but what makes you think that the cable connection would need cleaning? Did you get your phone wet? There really isn't any other reason why those connectors would need to be cleaned. As for your screen not being broken...the glass is much more flexible than the digitizer. The faint line is an indicator of a broken digitizer, which is what senses your touch. It's very common for people that carry their phone in their back pocket to have this type of damage.
