There could be a couple of things here to look out for. Obvisouly, trying a new battery is the first thing to do. The 5S is an old device and the battery may be depleted. If a known-good battery doesn't solve the problem, then I would try to disconnect the FCAM/Sensor Flex as the proximity sensor can cause this type of issue. If disconnecting the flex works, then you can order a new one and replace it.
