Touchscreen does not work while on charge

I bought a 5s off of eBay for $20, not turning on or booting. I replaced that battery and dock connector, and it worked great. The touchscreen was fine and everything worked perfect. When I put it on charge though, the touchscreen is glitchy, touching apps will bring down the search bar and the scroll on safari is all messed up. When I take it off charge it works great tho. Any ideas?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It seems to be the new charging port. When you charge the phone, thats when it activates the charging port the most. I would try reconnecting the charging port and battery connector and turn it on again to test the charger. If thats not the case than it must be a screen issue that was caused by the previous owner.

Before going to all the work doing that, it also is worth seeing how well it works charging it using a different charging cable and/or wall adapter. Sometimes a cheaply made charger can interfere with the display's functionality. If it's not that though, it likely is something with the display, or the new charging port.
