Why is the screen white and dead?

My iPhone 3G from 2009 died while being power loaded. after a day connected to electric power, I got a glimpse of a battery with a red line left side. Like it was totally out of power.

Then nothing. black screen.

New attempt - connected to power source - (not computer, but electricity) - the screen turned whit.

Thats it. it is lying there - connected - but just white.

Do I need a new battery or maybe a new front assembly ?

Hi Lisa. From what you've described it seems you might need a new Display Assembly. Here's the link to the Display Assembly. Good luck!
