Hi,

On this model the digitizer and LCD screen are fused together. Its hard to separate without damaging the parts. This is why we strongly recommend the full screen replacement which can be found here - HTC One S Screen Replacement

Are there any less expensive LCD+digitizer screens available anywhere? $130 is absurdly expensive - I can buy a brand new Nexus phone for just a little more.

Sounds like a flex cable or a jawbone connection is not connected . Take the phone apart again. Re-Check all the connections and reassemble the phone again. See if that fixes the problem. Most of the time is something very small.
