    Basic troubleshooting from the User's Guide is reset, restart, restore (first from backup then as new).  Try each of these in order until the issue is resolved.

    i have done those in all that order. i am wondering if when on the ios is thinking the home button is always being pressed cause when powered on when plugged in it goes to restore but when powered on with out being plugged in it boots just fine. i think i am going to order a whole screen assembly and a camera and replace them to see if it changes it.

    If a restore as new has not resolved, take the device to Apple for evaluation and possible replacement.

     

    Personally, I would not pay the $149 for Out of Warranty replacement or buy parts and attempt to repair.  Not when a 4 can be had for free in the US with a new 2yr contract or a 4S for $99 with a 2yr contract.

    i would but i am using mine on straight talk and its worth to try to fix then to buy a newer one with no contract price
