Confused SERIOUS Lock Button and Home Button Issues.

Earlier today I noticed my Admire's home button wasn't working so I turned my phone off and then it started right back up automatically. Soo I thought.. hmmm... thats strange... then when it loaded back up the screen would cut out and power off then power on, so i pulled the battery and booted into recovery and realized that I couldnt do anything because the home button wouldn't work. So I just rebooted and it loaded fine except the home button still wasnt working and every time i touched the lock/power button the long press menu would pop up and eventually the phone would power cycle again all on its own. Eventually the home button started working so i booted back into recovery and restored from a previous back up but when i loaded back up, still no luck.

Can anybody help me out here please? Has anyone seen this before?

Seeing how this is a hardware issue there isn't much we can do. You would have to get a replacement or buy a new phone. If you want to continue using the phone then the app Button Savior will do the job
