Hello, I am John Cappucci, Computer Science Engineer. I will be happy to help you.

Please reset the iPhone. To reset it, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for 10 or more seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

If you get the message "slide to power off" ignore it. Just wait until the Apple logo appears.

Please watch this video:

Please let me know if the issue is solved or no, so we can continue troubleshooting
