Home Button Issue! Wife is about to break it

My wife has an iPhone 4. Sometimes when she's trying to go back to the home screen, the home button doesn't work. She has to bang the phone on her knee a couple of times to get it to work.

Could this be the contacts inside?

It is possible there is a connection problem. I would also check to see if her phone is updated to the most recent software version.

Sometimes a software update will fix an erratic home button.

Fixed the problem! Plugged in the USB to the phone and lifted up. Great tip by one of the iFixit users!
