Have you tried a brainwipe. To set it back to factory settings?   
Procedure should be to press reset button and hold down power key till  
dialog window opens asking if you want to erase all data If you agree  
it will confirm then proceed.
If this doesn't fix it then it is as you suspected a hardware issue.

Good luck
