Question about Cell Phones
Phone is hard to open, thought it was supposed to be easy touch. Have to press hard to open, sometimes up to 3 times or more. some apps are the same way. When I try to use phone, it goes blank on me. Is this normal?
Doubtful, do you have a screen protector on it? Those can interfere with the touch screen (digitizer). If the phone is acting sluggish you may want consider performing a factory reset on it or look into which apps are using the most battery life and try removing some of them as they may be causing the issue.

is there the "calendar" and "contacts" menu buttons on the bottom of the black screen?
that's what would happen to me. i just turned off the touchFLO 3D on the today screen (by going to settings, then today screen options) and it seems to not go black anymore... even after being untouched for hours.
not sure if the same thing is happening to you, but it worked for me.

If you are technically minded, yes, you will be able to do this yourself. Otherwise you need a technical person to do it for you.
I assume you are technical. This is what you should do:-
1. You should have the replacement touch screen handy (You should have bought a new touch screen).
2. Remove battery, memory card, sim card etc.
3. Unscrew the screws holding the casing/(housing of the phone) to the panel.
4. Then with object like a knife, position the edge gently between where the lower and upper parts of the casing contact/(close up) and pry open.
5. You will see where you can disconnect the touch screen from the panel. Gently detach from the panel. Connect the new one and reassemble.

Testimonial: "Thank you very very much for your help! In the first place i didn't want to take the casing apart, afraid that i easely could damage parts inside."
there is a hardware issue. Apple should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it and camera module. If that fails you need a new logic board. You can get the part on Ebay or at iPhone Repair and there is a free guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.

two things probably 1 the "flex" cable connecting the phone's lcd unit to the main board is broken or ripped or even slightly twisted more than it shud have been
or 2 the lcd unit as whole is bad with a minor problem(inclusive of problems to connector joints)
what u cud do at this point is send it a service center... unless u want to open the device which i would say is a pure risk u d be taking... claim any warranty if needs be...
