I can only *assume* that the device is defective or may have water damage of some sort, especially if you bought the phone used. If you live near an Apple Store, make a genius bar appointment to have them diagnose the problem for you.

Try leaving it charge over night they have a feature called rapid charge which as the name suggest charge it fast but not necessarily a full charge even though it says it's full, 8 that don't work bring it back to apple store immediately
