iPod turns on, goes to Apple logo, then cuts off
I turn my iPod on and I hear some odd clicking noises and then screen comes on and shows the Apple logo. I wait a couple seconds, then it cuts off and the hard drive spins down. I've done this many times with the same results. I tried diagnostic mode, but before it even finishes the first test, it cuts off. I suspect it's either the logic board or hard drive, but I'm not sure which. Can someone help?
My ipod 5th gen turns on to my home screen then it flicks off to the apple logo how do I fix it ?
Posting this as a reference: I was having this issue while attempting to power an iPod from an alternative power source by directly powering it via the battery connector (since I have a dead battery for now) and it was driving me crazy thinking I damaged some circuitry. The iPod will do that if it detects under-voltage (even if minimal, since it expects to be run from a Lithium battery). So make sure your supply is providing 3.7V *under load*.
