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?

ANSWERS:

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*.
