Replaced battery and harddrive but still gives sad face and reboots.
Even after replacing the harddrive and the battery it (5th gen iPod) still goes through the reboot cycle with the light grey apple then on to the sad face, the only thing left is the motherboard but am reluctant to replace since they are 70 dollars, but if needed will replace that also.
