Hey everybody,

I recently got a batch of ipod mini parts that I wanted to try out but I noticed something wierd. I put together an ipod mini with all working parts, board/hd/headphone jack/battery etc.. And it works great out of the case. I can sync etc.. Then when I put it back into the case and attach the click wheel it doesnt turn on. I did a few tests and found out that whenever I attached the clickwheel, the ipod would shut off! Kind of weird, so I did an internet search but never came across any good info. If any DIYer has ever encountered this or knows a way to fix a problem, please drop me a line.

Thanks,
Paul

also, make sure the ribbon is aligned perfectly straight. if it's a little crooked, the ribbon shorts some pins which could cause that..
