I wonder if you ever got this resolved? I am trying to restore an old ipod mini and have the same issue.

So, as soon as you press the menu or center button, it resets? Sounds more like a logic board problem. (Have you tried restoring it in iTunes?)

Daniel Korzhenevich -

yeah, tried that a number of times. also have swapped out the hard drive for a cf card with sd card in it and still get the same issue.

I guess it must be the logic board as I can power it on by holding the menu button. With the original hard drive in, it just does nothing when I press buttons and with the cf card in, it resets as soon as I press anything.

It’s a real shame as its such a nice piece of hardware and I love to restore faulty gear back to working order.

Interestingly enough, it does work fine if I dock it on my stereo or ipod dock and I can move around the menus using that remote. Maybe it will just live in my basement docked on an old speaker I have down there.
