    Hello cs1870,


    I would be concerned too if my iPod was shutting off after one minute.  I found an article with some steps you can take to address issues like this:


    Constantly restarting

    • Try putting the iPod into disk mode and restoring:
      • Reset the device (press the Sleep and Volume Down buttons simultaneously until the display turns black—about eight seconds).
      • When the display turns black, hold down the Volume Down and Volume Up buttons simultaneously until the device enters Disk mode.
    • While the device is in disk mode, connect it to iTunes and try to restore.
    • Sync to iTunes and try to restore the iPod
