After a lot of useuse, the board/clickwheel loosens up and creatingcreates some form of unstable contact, acontact. A solution iI found is by addingto add a firm backing to it. iI did this by inserting a piece of thin plastic (thina thin old credit card would do) between the board and the aluminum casing on the bottom end of the iPod.

Hope this workworks for you guys.'' GOODLUCKguys. GOOD LUCK!
