Wheel randomly activates all on its own!

So my 4th Gen iPod nano randomly adjusts volume and moves along menus by it self.

Before I decide to buy a replacement wheel I'd like to know if that would fix it.

Any help is appreciated.

Billy Cole,

A new click wheel is a cheap way to start and it sounds like that is all you need from your description. The issue is it is a Nano 4th! The issue with the 4th and 5th gen's is the tolerances are so tight and the ribbon cables are so fragile and small they tend to get torn off. Go very very slow and careful! Follow the guide here:

I can't express it enough so I'll say it again - very very slow and careful! If you haven't done repairs on these before I would suggest you take it to a professional.
