DOA Pinecil?

And I don't think the power connector is loose, because it works fine in the menus; it only happens when I go to solder.

I tried pulling out and reseating the tip just to confirm that it wasn't the problem--no change.

If the unit is tripping off as soon as you attempt to heat the tip this is most likely a poor power supply or a bad tip.
