He said that it wouldn't cut on all the time, but he seemed to indicate that
the problem didn't happen very often. The biggest reason he sold it was that
the headphone jack was broken.

The battery is fine, I think. Usually after it stops working, it will start
again without me having to charge it, so I don't think it is depleted or
anything. The connector thing is a possibility. I've also noticed something
which may be a coincidence, but about half the time that it will not turn
on, holding the off button for 8 seconds and then hitting On again has
started it up. Like I said though, not sure if that's a coincidence or
something real going on.
