I have the Ipod model MA079LL, 20GB color display one that it does not want to turn-on at all and sometimes it does. The battery is fully charged. Sometimes when it turns on, it is empty, no songs show up, then sometimes the music is there. It is acting really creazy. Couple of time gave me a sad iPod icon with the apple support url. Right now came to live and it is working fine. But this behavior has been happing for a while. What do you recommend? I am going today to an apple store to check.

When an ipod battery is flat it needs to be charged for a while before it will turn on. Depending on how flat the battery is it may take up to half an hour. If the battery is too old it may not be able to hold a charge at all.
You need to charge the battery, either by using an adapter to connect it to a wall socket and plug, or by using the supplied usb connector and leaving your computer on long enough for the ipod battery to fully charge...

This can be caused by the audio jack, if it doesn't sit tight anymore, the headphone becomes disconnected for small periods of time causing the iPod to detect the headphone as unplugged, hence it will pause. If you're out of warranty you can send it to a third party iPod Repair Service.
