Thanks. That was my first thought. Since it is clearly a circuit path problem, I thought I would open it up and first look for any cold solder joints, then corrosion on anything, and then just clean...

I know your post is four months old, but I figure I should respond because my S9 did indeed suffer a failure of the same switch.

The spring in the switch failed on the "back" side so it just sits...

I'm thinking of buying a replacement for my older S9 and I also noted that the X7 had a 160gb HDD (nice!) but was discontinued.

The thing is, I was happy to get away from a physical HDD in my X5L...

X5 weird "electrical" behaviour

Short story: Bought my X5L/32gb brand new (way back when) and loved it.
Time goes on... Battery needed replacement so it went back to Cowon for service. Got it back and continued to use it, but then...

Nope. No Ipod will ever be built with Ogg and Flac capability, so I see no Ipods in my future.

It was not, and never will be, a mistake for me to do all my recordings and rips using Ogg or Flac....

The IAudio 7 is almost perfect as per your requirements except for a 16mb maximum available size.

But because the '7 does nothing other than music, 16mb is more than enough to load up a couple...

That at least sounds like a logical reason. And if so, Darkside points out that obvious reason why it's not implemented.

No Jet Audio or Other Audio Effects with S9 Tuner?

It appears that, while the Jet Effect and other Audio tweakers built into the S9 work great with playing music files, none of the audio effects seem to have any effect when playing the FM radio...

To just say that "the sound" is better on the S9 is extreme oversimplification.

The reason why it's better is because YOU get to design it exactly the way that YOU want.

You might consider ripping into OGG.

I did lots of listening, and found that I couldn't really tell any difference between the huge FLAC files and upper-end MP3, and better yet, OGG files.

Ahh, yes, I didn't actually say it but I'm sure that you figured out what I rip to by my signature. :D

Probably 90% of what's on my player are OGG's, and the remaining 10% are FLAC's.

I actually do see the horizontal lines that are circled, but they look more to me like they are coming from the software rather than a burn-in kind of thing.
