    I have the same problem with Hitachi M12V. The repair depot tells me that the electronic control has to be used regularly or it simply quits. This means, not only does the router have to used, but has to be used at different speeds. Hard to do for a hobby type woodwork.

I would first use compressed air and thoroughly blow thru the vents. Second I would take out the brushes they have a black cap over them and after removing wipe them off with a clean rag and reinstall. Look at the cord for cracks in outer jacket. Plug in and try again. If this doesn't work UNPLUG tool and turn collet nut by hand and connect again and retry. That is about the only things you can do safely. When storing sometimes dust and debris gets inside tool and can make the brushes loose contact with the armature

Pe-770 sat unused over a year. Does nothing whe plugged in.

Sometimes after a long period of storage, machines are slow to come back to life. Leave it plugged in and see if it revives.

Dell latitude 610 AC adapter issue or battery pack issue or both?

It could possibly be the power jack that is inside the computer. This item is typically soldered onto the motherboard and it is what your ac adapter plugs into.

I have a roper (whirlpool) top load washer (model # ras7133kq1) that only had less than 1 year of use and was in storage for 2 years. It had been working perfectly when it was put in storage. I installed...

When ever you are keeping the machine ideal for two years the machine may get rusted because once you start using the machine the dust will started to deposit at the bottom of the drum.
you may put some oil or grease over the mechanism and check even after doing that also if you find the same problem means you have change the inner bearings

Appears dead (after being transported)

Washing machines have a cut-off switch that is activated by lifting the lid on the clothes compartment. Possible that the wires are to the terminals of this switch.
Take the top of the machine loose again and check to make sure this switch is connected.
This is where the power goes before it goes into the rest of the mechanism so it can appear dead.

Router will not power up

I wrote a long response to your question, which apparantly has been lost in the web somewhere.
Try to make sure the detachable power cord is properly connected, and twisted 1/4 turn clockwise to lock in place.
Make sure the toggle switch is working freely.
Make sure the collet lock or spindle lock is not engaged.
If that doesn't help, please write back and I'll try to re write a troubleshooting guide for you.
I can't believe it didn't post properly.
Anyway, good luck!
