Are you sure that there is no short circuit in the power cord itself? Have you tested to see that you do in fact have power to the switch?
If so, have a look at the brushes...Are they worn out and in need of replacement?
Blow some compressed air down through the motor and clear dust from the armature. Sometimes debris and sawdust gets inside these things and causes intermittent problems.
Do you have any cause to believe the motor itself has been subjected to the kind of loads that would cause severe overheating and lead to failure?
Any or several of these could contribute to a no power condition.
If none of these things apply, give the motor a couple of sharp smacks on the side with the heel of your palm. If there is a loose connection, sometimes this is enough to jar it into place long enough to get a partial power start up, and you can troubleshoot the loose connection. If not, it may make you feel a little better.
Otherwise, I'm afraid you may have a faulty motor. But these porter cables are workhorses. I rarely see them fail entirely. But it does happen.

I hope this helps you to diagnose the source of your problem and leads you to a solution. If there's anything more I can do to help, please let me know.

Can I attach a Wi-Fi router to the back of my Humax Fox HDR T2 to recieve TV from my router on my main computer

No, it's the other way round.

"Plugged into a router or a wireless bridge, the box's network setup is fast and easy. For now it's just used for streaming content from your network to your telly, but there's a button on the remote marked TV Portal which hints at things to come - this box will be able to deliver on-demand and catch-up content, including Sky's online service." - quoted from the link below

How do I get psp 1001 to pick up a signal from my wireless router

First be sure that the wifi switch is on - on your psp. Go to your network connections and make a new connection. It should ask something about automatically detecting signal..use that option. If you use WEP- just type in the password that set up for your wireless router.

Where do the wires from the compressure go to on main base

Wiring up a compressor
The Start wire goes to one side of the run capacitor it will be the only wire on that side of the capacitor.
The Run wire goes to the terminal side (T1 or T2) of the contactor, it will have another
wire from that terminal to the run capacitor which is the opposite side of the start wire.
The Common wire will go to the other side of the contactor (T1 or T2).
Start Kit
Start from the capacitor to terminal #1 on start relay There should be another wire from
here to start on the compressor.
Common from contactor ( T1 or T2) to terminal #5 on start relay. There should be a wire from this terminal to the Common terminal on the compressor.(there will not be a capacitor in this circuit)
Run from the other side of the contactor ( T1 or T2) to the start capacitor and from the other
Side of the start capacitor to terminal #2 on the start relay. There should also be a wire from this
Terminal to Run on the compressor.

Compressor won't switch on, have tried reset switch and circuit breaker, but though the wall unit comes on the compressor wont..anything I can do? This has three phase power Mitsubishi..Mr Slim

If you have any experience in working with electrical systems, you can, but if not you should call a service technician.
First being very careful, check to make sure contactor is engaging.
Then check to see if you have the same voltage across all three wires on the compressor side of the contactor, assuming this is 230 volts, check T1 to T2 should have 230 volts, then check T2 to T3 should have 230 volts then check T1 to T3 should have 230 volts. If you have 230 volts to all 3 wires then the compressor is bad probably an open winding and needs replaced. Before replacing the compressor you need to check the resistance (with an ohmmeter) between all 3 terminals at the compressor. In order to do this you need to disconnect all power to the unit and ohm the compressor terminals from T1 to T2, T2 to T3 and T1 to T3 they should all have the same resistance if they do then the windings are good and the compressor is locked up, if one of the the windings is different then the windings are bad, either way the compressor needs replaced.

I have a Sony LCD projection TV product code KDF-E42A12 which is almost 3 years old. It was working fine but suddenly made a 'clunk' noise and went blank. When switching it on the TV wont start but goes...

Three blinks means a lamp door error. There are two switches in your TV that put the TV into protect when either the lamp is not properly seated or the lamp door is loose.

First open the lamp door on the TV to check the lamp. A defective lamp sometimes could also cause the TV to generate this error code. If you see either a shattered or cloudy bulb then you will need to replace the lamp. The "Clunk" sound you hear was most likely the lamp shattering.

If the lamp is okay, you will need to check the switches for the lamp and lamp door. They are called the T1 and T2 boards. The T1 board is visible when you have the lamp door open. It is on one of the sides inside the TV on next to where the lamp door opens. You should see the switch which is a little board (about 1" by 2") with a very little (about 1/2" by 1/8" ) coming out on the side of the board. There is another board almost exactly like it called the T2 board near where the lamp goes into the TV. This could have also become loose. If you see the metal pieces are loose or missing, the boards need to be repaired. You could either replace the boards if the metal piece is missing or just repair the boards by setting the metal pieces in the correct potions where they make good contact with the switch when the lamp and lamp door in set properly.

Also you could just bypass the switches by making a solder bridge (solder across) the connection to the T1 and T2 boards that will trick the TV into thinking the Switches are closed and bypass this error.

I would replace them to the exact terminals that they used to be on. Technically speaking L1 and L2 stand for Line one and Line two. This would be the incoming power from the breaker or disconnect switch. T1 and T2 are the power leaving the contactor relay.
