There is a good chance the filter board may have blown the fuse on it. This is not a replaceable fuse, but if the load was too large it could have drawn too much current through that board causing it to burn out. Then it the unit would be just dead with no signs of power to it. Check and make sure the outlet is good and has power and if so you will likely need to change out the main control board.
