Hi Welcome to just answer.

When was the last time the system worked?

When you press power on, do you hear anything? You might want to put your ear close to the system.

There might be two things that we need to identify

1. Damage by water getting in the system

2. Short on the outputs. Please remove all the cables on the back and leave only the power cord. Then power on and let me know the results.
