I got it open, the reason I opened it was because when I turn the power on, nothing happened, any suggestions?

If there is no power, you may have to check if there is any fuse which is gone.

But normally a fuse is not burning without a reason. So there could be some other defect, maybe water is dripping onto some elctronic circuit or also maybe the power supply is dead.

Be careful when working with/near main voltage!

Great instruction! I had to open my Moltio before and it took me some time to figure out how to do without breaking anything.
