Light switches not working

Three ceiling lights controlled by five switches. One three way and four four ways. All switches have worked for 14 years. Now no switches work. Is there a way to identify problem short of removing and testing all five switches?

You will actually have two three ways and 3 four ways.
I would start with the breaker.
Then I would go to one of the lights and test voltage. It could be a neutral problem.
Then it becomes a matter of trail and error opening different boxes and tracing where the cables run until you find the problem.
