Welcome to just answer.

I am sorry to hear that your turntable is not spinning.

Can you check the following items:-

1. Do you hear the motor noises spinning

2. When was the last time the system Worked?

3. Have you ever replaced the belt?

icant even turn it by hand

Then I would think the motor has a damaged during storage and my suggestion would be to take the system apart to identify the problem and see if you can order parts and perform repairs.

I can also call you to discuss in details.
