Hi welcome to just answer
Do you happen to see any signs of power on the turn table?
Can you follow the cables to it and check connectors.

This is more of troubleshooting problem that might require taking the system apart to do a visual and electrical test. Would you be able to find hand tools and electrical measuring instruments?
