Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

I had the same problem. The trick is to make sure that when you put the bobbin on the winder that the notch on the bobbin clicks on the notch holder. So turn the bobbin on the winder until you hear a click or that the bobbin can not be turned. To check if the bobbin is on the holder correctly start the bobbin winder without thread. If the bobbin is engaged on the winder it will spin, if not then it is not set on the notch. I hope this helps.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.
