Good day..
try to see the LED indicator of your vacuum if it is light to low battery charge it...if the indicator is not lights-up your battery is drain.. because when the battery is not used for the long time it is got drain.
try to remove the battery and test it using tester the reading of your tester must 12vdc if not or almost zero reading replace it

if the indicator is on normal lights so your battery is good and the motor is not function..
try to lubricate it with the oil to the bushing

thank you and good luck

My rotating brushes have stopped rotating

Almost certainly you have broken a drive belt. It is not a big deal though just turn it upside down and remove the base plate you should be able to access the belt from there. You should be able to get a belt pretty easy from an online retailer like vacuumspot

My sweeper will not pick up anything,

Quite simply, if you don't own an air compressor
and I doubt many people do.

You need to thoughly blow out all vacuums after
every 2 or 3 uses

Then 1 or 2 times a year completely disassemble
them to clean the brush assy & keep it running.

If you have a bagless vacuum & most people probably do,
you have to have the compressed air to keep it working at all

When you say sweeper, I hope your referring to a vacuum
I haven't heard the word sweeper in 50 years

While using this type of Vaccum Cleaners we should be little bit careful, why because these Cleaners made not use in harsh but to be used carefully,as you said that you have bought this Cleaner 2 years may be it need a service or the capacity of the vaccum cleaner have been lost due to its interal properties.
my choice is to service it once in two or three months.

After the dc16 is charged, I try using it but it only works for about 30 seconds and then it stops. I've had the vaccum for about 3 years. I need a solutions. Could it be the battery?

Almost certainly the battery. 3 years is pretty good for those batteries. Normally batteries can be changed by suitably "interested" people, but I don't know about that specific model. Check out the replacement price of the whole thing compared to the replacement price of just the battery before you jump in though.
