Have you inspected the lock mechanism to make sure its in the open position or that it isnt being blocked with debris.

It looks totally normal. There was a piece of plastic from something I bought, and opened I am guessing, but not for sure. I had used my cane to hold back up I didn't try to close it with my cane in there, but had tried when plastic was there yet stopped ASAP when I felt the resistance. What else might it be? Not electrical!! PLEASE. OH By the way THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
