Sounds like the gear select gate (couple of sliding plates where the gear shift goes into the transmission box) has blocked. Could be the spring that you usuall push/pull against to go through the gate. Anyway, not a DIY thing to muck about with. Will probably have to drop the transmission to get at it.
