Step 1: Place your hands on either side of your blind and pull it all the way down. Step 2: Gently rock your blind from side to side while slowly lifting it up. Step 3: Pull it down again and lift it to test if it is working properly. Note: You may have to repeat this process a few times to reset the mechanism. Fixing Horizontal Blinds That Won't Go Down Do not take the blinds off of the window. Grab the cord that is responsible for raising and lowering the blinds. Now's the time to remove the blinds from the window. Look inside the head rail to find the lock mechanism. Replace the blinds on the brackets and close the doors. This type of repair may involve replacing broken or bent blind slats with new ones. Wooden blinds can cost $35 or more per slat to replace completely. However, since wood blinds are often more expensive to replace, it is usually cost-effective to complete the repair if it is only needed for a few slats. Replacing Cord on Continuous Cord Loop Remove the old cord. Hold the clutch by its base. With your other hand push a small loop of cord up to the front from behind the guard. Select an appropriate cord length for the shade. Insert thew new cord into the lift mechanism. Push a loop up from behind the guard. This is caused due to the "Pawl"(see figure) binding. To release the blinds tug the lift cords to the side pulling towards the center of the blinds. If this does not work, the pawl must be released, follow these easy steps. Remove the blinds by taking the headrail out of the brackets.

A cordless blind still has cords going through the slats in order to operate them. To lower the blinds you simply pull down on the bottom rail and tilt the bottom rail back and forth to tilt the slats. To raise the blinds, just raise the bottom rail.
