There are a few reasons why the jack will not go up or down. If it's a powered jack the switch could be bad on the jack. In that case if you let me know the brand of the jack, I can see if we have a replacement switch.

If the jack has a poor ground then it may not go up or down properly, so you want to check the ground is properly grounded to a clean bare metal surface. If the jack grounds through the mounting hardware then you want to make sure that area is free of paint.

You also want to make sure it has a good power wire and a charged battery. I know it sounds silly but sometimes people forget to charge the battery.
