aluminum blinds won't open properly

I have outside mounted horizontal blinds on one window that recently stopped opening when I turn the wand. They open about halfway and then the wand will not turn anymore. They are less than a year old and have always worked fine. I haven't done anything to them, so I don't understand why they won't open. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Your tilt control has been over tightened. to fix this simply remove the blind and slide the rod out of the tilt control and turn to the center and reinstall the rod... Let me know if I can help!!!!!

Also, remove the blind and take a look inside the head as you turn the wand for something that might be interferring with it opening & closing.
