Traverse rod stuck?

Hi, I have a drape that seems to have traverse rod which won't budge at all when tugging on the ropes. It seems to be stuck (both pieces somewhere in middle). How might I go about fixing this or what might be the source of the problem?

There is usually a pulley at both ends of the rod and the string rides in those pulleys.
There are two pulleys at the cord pull end.
It may have fallen out of one of them.

If I wanted to fix this, what would I have to do? Do I have to take the whole thing down and restring it?

First you have to get up on a ladder and take a look,

There are quite a few things that can cause this.
Most if not all are repairable with the rod in place

One time this happened as well and we had to restring it. But that time, when pulling the cord, the rope would bend in the center (traverse roller pieces stuck somewhere in the middle as well). This time, the cord is like completely jammed and won't move at all.
