What's wrong with my sprayer?

My kitchen sink sprayer only works if I hold down the sprayer trigger and then turn on the faucet AFTERWARDS...anyone know what the problem is?

Just a wag, but you could have trash in the barrel of the sprayer preventing it from activating from an idle position. With the water off, remove the nozzle and take it apart as much as you can. Then turn on the water slowly with the hose pointing into the sink. Hopefully it will purge itself. If not, then it may be in the diverter part in the mixing valve. A little more difficult to deal with.
