I'm new to every and all tractor related things, so please forgive my lack pf tecnical jargon.

I was baling some hay a couple days ago and everything was normal, but just as many rookies before me, I plugged the baler's pickup and there was some hay stuck on the back. I unplugged the pickup and decided to close the tailgate and engaged the PTO to see if that could loosen up the clump on the back. Apparently it all cleared but now the tailgate won't open. The baler monitor shows the tailgate as open and when I activate the hydraulics to try to get it to move it does nothing, only the bale ramp goes up or down.

Does anyone here know what might be wrong? Any idea how much will it cost me to get it fixed?

Thank you.

Check the tailgate lock valve above the left side tire. It is a rotary valve with a red handle.
