Hello! Let's see if we can work together and come to a satisfactory conclusion!

See the link above. The control valve has two solenoid valves that lock the spools for lift and bucket. One is not opening, locking your boom. Check it for voltage, and if it has voltage, the valve may be bad, you can swap the two valves to see if it is the solenoid. Both should release when the seat/park brake function is released.
