Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the seatback will not move it's going to either be a mechanical failure in the recliner mechanism or something foreign may have fallen into the seat and is physically blocking the mechanism from releasing. Disassembly to see the components will most likely be necessary, the seat adjuster assembly may need to be replaced.

Has anything been done to try to diagnose the problem?
