You need to open the vent, under the dash. Check the cable and moving action assembly. Make sure that it is all moving correctly. Some of the newer hvac systems in cars work off of vacume but most work with cables. Not big long cables, just small lever cables. also check your seals and make sure none of them are broken. I often find this is a bigger probel, the seal is cracked or broken or just came off and needs to be re glued in place. Don't be afraid to take the vent tubes apart as long as you can remember where they go.

Your last guess is probably the right one. The deflectors/directors are vacuum controlled and you may have vacuum line either broken or disconnected; these aren't fun to find. I would start under the hood and make sure the vacuum reservoir is intact (have seen them cracked) and then start tracing hoses from there.

Testimonial: "ellent advice and responed very quickly. Thank you."
the idea of the switch is run on vacuum and is not making contact with the switch it self either worn contacts in the switch itself **** as an obstruction as well or the vent door is stuck in just that position either behind the glove box or the ash tray are the vacuum lines one of them may be pinched off or the door needs a bit of help until you can free it up
