try pushing down on that side of the hood when you pull the lever (takes 2 people, or 1 with 4 9ft long arms). Keep holding the lever while you release the center latch and lift the hood. I can't promise it'll work, but it usually does. sometimes you have to play with it a while.

It can be a pain, even for a skill mechanic, BUT you have to get under and trip the leaver or sometime if the cable broke on the inside you can strip the cable shroud and use plyers to pull the cable

First, take a good look at it and find out what isn't working. Often they just get rusted and sluggish. Use wd40 or other solvent and work the mechanism to free it up. If that does not work, you usually can get the assembly very cheaply at an auto salvage yard.
Also make sure the rubber bumper stops are properly adjusted they tend to wear and flatten and will allow the hood to flutter if that happens. The bumper screws up and down to adjust.
