Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
If you will grab the belt and sharply pull very hard it will release. All it takes is for the belt to move lightly for it to retract. I have never seen this not work if you pull hard and sharp enough.

Disassembly is possible but seat belt retractors by law should not be repaired only replaced

Usually when they get stuck you can`t get them unstuck unless they are just twisted.seat belts are not repairable.Your best bet is to go to the salvage yard and get a used one and replace it.

that maybe a safety issue, the seat belts should only lock when you break, if it is locked and your car is not even on thats a safety issue, what if you are in a bad accident and the person in that seat is stuck? Life or death.
check for recalls with the dealer

Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".
Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:
A. Pull belt all the way out.
b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).
c. Pull out on belt again.
If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;
If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.
