These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.

It sounds like the needle bar of the machine has come loose inside. This will need setting in the correct position height wise or you risk damaging the hook. Sorry but it may need to go to the repairer.

I recently purchased a Janome 1600P-DB and in order to do free motion quilting I had to cover the feed dogs with an index card. I also cut a small section out of the card to allow for the thread and needle to move freely. Standard tape was used.

if the handwheel won't turn, i'd double check nothing is still stuck. also, make sure you didn't half disengage the blade as they have several positions ( so you can disengage it for rolled hem etc) If you can't find anything I'm sorry to say something may have been damaged when the fabric got caught.
