Top wont go up

So I started car up this morning and dropped the top like any other day and when I came home the top wont go up. When I hit the top button on the dash it comes up about an inch and stops and that's it. I don't see it bound up anywhere so did the top motor burn out? This is the first time my top has ever given me any trouble.

Lots of switches that work together to control the top. Handbrake and the top latch are two. Follow the link for in depth help. Poke a round and come back with follow up questions.
