You could try blowing a warm blow dryer on the reverse button and seeing if it gets it unstuck. If not, its time for a professional.

If you can, flip the machine backwards in the cabinet so you can see up inside the sewing machine. On the inside, locate the reverse mechanism, and give it a couple drops of sewing machine oil. Let it sit for 1/2 hour or so. Then tip machine back flat into cabinet and try it out.

If it hasn't been oiled and used regularly, old oil has a tendency to gum up, to the point of causing problems. Adding new oil and letting it sit awhile should loosen it up. If that doesn't work, you may need to have a repairman look at it. Good luck.
