pleated shades will only go up about 6 inches ?

My hunter douglas pleated honeycomb shade has only one pull cord, not 2. It will only go up about 6 inches and then "sticks" and won't move except to go down.

Only 1 cord? Is it not a multi-strand cord?
Its sounds as though the blind has been let down in a 'Free Fall' which allows the cords inside to sometimes knot.
If this is the case, you have to look inside the honeycomb approx. 6 -7 inches up and you should be able to see a loose knot in a cord. With a fine wire, make a hook on one end and gently pull the offending cord out at the same time allowing cord to feed in the top. Undo the knot and the blind should work
