Thanks in advance

What make/sort of screen. Suggest photos? I've had problems and sorted them but depends on what your prob. is.

Hi There isn’t a make on the screens but in the photos the fly net half springs up and down perfectly but the blackout section won’t re coil down.

Sorry but not the same problem, different type of blind than mine. In my case one string that guided the return of the blind had broken. A little spring that the string threads through had corroded and the rough rust had worn away at the string. I found that there was enough spare string to pull further though the mechanism to re tye the string at the broken end. The blind, you will find, is attached to wall with screws possibly hidden under covers at the corners or visible, as mine were. It should be an easy matter to take blind off wall, turn upside down and you can probably unscrew sides and ease blind apart to get an idea what problem is. Take it slowly so that you can put back together again.
