Good chance the winding spring has snapped. Happens at times with hicaps, not that difficult to fix as long as you take the mag apart carefully and note where all (not that many, a couple pins, a couple gears) the little parts go and orientation. If tht spring is broken, likley it's at the base where there is a simple 90deg bend in it. If so, removing the broken peice and putting another bend with pliers in the spring, reinserting it should get it back running again. I've fixed a couple hi caps in the past that had this issue, was pretty easy to do.
