innertube not deflating

Ok,

bit of a strange one, but I can't get the innertube to deflate :(

It's the standard schrader type, which I've deflated countless times. It also won't inflate either. Normally it wouldn't bother me but I last had it at around 35 psi for the trails but want it around 50 for on road.

    Valve gone dodgy.

    Change that or new tube.

    That'd be difficult if it won't deflate. looks like I'll have to hack it off or something

    get yourself and the wheel up to local tyre fitting place they have a valve key and it will unscrew and deflate will probly have a new valve for a couple of quid

    Stick something pointy in it and it will deflate rapidly.

    Look in the valve. You'll see a straight bit of metal going across the middle. That is the bit you unscrew and the valve pops out.

    Valve tool is less than a quid at Halfords, but a tyre place will have a new core you can screw in as well.
