Reverb stealth stuck

Apologies if this been covered at length, I had a check and could not find anything recent. I have a reverb stealth on my 1 year old Canyon Spectral. Today I had an issue with it in that it would not come up when pressing the remote and the remote stuck in. When I held the remote in and pulled up the seat it would come back up but dip about 2 inches when I sat on it.

When I got home I checked the air pressure, this was down so I pumped it to 250psi. No joy. I then bled the remote which seems to have sorted the remote sticking issue but now the seat post isn't moving at all. I've tried checking this inside and outside the frame and I'm not sure what else to check.

Is there anything obvious I have missed? The reverb has been a bit sticky when dropping recently but other than that it's been ok. I've always kept it clean, no pressure washing and a bit of fork oil on the seals when cleaning

Any ideas?

    If you can get the post extended try a full system bleed with the post speed on the remote wound out to full slow and then follow up with a remote bleed only with the post speed still on full slow. This should eliminate any air in the system and will point to a parts issue if the problem persists.

    The dip while sitting on it suggests that it needs to be sent back for warranty work.

    You more than likely caused the dip yourself by pulling the post up, its the most common reverb fault.

    Take it out of the frame and try it. I have seen a few Reverbs stuck down which turned out to be just an over tighten seat post clamp.
