sounds like a gear selector / linkage problem... have you had a look at the mechanics underneath the stick... something as simple as a small item falling down into the well could stop it being shifted to the right...

so its a gear linkage issue by the seems of things. Unfortunately I cant really say how is best to fix it, I would advise that you are probably best placed taking it to an independant garage. They may be able to release the cable and unstick it if it is seized shorted than it should be, but I wouldnt know where to start in advising you how to fix it...
