It could be the mechanism for opening it fully is jammed/ faulty, or the motor may be on its way out. If I remember rightly, if you remove the plastic casing around the interior light/sunroof switches, there is a bit for opening it manually? This will allow you to check the mechanism for anything obviously wrong. Or it might even work once its been opened manually, have seen this happen before.

This happened to mine-turned out to be small bits of broken plastic in the runners
