I had the same problem and just fixed it by taking the lid apart and putting it back together.
The first step was to unscrew the bottom part of the lid.
The second step was to force the center "pop top" back up. I did that by pushing screw drivers into the two large channels in the underside of the lid.
This got the lid to the point that it would go to the open position again, but when I closed it, it would jam again.
Next I removed the center pop top piece by prying back some of the four catches that keep it from coming out of the lid. I then straightened a little spring that looked to be bent. I put it all back together and now it works well.

I have the round button variant. The button was stuck down. Removed gasket plate by unscrewing from main lid. Released the button by using a butter knife to push in on the gripping clasps you can see through the underside of the button. It would still sick though when used.
Pulled button out from the top by gently squeezing and rocking it out. On the inside bottom of button there is little metal clasp that looks like a paper clip. Make sure both legs are parallel and aligned and that there is still a small gap between them (roughly 1/8 inch). The legs of this clasp fit into the plastic bit that controls whether the lid locks down or pops up. So fiddle with that and it should be the fix.

I called Oxo toll free help line. They had me check the manufactured date (imprinted in lid) and sent me lid for free. Customer service rep (Karen) was great! Very patient and thorough.

Check the OXO on the lid. If it's at all diagonal, it needs to be force twisted back into place. You can pry off the center square cap on the other side and look inside to see the spring and slot. That will tell you which way it needs turned. It takes a bit of torque, but they snap back in place.
