    Try very gently pressing on in fuel door while simultaneously pulling the backup fuel door cable as sometimes the plunger gets stuck on the striker plate. If that doesn't work, I would raise the car, remove the wheel & fender wells and have a look at the solenoid to see if the plunger is stuck. It sits in a bracket attached to the filler opening area and sits high inside the bodywork, but you should be able to see it.
