Yes the cords running down the sides just need to be a little bit tighter. first try just turning the screw in the plastic post (lower anchor) about 1/4 turn on each side.

Three of my blinds will not open; the cords either have broken outright or slipped somehow so they can't operate as designed. Very frustrating on our recently completed 5-week trip. Any solutions would be appreciated.

If the cords have broken the blinds just need to be restrung. The kit (listed in the above post) includes everything needed and the instructions are great. There are also a number of YouTube videos that are worth watching
