Repairing a fishing reel

I have two reels now that are not locking back when winding??? Is it easy enough to fix my self or should I just take them in to a repair centre.

The one I'm more interest in having fixed is the near new Penn Applause 4000 which i won in a comp :D

Flicking the little lever at the bottom of the reel is meant to enable the reel to lock. The same has happened to my trusty old Surf reel as well. What is the function of this stupid little lever when you can just release the bail arm to free up some line???
