Filament not catching/loading

I have gone through my first batch of filament. I was mid way through a print when the filament ran out, the printer moved off the print as it should but when I tried to load new filament, I haven't had any success. I made sure to cut the filament as suggested, but it just won't catch as it loads. Looking at common problems and a lot of people say it's likely blocked, but I feel like it's not getting anywhere near where the block should be. I am mid way through a 14hr print and am getting frustrated. I assume I have lost this print. Is there a way to fix this with killing the print?

Hot to be silly, but have you tried heating the extruder and reloading the filament?
