Door handle stopped working after removing.

So I started vinyl wrapping my car, two doors done. I removed the door handles to do the doors. My first door handle removal and wrap went perfect, nothing wrong with it. However, after removing my second door and putting it back together, pulling on the handle does not open the door. The torx screw is still in place, it didn't fall out. I can still screw it back onto the door handle, but the handle itself doesnt open when it's pulled. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Thanks in advance!

Does it feel like its catching the rod inside? Maybe its just missing and not actuating anything.

I don't think it's catching on the rod no
But now when I try to unscrew it to remove the door handle, it won't come loose/off

edit: dropped the screw inside the door panel @[email protected]
anyone know what screw i can use temporarily until I remove the door panel and see what's up?
