Question about Ryobi Garden
Without more information, the best guess is that the piston is probably seized in the cylinder, this will not fix itself by adding oil now. It likely needs a new piston and/or rings and/or cylinder or shortblock assembly. You can google your model number for sources of repair parts. Depends what you find when you disassemble it, if you can get the piston out you may be lucky to get by with a new set of rings and honing the cylinder.
But it will be a batch of work for a $200 blower. May be worth it if you can do it yourself and the parts arent too much. Certainly a shop couldn't do it for less than the replacement price of the whole blower.

If the engine is sticky ie harder to pull it might have to be pulled apart new piston and honing of cylinder. not difficult just a pain. If it doesn't seem any harder to pull, Drain all of the unmixed fuel. Put a few drops of 2cylinder oil in the spark plug hole and pull the starter a few times with the plug out of it. Put a few more drops in repeat. Replace the plug (new plug) Put in mixed fuel prime the system cross your fingers and it should start up for you.

Remove the Muffler and Look into the Exhaust Port.
If the Piston has Scratches or Gouges, then the Engine is Trashed and will have to be Replaced.
A New Unit is Usually Cheaper than Buying the Replacement Parts.

test for spark.
while spark plug is out - put finger over hole see how much compression there is.
If good spark - look for holes in fuel line.
