The power window circuit may fail in a few ways. A blown fuse would definitely cause the window to lose function. One fuse may effect only one or both windows depending on how the vehicle is wired. The switch used to operate the window may fail and stop window function. I have see switches that either only work one way or stop window function all together. Another common failure is the window motor itself that pushes the window up and down. If the motor shorts out, there will be no window function. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who an come out for a closer look at your inoperative window and offer a more personal diagnosis.
