I don't have a Taurus, but the first thing I would check is the Center Pin to see if it is depressing the whatchamacallit in the recoil shield when the Cylinder is closed. Apologies for the highly technical terms. :whistling:

"whatchamacallit" = I believe this is referred to as the "Pivot Hole" by those in the trade. Some revolvers have a "Plunger" in the hole that must be depressed before the Trigger or Hammer will work.
You should be able to open the cylinder and depress the Plunger with a pencil which should allow the thing to cycle.

DISENGAGEMENT (ready-to-fire)
To place the revolver in a firing condition, insert the key into the mechanism and turn it counter-clockwise. The mechanism is now virtually flush with the back portion of the hammer. The revolver can now be fired.
