Toilet tank won't refill

One day suddenly our toilet flushed but the tank wouldn't refill .. (it had worked fine for years) .. I took off the lid and tried to figure out the problem. I then turned off the valve near the wall and turned it immediately back on and the water stared to quickly fill the tank ...

Now we have to force fill the tank in this way after it has been flushed ... simply by turning off the valve and turning it back on ...

What would cause the flush mechanism not to reopen the connection to the water supply ...?

Chances are it's the fill valve ( ballcock) inside the tank needs replacing.
