Door handle not working

My passenger side door handle stopped working this weekend. I picked up a friend and when he got in the truck it worked fine, but later that night when i took him home he couldn't get in. The inside of the handle works fine, it's just the outside doesn't work.

This happened to my passenger rear door about a year ago, I sprayed some WD-40 in it and it worked perfectly after that. But that didn't work this time.

Wish i could give more info but my door handle knowledge is a bit lacking

Anyone of any ideas for a fix? Or what a common problem may be?
