You could try to open the notebook in an ascii-editor such as Notepad
(if you have Windows) or even better, an editor which is able to
balance brackets, and parenthesis and so. Sometimes it's just a
question of one such character going AWOL. Fix the missing character
and you may be fine. And often you can save stuff by copying the
usable parts to a clean notebook window.
