Are you able to RDP to the server hosting that SSRS service ad local admin? If yes you can try different ways  as described here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/reporting-services/report-server/start-and-stop-the-report-server-service

Or via Powershell commands using stop-service/start-service as described here:

For named Instance of reporting service.
