Remove the six screws on the bottom of the Nintendo 64 console.
Open the console and located the reset button, then squeeze the tabs holding the reset button and push upward so the button pops out.
Clean inside the hole where the reset button is with a cut-tip or a toothbrush dipped in rubbing alcohol. Repeat this step and clean around the reset button itself. Then wipe dry with a standard paper towel.
Place the reset button back in it’s home, and push up and down making sure the button is no longer stuck or jammed. Now place the top of the lid on top of the console, again making sure the reset button functions, as it should.
Just before you re-assemble the console, clean out the cartridge slot with some 220 grit sand-paper. Place the sandpaper inside the cartridge slot and rub gently back and forth.
Re-assemble the console and get back to gaming.
