I just recently bought an N64 which is in perfect condition except that the "Reset" button is stuck pressed down. I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix this without the need to tear the system to pieces.

I gotta be honest, opening it up is the easiest way to deal with it. Does the system still register the reset button as being pressed? What I mean is does the system try to reset a game when you turn it on?

you could probably just slide a flathead in there and pry it up a bit, like removing the eject button from a 360...maybe?

Well, I don't really know if it resets a game because I don't have any games for it. I know absolutely nothing about N64s. When you turn it on without a game in it, what should happen? Because all I get is a black screen. I'm wondering if that's normal. Also, I still can push it down a little bit, so it might work as normal. But I need to get a game for it to know for sure. If worse comes to worse and I do need to open it up, do you need any special kind of screwdriver for it?

I don't recall anything loading if no game was in. Plug a game in and then we might be able to help.

Yeah, be sure and pop a game in there to see what happens before you try to open it. If you do need to open it there is a special screwdriver you'll need to buy to pop it open. They cost around $10 if I recall.

It's not that big a deal, at the end of the day. You don't really need the reset button for anything. You can always just turn the console off and then back on again if you need to reset for some reason. I have to do that with my old Sega Genesis. That broke seven or eight years ago, but everything else works fine except the reset button.

It's normal to just get a black screen when you turn it on without a game in it.

Okay, then. Well, I guess it all depends on me getting a game for it. I'll see what happens once I have a game. So that brings me to my question of "What game should I buy?" Any recommendations?

Banjo-Kazzoie, Tooie, Conkers Bad Fur Day, Goldeneye 007, Perfect Dark, Super Mario 64, Mario Party 2 (its the better one) StarFox64, Mario Kart, Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2, Pokemon Puzzle League, and many, many more.

Okay, yesterday I bought a controller and Banjo-Kazooie. The N64 works fabulously. The reset button doesn't register as being pressed, it just doesn't work at all.

You don't really need the reset button. Flipping the switch off then on again works just as fine. And nice choice of game.

Problem solved! Enjoy your N64, Nintenzo.
I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.
