    Default N64 Reset Button Doesn't Work

    As far back as I can remember, my N64's reset button doesn't work. It moves freely and isn't stuck, just nothing happens when you press it. The system works fine otherwise, and is a launch unit.

    Anyone come across one of these?

    I've only ever had a gunked-up reset switch, from what I can remember. I don't remember how many pins the switch uses, otherwise I'd suggest shorting the proper lines to see if the reset function works, independently of the physical button.

    I have, once or twice had to pull the switch apart and clean the contacts. Worked sweet afterwards.
    Thank you for donating to the Sega 16 bit manuals!
