There should be a 10.000 ohm resistor (marked as 103) from the reset pad to the 3.3v supply on the "SysCon"chip, which is a small chip close to the center of the board at the same side the EE chip is. If that resistor is failing, the Reset button will be unstable. The resistor might be damaged from grease from your finger... hehehe ... Actually mod installers should avoid touching the board to don't put grease from the skin (which can be corrosive to electronics).
That's the main reason why computer HDDs should not have the electrical board touched.
I hope this information is helpful.
