Tip & How-To about Leviton 8599 GFCI Receptacle
Unplug everyting that's plugged in to all the outlets on that circuit (which that GFCI controls), and then press the RESET button. It should work.
If NOT, unplug it all as above, and then disconnect each receptacle. (be careful that no power is being sent to any of them and that noone touches the wires because it will start working after this). then reconnect the GFCI receptacle only and see if you can press the RESET button then. if so, then you know one of the outlets on that circuit has an issue. connect them each one by one and test if you can reset after each one. If you can, then you know which receptacle it is. try reconnecting that one again,there's a good chance it will work as you have just tightened the wires. if not, then you have a more serious problem, possibly a short somewhere in the wall.
i'm not an electrician, but i just had this problem and this tip was passed on to me by a friend and it worked.
