GFI outlet not working

Outdoor outlet not working. Worked a few months ago.
It is GFI protected but the test and reset buttons won't "go in" seems like they are jammed. The outlet is protected from the elements by a roof and cover. I have eliminated a breaker issue and have checked the other GFI's in the house.
Any help appreciated .

"buttons won't "go in" seems like they are jammed" sure sounds like you need a new GFCI receptacle but pull the receptacle and check there is power to it. Replace it if there is power to it. Sounds like it just wore out but since GFCI buttons won't hold with no power best to check that first.
