Fuse problem again

A few months ago I posted here with a problem that was fixed by resetting the GFCI. (thanks for teaching me that). NOW - it happened again - the same elec outlets will not work. But this time the GFCI refuses to be reset, no matter how many times I push those buttons (neither of the buttons really 'pops' out).
And by the way THIS time it blew because I was a dummy and did not think to unplug the space heater before I turned on the vacuum cleaner to use because my DH broke a small glass bottle of tonic water on the floor and I needed to vacuum the broken glass. AND when it blew it was a few minutes left on the '49er's game which he could not watch because the TV is on the circuit ..... that is until he pulled out the big ol extension cord and ran TV to the working plug. any hoo ....

I re-read those other posts, and one said to First find your control box and reset all breakers. (push all the way to the left then back right).Next check the fuses on the 12 volt side. Check all the plugs for the GFIC button. Reset all the plugs with GFIC even if they do not seem tripped.

I went to what I think is the "control box" but can't see any "breakers" to reset. 'Course I really don't know what I'm looking for. I've attached a picture of where I looked, is it the right place? The pix is obviously the panel door.

Thanks for the help - and for teaching me the fuse /breaker 101.

I will second teddyu, GFI's do go bad and it is relatively easy way to tell if you have other problems, (if a new one does not work ya got problems). Here is a how to install and test http://www.hipspro.com/pubs/How-to-install-GFCI.pdf
A more intelligent GFCI that self tests and might give you more information http://www.hubbell-wiring.com/press/...APERlaunch.pdf
