Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question.

It doesn't sound like you're getting to recovery – instead you're getting too old and mode which is for flashing a new operating system. Try pressing the power button and the volume down button at the same time. This should bring you to the recovery screen where you can use the volume buttons to navigate and the power button to select. Go down to the factory white/reset and then use the power button to select it.
