YES I AM DOING EXACTLY AS YOU DESCRIBE AND HAVE TRIED IIT 6 OR 7 TIMES, BUT I STILL GET THE STANDARD MENU COMING UP. SORRY!

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Its ok, it confirms the problem
It is the internal memory that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the memory that shorts out, and causes the device to fault which is the cause of the initial problem.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the unit to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
