I had my tab into hard reset and when I tried to select reboot system now, it didn't turn on even though I left it for how many hours. What should I do? I tried to turn it on but it keeps on going back to android system recovery.

Not working for me.

I get to the reboot screen, can select the options with volume keys, use the home button to select option (wipe data/ factory reset) and the selected options turns from blue to green but does nothing.

Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2017)

Forgot password. Cannot use the gmail recovery or backup PIN. Device will not allow me to power off without entering password (which I forgot). How do I factory data reset device? I don’t need any data currently on device. HELP!
