    I was trying to reset my windows phone so i held the power and volume down button for 15 seconds till i felt a vibration. Then i held the volume down button for a few seconds and i was supposed to see a large exclamtion mark. I didnt see anything so i just continued the steps. I pressed the volume up,volume down, power, and the volume down button again which was supposed to make my phone reset itself but instead it showed a lighting bolt and a gear symbol for about an hour.

    During your attempt to reset something went wrong so try the hard reset again.

    If it still stays stuck use the Lumia Software Recovery tool

    And be sure your phone is charged and/or connect it to a charger.
