I have tried every combination of Power+Vol Dwn with phone Off, On, it just reboots or does a screen print. I've tried using Power+Up Vol still no go. Even tried the Bixby button. Any suggestions?

I'm trying to Root the phone. I have done all steps to the point of entering the OEM Down Load Mode which is where the problem is.
