Samsung galaxy tab s6 lite will not hard reset

I have been trying to hard reset my tab s6 lite for two days now. I have followed all the guides and videos without success. It would seem that after the final stage of lifting my fingers from the power and volume up keys,  all I get is a continuation of a soft reset.  I was locked out of my tablet and now the tablet is in airplane mode and I think the power key is set to bixby mode. I have no idea why I was locked out, I used 6 figures as my pin to unlock and now the tablet seems to want 4 figures to unlock.

Any help would be very much apricated.

Just connect your tablet with your laptop by usb cable and do the hard reset by push the power button and volume down button together. when the screen is blank move your finger to the volume up button while another finger still on the power button. Release your fingers when  the screen shows samsung logo.

In this case, I would recommend taking this to one of our Support Centres along with a valid proof of purchase so the lock can be removed by our engineers. You can find your nearest one HERE.

My Tab S6 Lite restarts all the time on its own. I cannot do a hard reset, I have tried 100 times, I hold the buttons and it just does a soft reset each time. (With the volume and power buttons) 

I don't know how to do it with plugging into a PC, or did you just mean if you cannot see your screen, Because my screen is working fine. Just continued soft resetting. And I cannot clear cache partition or do a hard reset because buttons will not work to enter program mode. 

Any help???
