Default [Q] (Q) Cannot boot SG Tab 3. Need help.

I am new to this "rooting" stuff, but I had a friend root my SG Tab 3 10.1 a few months ago. I decided this morning that I did not want root anymore, and with the help of some Youtube videos, decided to try to return it back to original. That did not happen and now I cannot get this thing running again. I used Odin, but I believe I used the wrong firmware for my particular devices, and now all the screen shows on start up is "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again".

I tried Kies with no luck, and I did not backup my original settings to their server. I am in the process of downloading the firmware from "sammobile.com", and seeing if I can use that with Odin to get this thing back to normal.

Am I on the right track, or where am I screwing up at? Any information would be helpful.

You are on the right. Use the right firmware for your device.
