[Q] Bad Stock Recovery? Won't wipe or unlock

I have a customer's phone who's recovery appears to be corrupted in some way. The phone will not wipe with either normal factory reset in settings, nor will it go into recovery or wipe from the fastboot menu. I figured I'd just try unlocking the phone so I could reinstall the stock recovery (or any other recovery.)

However, it seems that after getting the unlock .bin and acknowledging the warranty prompt, the phone just resets with no wipe and still locked.

Does anyone know how I might be able to fix this problem?

It takes the token just like it normally does. The phone shows the prompt, and after you say yes to the prompt, the phone just boots normally without unlocking or wiping.
