Unhappy [Q] Cannot Access Download/Recovery Bricked

I am currently stuck at the "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again." screen. I am unable to enter Download/Recovery. Every time I turn off it just comes back to the same screen.

Odin fails EVERY time, I've redownloaded odin 3.09 and 3.07 countless times, redownloaded MK7 10 times, reinstalled windows twice, installed the drivers from the device, samsung, kies, even just the windows looking for driver version. I've tried different cables also.

Every time I try to run odin it results in

Please, I need to find a way out of this. Does anyone know what I can do?

This forum is for the new Gear 2, not the Galaxy Gear 1. If you did indeed flash MK7 (a Galaxy Gear 1 ROM) on the Gear 2, try following the instructions on this sammobile.com Gear 2 firmware web page.
Note 3 + Gear 2

It suddenly all makes sense.
