Default GT-P5113 Bricked After Firmware Update?

I apologize if the easy and simple fix to this issue has already been posted, but so far, I've read so many different "solutions"...none of wwhich has worked.

Yesterday, I accepted an OTA update, after which my tablet never booted up again. It will partially boot up, but will get "stuck" on the glowing Samsung logo. It will not proceed any further, and will just sit there on the logo until the battery wears out.

I've been able to get it to the menu to wipe data, etc (holding down the power button and volume up), which I DID, only to have the tablet reboot to the glowing logo and sit there yet again.

I don't know what to do. It doesn't sound like Samsung has a fix for this software problem? Or is there really something wrong with my tablet that I'd have to send it in? Sounds like others who have done this have received their tablets back, "fixed", only to have the same thing happen again when they did the OTA update, OR if they did the update through Kies.

I'm a newbie. I'm not a techie. If there IS a fix for this, can you give me STEP-BY-STEP instructions on what to do? AS if you are talking to a child? haha...thank you so much! I'm SO upset...my tablet was beautiful, and now it's just dead...

And exactly HOW do I "reboot into recovery"? Everytime I push power plus the volume up button, I get to a warning screen that says something about "warning, you are about to change the OS...continue or cancel" I cant get past this to even GET to the menu of "reboot", "wipe data", etc.

HELP!

(Thanks for responding!)

Alright...I did get it into recovery mode, I factory reset it, then hit wipe cache partition. It started the process, THEN I saw "ERROR" flash quickly up on the screen. Then it began to boot up again, and here I am, STUCK ON THE GLOWING LOGO AGAIN.

This didnt work. Anybody else have a different suggestion?

Alright, so the file I think I need is P5113UECLK7. Anybody have any ideas where I can download this? ALL LINKS I FIND are to site that have been shutdown, and it is NOT on the Sammobile site, either.
