Nighthawk R7000 Will not reset

I was recently gifted an AC1900 R7000 Router by a friend and I'm trying to set it up. I'm trying to factory reset the router but there is no response from the router. I have no other means of resetting the router. What can I try without logging into the router or accessing the admin page (I don't know the login for that either)?

Try a 30-30-30 reset...

Sounds like it's a bust then.

You can try recovering it with tftp or nmrpflash.
are you on windows? if so, follow this guide
https://kb.netgear.com/000059634/How-to-upload-firmware-to-a-NETGEAR-router-using-Windows-TFTP
just make sure you enable tftp
https://www.thewindowsclub.com/enable-tftp-windows-10

and here's a video walk through using a tftp client. Use the built in one for windows 10 though. the video is more of an example of how its done.

and if that doesn't work, you can try using nmrpflash
