Question: i did a manufacture reset on my Iphone6s Plus without turning find my iphone off. Cant access phone now. help please

I did a manufacture reset on my iPhone 6s Plus and didn't realize i was supposed to turn find my iPhone off. Now for the passed 2 weeks my my phone is in a constant state of disabled. As i turn my phone on i was welcomed with the hello screen (as if to say its back to brand new) but the second i press any button i'm greeted with entering my verification password. The one password i use that should work does not and before anyone says is it the right one it is. I've been on the phone to apple and re routed to update my iTunes which I've done and then prompted to connect my iPhone to iTunes and try to do recovery mode through that but now my problem is i cant seem to get my iTunes to even recognize that my phone is connected as all it shows is the yellow hazard sign and states its unable to connect and bring up my library. I'm on my last wits here with this phone. If anyone could help me id be thoroughly appreciative.

How to erase your iOS device & then set it up as a new device or restore it from backups

If the above doesnt work for you, then:

Follow these steps to place your iOS device into recovery mode. If your iOS device is already in recovery mode, you can proceed immediately to step 6.

1. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and leave

one end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.

2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds

until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.

* If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the

Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off,

release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.

3. While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the

device. The device should turn on. Note: If you see the battery charge warning,

let the device charge for at least ten minutes, and then start with step 2 again.

4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen.

When this screen appears you can release the Home button:

5. If necessary, open iTunes. You should see the following "recovery mode" alert:

6. Use iTunes to restore the device.

If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, try these steps again. If you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen but the device does not appear in iTunes, see this article and its related links.
