Start up Looping

I got my Nexus 3 days ago, it had done a couple "weird" things but all of the sudden I was just going through it, still getting familiar with it, it started to reboot.  It went to to the Google start up, then went to the color wheel, vibrated,screen froze,went black and then started over. Again and again, and again.  It won't start at all.  I called Verizon, they took me into the internal maintenance screen (Droid guy with his tummy opened), got in there once, didn't correct the problem at all. Then was never able to get to that screen again. Now it just says Start, Downloading... Do not turn off target !! and that is where it sits.  Very Disappointed!!!!  HELP !!!!
