How can I "hard reset" my lg motion 4g if I can't even turn it on

And if there is an alternate way to turn my phone on to factory reset, is there an option to recover data and save it to an sd card beforehand or is that option no longer available? Please help :/

Hey AJ. You do that in the following way.
 
1. Press and hold Volume Down button until the device vibrates.
2. Keep tapping the Home and Back buttons until the Android Robot appears
4. Then wait for the setup screen - this can take upto 3 minutes.
5. Use the volume Up/Down keys to navigate through the menu
6. Data wipe - factory reset.
 
There is otherwise a video here on this.

Thank you, but what about the other half of my question? Am I able to turn my phone on through factory reset and transfer my data to an SD card
before wiping the slate clean..or is that not an option? The whole point to saving my phone is to get my pictures and videos back :(
Sorry for the delay, the other (and crucial) part of the question has been answered on the link below.
