I can't factory reset my Sony Xperia z2 pone?

My phone is broken (the screen) and I need to factory reset it before I send it in to be replaced. Please, can you advise how do I do this? I've read online that it is advised to press the down volume button and the power button at the same time but it doesn't seem to be working

Why can't I factory reset my phone whatever but I don't have a longer question since it said should put a longer as if I hadn't described in detail anyway I hope this is long enough to bypass?

I tried to hold the power button with the louder volume but it only says LG after a bit and when I let go the phone only goes on. DUDE WHATEVER THAT MEANS BUT I Don't HAVE precious time to waste. ID rather go reset my phone in a lot simpler way
