Should I just not do a normal factory reset first? Also I had the issues with previous firmwares and thought if I upgrade it will fix that but it did not.

What browser are you using? Use IE11 or FF when trying the Recovery mode process.

Do I need to flash the firmware that it is on or downgrade to the first one?

I would try same version as you have on now.

Try Safari on OSX for recovery mode. Then try FF ESR...

I recommend that you phone contact your regional D-Link support office and ask for help and information regarding this. We find that phone contact has better immediate results over using email. USA has 24/7 online chat. I'd ask about RMA options.
Let us know how it goes please.

I purchased the router through eBay though, will I still be able to get an RMA?

I don't know. I presume if the router was 2nd hand, maybe not covered.  :-\

Call and find out what D-Link says.

Im not sure if he can do that I read up that he can't, but maybe I'm wrong.
