thanks for the fast reply. i tried both but still no change

Does the command fastboot devices show your phone?

If possible, try changing USB ports on computer and/or cable. I mention because I had one device that would not work with USB 3.0 port, but worked with USB 2.0. @gregoryaul has had more hands-on experience with OnePlus. Best to you.
