    Welcome to the forums.
    Have you tried pulling the battery out for several minutes?

    Can you get into download mode? Hold power, home and volume down.

    It's supposed to do that - it waits for you to download firmware to the phone.
    I think the previous poster just wanted to know if Download mode was working - if it isn't then you're pretty much SOL.

    Since it is working you just need to decide whether you want to use the Kies software or a tool called Odin to reload the firmware. If you use Kies it'll download the correct firmware for your phone based on your model number and IMEI (both can be found under the battery); if you decide to use Odin you'll have to download the firmware yourself. You can look for it here - select your device in the drop-down list in the upper left corner.
