    Do you have an SD card inserted? If so, try removing it and rebooting--sometimes a corrupt card can cause problems like that.

    My S4mini (GT-I9190) is very touchy about exactly how buttons are press'd and especially released in order to actually get into recovery mode. (I'm using CWM v6.0.5.1 by arco68.) I have found it necessary to press exactly as follows:

    Begin this process with power off (remove battery, wait awhile, replace)
    1a. Press & hold Volume Up. While continuing to hold,
    1b. Press & hold Home. While continuing to hold (both),
    1c. Press & hold Power.
    2a. Continue to hold all 3 until device starts up (it vibrates).
    2b. Release power button (keep holding other 2 buttons) during vibration*.
    3. Release other buttons when blue Recovery Mode appears.
    -------------------------------------
    * Vibration lasts a second or two, release only the power button during latter part of vibration, or very shortly after vibration ends.
