Begging For Help! Galaxy Mega "Bricked" Stuck on Samsung Logo

I am so beyond frustrated at this point. My Mega 6.3, which was not rooted, is bricked or acting like it is. It does not go past the Samsung logo screen. I feel like I've tried everything I can possibly think of to this point. I can go into recovery mode, but I CAN'T go into download mode. I have Odin, Kies 3, and the firmware downloaded, however, none work without going into download mode that I'm aware of. I have been working on this phone 2 days straight and I am going nuts! I'm praying someone can give me some suggestions, before I lose what is left of my mind.

I also have a usb/micro usb storage - if that is even helpful. I was hoping I could load the firmware on there and some how load it in recover mode.... I don't even know if that is possible. I'm begging for help at this point. Thanks in advance.

1) Best Buy. Ask for the Samsung Experience desk. They have software tools (and probably a Samsung Dongle) which can get you into download mode and reflash the ROM.

2) If not, get a Samsung Dongle on ebay (they're about a buck). That will force even a hard-bricked phone (it works as if the battery is out - nothing at all) into download mode. then you go from there to reflash the ROM.

3) I've seen "flash from the SD card" ROMS, but I don't know if there's one for the Mega. Check on XDA.
