Firstly, it can sometimes be a little cumbersome entering upload/download mode.
Make sure you press vol-up+home+power in that order and keep pressed until you see the recovery screen come up. If its still sticking on the initial Samsung logo, then you have a problem

If so, try a soft and hard reset

If that doesnt cure it, then boot into download mode and try an Odin flash of a kernel .tar (or .tar.md5) file that is compatible with your current ROM

If that still fails, then you will need to flash your current firmware from sammobile.com or live.samsung-updates.com via download mode+Odin

I am having EXACTLY the same problem, has anyone ever suggested a fix for this? I know this is an old thread but as a long shot, did OP get this fixed?

If you are unable to enter Recovery mode whatsoever but can get into Download mode you will need to download and flash, via Odin, the stock Samsung firmware for your phone's model version and CSC code by following the instructions in #1.7 of the Jelly Bean update - Dummies Guide.
