    Volume+home+power button gets you to the download mode.
    So is what exactly is the problem, the charging port is not working or the phone is not booting? or both ?
    You can solve the booting problem but for hardware you will have to get it repaired.
    If the recovery menu is not accessible(home+power), your only option remains is to reflash the android firmware on the phone. You can do that yourself through Odin or you can get it done from the samsung service center, your choice. This will erase all your phone data(not sd card).

    The procedure to use Odin is given here in the section C, required files also given there.

    Let me know if recovery is accessible, might save reflashing the whole firmware again.

    Had the same problem. Battery had run down completely and this meant the phone couldn't use mains charger. Connected to PC via USB and got enough juice in there to reboot.Then connected to mains and all good. No need to reset for me.
