    Try using a Samsung Jig. You can buy one on eBay for a few bucks, or you can make one yourself if you can solder to a microUSB connector. (It's a 300k resistor - or 3-100k resistors in series - between pins 4 and 5.) Power off, plug it in and you should boot into download mode.

    If that still doesn't work, take it to Samsung. Or try to find someone with a JTAG rig.
