In some instances the Phone >> ! >> PC screen will function the same as being in download mode.

For other connection issues, check this thread Captivate - PC Connection Issues, Download Mode and Recovery Mode Help. Give consideration to the parts about trying different cables and PCs, also read the section regarding the fickleness of getting drivers to work.

It could also be your hardware. Considering that you said you had to tilt the phone to get it to come on, it might be that there is a bad connection / broken solder between the usb port and the motherboard of the phone.
