Default GT-S5830V Won't enter download mode

It goes into Recovery mode ok but no download mode.
Power + vol down (or vol down + vol up) + home makes it loope the galaxy screen once then it just loads the built in rom.

After I first bought it I could get it into download mode. But after rooting her so many times she refuses to play ball.
I have tried unrooting it and uninstalling busybox / CWM etc but don't know what else to try.

is there anyway of resetting the "bios" of the phone to default or something?
I tried restoring the stock build.prop.
Dunno what else to do.

Any advice much appreciated.

Regards.

DONATE TO ME
He can't get into download or recovery because 5830v is an Aussie version with secure kernel. He needs a USB Jig to get his phone into download mode. However he can root the device by enabling USB debugging and installing the latest drivers and then running an exploit like Moto-Chopper (same as I have done). Then I'd advise using Galaxy Toolbox to unlock the device and backup the EFS. Then I would generate the PIT file and use EFS to do all full image backups of the device. I would buy/make a USB jig and then flash a custom recovery. Then flash new kernel. Then after all of that you may now flash a new ROM. Avoid Odin where ever possible. The 5830v is NOT the same as the 5830i. The i can handle software from the v but not visa versa.

Take that as a word of warning.

Edit: I posted in this thread because there is very little information of XDA about the Galaxy Ace GT-5830v
