Default Can not enter recovery

So, here I was trying to restore a nandroid to test something. It said failed and rebooted. Now I can't do anything.

I thought that power button and volume up was the combo to get into recovery?

I'm stuck here and I'm certain its something simple.

any help would be appreciated.
Maybe the wrong thread, but technically its a question on how to get back to recovery.

Edit; Finally was able to get back into recovery via ADB. but dang. scary not being able to quickly get into recovery.

FWIW, power and vol down is how to get into hboot where you can choose recovery. did you attempt that?

see.. this is why my day sucked. I kept going the other way. Power vol up. Which is ok. I was finally able to get ADB reboot recovery to work, so in the end no foul no harm. But thanks guys for letting me know. for whatever reason, I thought it was the other way.

I appreciate the help!!
