Then I would do a factory reset in settings>accounts>backup and reset or if you have a recovery that can do the factory reset and see if the download mode works then as it should..the i527m does not have a locked bootloader.
When factory reset is done though you will have to put all you info back in as it is like starting a new rom again..this is all I can think to do at this time.
But wanted to ask is the the phone stock or did you attempt to install any custom recovery etc.
