Exclamation [Q] Please help! Stuck at LG Splash screen on boot

I am rooted and had PhilZ recovery installed on the vs980. I wiped data, cache, and davlik to install a new rom, but the install failed. After the install failed I realized I had deleted my backups I had. When I went to reboot the phone said it could not find root and would attempt to root on its own or something of that matter. I am now stuck on the lg spash screen with the led blinking green/blue. I cannot boot into recovery or download mode by holding the volume+power buttons the phone just vibrates and turns off for a sec then right back to the lg screen. Can someone please point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance

Yeah try booting into recovery but a little differently this time.. Turn the phone off, hold power and volume down to turn it on but keep holding it until it shuts off again. Then press power and volume down again until the LG logo appears. Release and press them again quickly like normal. This has worked for me in the past when I couldn't boot into recovery. Idk why but it did.. Give it a try
