If the firmware is intact, do a hard reset by holding the power button for 30 seconds.

If it goes back to USB Downloader mode, that would indicate a problem with the firmware (or a bad mmc device). That is where it goes if it cannot find a bootloader on any of its potential boot devices (including the USB port).

You can also go there with the "magic" key, which is one of the Volume control buttons, as I recall (look in the thread hawhill mentioned).
