Unable to enter boot menu

I just bought this Launchpad S, everything works perfectly, input/output, sound trigerring on ableton and LED feedback works fine.


And then I realized this Launchpad S was shipped in Low Power Mode. I have referred to the guide on how to switch to Full Power mode using this link


However, I cannot enter the boot menu by pressing down session, user1, user2, and mixer.


I hold down all 4 buttons, NOTHING LIGHTS UP. I was waiting and waiting for the RED LED but nothing lights up. 


FYI, I have connected to direct USB (no hubs) of a computer.

You are doing this before you plug the usb cable in right? 

Maybe this video will help to confirm the steps you are performing are correct:-
