Default Hard Bricked Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8013 Tablet:Unable to boot to Download Mode

Hello
I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8013 Tablet.
Im unable to boot to download mode and go to screen with the green android to access Odin.
I press and hold the power and volume up button at the same time and its warns me to press the Volume Up button in the warning screen but after I press the volume up button, it boots to the Samsung Logo rather than the green android screen for Download Mode.
I believe the tablet hard bricked because it won't boot to the home screen.
I purchased a usb jig for my S4, S5 cell phones but unable to usb jig the GT-N8013 tablet because the charging port is a lot bigger than the usb jig for S4 cell phones.
I would know what have to or purchase in order to access download mode to restore the tablet to stock using Odin.
If the tablet is not able to restore to stock using Odin, what other methods are there?
Please let me know all the solutions to this problem. Thanks.

Are you sure your pressing the volume up button and not the down button? can you access recovery?

Hello
Yes. I was holding the volume up and not the down button but it went to the warning screen and straight to the samsung logo rather than the green android.

I'm just asking, I thought pressing power and volume down button together, then volume up button goes to download mode(odin).While pressing power and volume up together goes to recovery.By the way the volume down button is near the power button.

I pressed both buttons (volume up and volume down) with the power button but the green android is still not showing up. All it's doing is going to the Samsung logo and then Samsung logo just sits there.

Don't press both the volume button at the same. Press power and volume down(the one beside the power button) together ,then when the screen goes with a Warning!! (were it ask you to select volume up: continue or volume down: cancel(restart phone) ).Press the volume up button( the one far away from the power button.You're tablet now goes to download mode. Is that the step you do?

Im a mobile support rep for a large corporation. I know what Im doing. I unrooted and unbricked over 150 phones over 3 years but I never worked with unbricking samsung galaxy notes 10.1 tablets
I pressed the power button and volume up and also the power button and volume button down after.
It's doesnt boot to the download mode but it boots to the samsung logo and it just stays there as noted 3 times.

Ok mate ! I was trying to post out that you might be doing it wrong on pressing the combinations of buttons. Cause the way you write your post(no offense mate). Sorry mate maybe my English is poor I think I just misunderstood your posts. I'm just trying to help.Anyway goodluck mate hope you fix your tablet.

P.s. I don't work on any large corporations, but I fix my own gadgets as long as there are available resources.
