I can't get in to download mode Samsung Vibrant 3g

I think I just bricked my phone.
i read some tutorials how to unbrick it with ODIN. But I can't get it to download mode.
I kept volume up and down at the same time and connect usb cable. Phone gives me pic pc and phone with exclamation mark in orange triangle. Is here any way I can get in to download mode?

Try this:

Get your phone into DOWNLOAD mode by turning off your phone and plugging it in.
Wait for the green charging screen.
Hold Volume Up, Volume down, and Power.
Let go of power as soon as the screen goes black.  
A yellow digging Android should be on the screen.
sometimes this takes a few tries to get it right.

Plugging in gives me the same picture it doesn't show battery. Any other ideas. Thanks.
There are some slight variations on this to try:

Download mode :
1. Turn off your phone
2. Pull battery out
3. Hold volume up and volume down (do not let go)
4. Plug battery back in while still holding volume buttons
5. With the cable already pluged into the computer now plug the cable into the phone

Recovery mode :
1. Press and hold volume up volume down and power
2. Wait for second "VIBRANT" to appear at boot up then let go of power only


1. Removed SD and SIM card
2. Removed battery
3. plugged the phone into USB
4. held down vol-up and vol-down
5. popped the battery back in while holding vol buttons

I tried the way snailcat suggested but it didn't work phone goes to the same pic, I guess that means no link between pc and phone. Any other ideas?
