Trouble updating firmware on K-S2

Hello! I'm very new to photography and to my K-S2. I tried to do a firmware update but can't get beyond this step (from Ricoh site on how to update firmware):
Turn the camera power on while pressing the MENU button.
"Updates the camera firmware" appears in the LCD monitor.
Ver: 1.00/1.01/1.02/1.10 /1.11→1.20 will be displayed.

When I try to do this, my camera doesn't have anything appear on the LCD monitor. I tried it many times. Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice or tips that I may find helpful?

Thanks!
Stacy

You need to simultaneously push the menu button and then turn on the camera. Make sure you have a memory-card inserted in the camera, complete with the bin file in the root folder of the card.

And make sure the battery is far from empty. I think it will not even start the process when the battery is too low, but when it does and gets interrupted in the process by the battery draining, you're going to have a bad time.
