Hmm, I don't know -- it "just works" for me: I touch the home button and then, just a split second later, I press the power button, the screen flashes and there's a shutter-click sound, and the screen shot is saved in /sdcard/CapturedImages with the filename being the date and time.

What were you doing when you tried it? Did you try it on the home screen, or were you running an application? What happened when you did it?

You should remove the Browser icon from the home screen, that way you can get another more useful app in there, since the browser is on every bottom of the screen next to the app drawer.

Yes, as far as I know, this is a special capability that was added by LG and not available in other manufacturers' products.

These are my 2 screens...




I'm using LauncherPro as my UI, 3D Digital Weather Clock as the weather/clock widget, and on the widget screen in order I am using Dazzle Configurable Switcher, Rhapsody, Uber Music, and Livescores.

If I remember correctly, with Cyanogen you have to press and hold the power button and press on "screenshot."

Default I took one screenshot.

Now, I don't know why, but every time I take a new one, it won't show up in my camera shots. When I look at the file in the app "Astro", the picture isn't available. What's going on here?

I have a Samsung Stratosphere phone.

I tried the Power + Home button & although I get the "snapshot" sound, and a white border that flickers a moment, it comes up & says, "Unable to capture screen. Try again." which I do. Multiple times. No joy. And if I DO get it to take a screenshot, where does the file reside?

Thanks!

Okay....figured it out. But thought I'd leave this up in case someone else ran into this. I had my USB plug inserted. Once I unplugged it, the screenshot feature ran fine.
And easy enough...screenshots in a folder called...."Screenshots".

Thanks for the tip!!
