Screenshots in JB ??Support

    My Bionic used to take screenshots using Volume Rocker + Power Button. Since upgrading to 4.0.4, my (stock) Bionic no longer takes screenshots.

    Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have a work-around?

    Volume down plus power does it does it for me.

    OutOfPhase's answer is true for me also.

    My guess is that you are holding down both volume buttons. That does not work under ICS.

    BTW ... you are running ICS and JB.

    +1 to Thom and OutOfPhase...
    I found it's a timing thing. Start by pressing the vol down key just before you press the power key and continue to hold them both down.

    Yes, 4.0.4 is ICS. My Bionic is stock. Volume Down plus Power does nothing but turn the volume to mute. Still no screenshots.

    Unhappy in Texas!

    Did you do a Factory Data Reset after updating from Gingerbread to ICS? (It is so close to mandatory that it should be a stated requirement.)

    Yes, I did a full factory reset when I upgraded from GB to ICS.

    I will do another factory reset if and when the Bionic ever gets JB.

    If you did a Factory Data Reset after the upgrade to ICS and are not root-ed then that can be ruled out.

    Under Gingerbread there was an added app to take screenshots. In ICS it is built in. You didn't by chance install the app did you?

    With GB, I used to use a free app for screenshots. I am pretty sure that I never reinstalled it after upgrading to ICS.

    Since the volume is going to mute when you try this then it is clear that you are not holding the power and volume down buttons down at the same time. You are only holding the volume down button. You have to hold them both down at the same time for a few seconds and then it will be obvious that the screen shot is taken.

    I finally got it to work. As SNeitzel wrote, it's all about the timing.
