    My SGS 2 just had an update to 4.0.4 and now the screen capture does not work (vol down + lock button)

    Has this feature been lost, has the button combo changed or is my phone just f*****d again?

    All that happens when i press the above combo is either the volume goes down or the device restart menu pops up, have tried dozens of times now and nothing...

    I know how to do it as it worked fine until the latest update, now it does not work.

    I've taken many screen captures with this phone, but since the update it does not work.

    Ok it seems the bottom combo has changed on the 4.0.4 update.

    You now have to press the HOME BUTTON + LOCK SCREEN BUTTON

    It either brings up a task manager or locks the screen, No snapshot:thinking:

    To take a screen shot, you must now HOLD the VOLUME DOWN button and the POWER BUTTON..it takes about 2 seconds and you'll hear the click..hope this helps!

    Process is same but use Home button instead of Volume(-) button :)

    Thanks to the last reply from JellybeanS2.
    Using the home button and the power button does work.
    You do have to be super careful to press them together at exactly the same time though and then hold them both for a second or two.
    I hope they don't change the combo again!

    Thanks to RipGroove too.. Reading the thread again I see you answered your own question already...
    All is well again :)

    Can you please change the tag to include the keyword "screenshot" one single word.... I din't find a thread with this keyword and ended up creating one more.

    Thank you so much for your post. I was able to capture screen by simultaneously pressing home and power button and holding them together for few seconds.
