    Hi, i just upgraded my Galaxy Blaze 4g to ICS and now i am not able to take a screenshot as i used to before (home+lock keys).
    I also tried all other combinations with the lock key but to no avail (That includes volume down + lock and other ways of talking screenshots in Galaxy SII etc)
    Can somebody please help me (and other upgraded Blazers) out here.

    Might be a configurable item in the settings, I know it is on my Samsung tablet running ICS.

    Hi spk, welcome to the forums. :ciao:

    I don't have this phone, so I could be totally off base. Try holding the power button and your home button at the same time.

    Hi spk - I'm running into the same issue. Home+Power before ICS update used to take a screenshot, but after ICS update, it no longer does :(

    I did some searching but it looks like its still Power + Home, but you have to hold it longer. Does that work?

    Not as far as I can tell...holding the Home for a long time (a couple of seconds) , even with Power pressed, eventually brings up a list of open apps and a link to Task Manager. Same thing starting with Power pressed and then holding down Home.

    Ah, I got it working...it's a timing thing.

    So, I start with pressing the Power button, but immediately after pressing that (split-second), I press the Home button and hold it down...then it takes the screenshot.

    Yeah that works for me too. Had been trying the power + volume down buttons like a bunch of other websites say. Thanks.

    That's dumb that they changed it to the power and home button on the I9100 too! I liked the volume down and power buttons better. haha.
    Glad someone figured this out!!
