Since i have updated my phone by Android version 4.0.3 i am not able to take a screen shot of my phone, before i used to do it by pressing Home and Power button simultaneously.

Now if i am pressing Home and Power button simultaneously it open up Task Manager.

Can someone explain me how to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance. Regards Sam

On my Galaxy S3 it is Home and Power but they need to be held in for about 1 second but it may be different on the S2

EDIT: According to this Samsung have changed the Screen shot buttons to be Volume down + power on some firmware versions and on others it is Power + home heald for about 2 seconds. Hope that helps

[Samsung Galaxy S2][Android 4.0.3] It's Down + Power for me. – geffchang Aug 8 '12 at 5:32

On my Samsung Galaxy SIII (GT-i9300) updated OTA to Android 4.3 screenshots are taken by simultaneously holding Power+Home and the screenshot is saved under /storage/emlated/0/Pictures/Screenshots.

i was on the same situation like yours.. my S2 updated about one month ago.. do press your home button together with lock or power button and hold it for about 2 seconds.. press it together not separately and hold.. best of luck.. ;)
