Since volume-down + power key doesn't work, is it possible to take screenshots on Sony Xperia Neo l? If so, how?


Press and hold Power button and Volume-down button exactly at the same time and hold them there until you take a screenshot.(in ICS)

I tried it now. And its working.

  • Take a look at the main post ;) The poster explains that vol down+power doesn't work – spences10 Jan 22 '13 at 12:27

    He didn't get it work, may be because of timing issue...I tried it and failed so many times, but when I click at same time it works. – Akhil Jan 22 '13 at 12:29
  • Good point, I thought it was a default feature on Android 4.+ but it may have been disabled or the xperia neo may be on 2.3 I dont know really – spences10 Jan 22 '13 at 12:35
  • Just checked and it comes with 2.3 upgradeable to 4.0 so maybe on 2.3 still? – spences10 Jan 22 '13 at 12:40
  • Nope. Neo L is coming with ICS not GingerBread gsmarena.com/sony_xperia_neo_l-4647.php – Akhil Jan 22 '13 at 12:45

Use monkeyrunner or run the DDMS and take a screenshot.

  • I googled it before asking here, I'm interested in tricks where no third party apps is used for that purpose. Thank you for your answer anyway. – Gigili Jan 22 '13 at 13:41
  • They're not third party apps they are the tools provided by Google for situations like this, I don't understand why anyone would mark down the answer. A third party app would require root access to the device, the tools I linked are from Google – spences10 Jan 22 '13 at 14:26

Press Power off and volume key down at the same time for 2 secs...it will take a screen shot..

    How is this different than the solution provided in this answer or this other answer? – ale Mar 18 '13 at 16:49
  • Have you confirmed that this works on the Xperia Neo? – ZnewmaN Mar 18 '13 at 20:03

I know this isn't the easiest way but if you are desperate you can do This...But before you do that, try hitting the power button slightly before you press down the volume-down key. If that doesn't work than maybe Sony just overlooked this feature on the update.
