I want to know how to take a screenshot on a generic Ice Cream Sandwich tablet? I believe this certain model is called the XTOUCH X708S. I already tried pressing power button + volume down and it just does its respective functionalities without taking any screenshots. The owner isn't very literate when it comes to Android devices so she doesn't know how to either.

  • How long did you keep the buttons pressed? On some devices it's just a question of timing, and I remember some have proven a bit tricky with that. – Izzy Aug 16 '13 at 12:44
  • As soon as I pressed power or volume down it would either prompt me to shut down the tablet or lower the volume until it reaches the lowest volume possible. I also tried holding it for an extend amount of time and it just stayed that way. – Propeller Aug 16 '13 at 18:59
  • You have to press both buttons simultaneously (not first one, then the other). Assuming you know that and have done so, I'd suggest contacting the support staff. – Izzy Aug 16 '13 at 20:46

Hold down the back button for 3 seconds. Still holding the back button press the power button once and release both buttons.

  • I tried to do that just now and it just turns off the display. I also tried varying lengths of holding down the on-screen back button. Still no go. – Propeller Aug 17 '13 at 14:30
