Re: how to take screenshot in Xperia SP after 4.3 update

After pressing both the power button and the low volume button simultaneously in conjuction, one would have to hold those keys down for a brief period of time to successfully complete a screenshot.

I was swearing too.
Press the power button and the volume rocker nearest the power button for about two seconds.

Very backwards move I agree.

Re: how to take screenshot in Xperia SP after 4.3 update

I can safely say the combination of the two buttons don't work for me! This is annoying on an epic level!

Re: how to take screenshot in Xperia SP after 4.3 update

I found myself having the exact problem too. But in my case, it worked before ( the combination of volume down and power button) and suddenly it doesn anymore.

 

Then i realized even holding the power button wont bring out the shut down option so i hard reset the phone.

 

The screen capture feature works again after that.

Re: how to take screenshot in Xperia SP after 4.3 update

I am having the exact same problem with my xperia SP as well. The power+volume down button only works for a brief while. Subsequently whenever i try to do the button combo, it doesn't work anymore until i hard reset the phone again. What i mean by not working is the phone goes silent mode after u press the combo. And when i press the power button only, the phone screen goes blank straight without showing the option of switching off the phone. Its freaking irritating. 

 

If Sony is seeing this i hope you will rectify this issue ASAP.

Re: how to take screenshot in Xperia SP after 4.3 update

I used to take screenshots with the combination of volume down + power button. Something changed or the buttons got damaged it does not work any more. I use 4.3 and the volume buttons and the power button works. Now i cant take screenshots with the combination that i used to.

Anyway i have issues with sony. I used to love it. The front camera got dirty from the inside. Viber calls does not work. And now this... I'm going to change brand.....

It's Vol ( - ) and Power button at the same time.
