    the home button now takes a screenshot and i can't turn on my phone with the power button, but i can activate the screen by plugging it in to a charger. this happened very suddenly. i was walking and playing a video on youtube. when i pulled my phone out the screen had locked (presumably because i accidentally hit the power button) and i could no longer turn the screen on. i dropped my phone on the ground in october because the hip-clip i was using (i know, lame) broke when i pushed my phone into it, which broke the screen. nothing has happened to it since, and i've had no problems until this.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? It's possible the Power button is stuck in a pressed state--assuming you have a Samsung phone, this could explain why pressing the Home button alone triggers a screenshot (since the phone thinks you're also pressing Power).
