    I don't know when it happened but it did. Maybe after the ics update or after innstalling games.

    If i try to copy and paste or access the clipboard nothing happens. I tried resatering several times still no luck

    Just got a brand new one and clipboard worked for 1 day then quit. Currently searching for answers and will update you with my results. If you're trying to copy, a quick fix I've found in the meantime is click on the triangle and just emailing or texting it to myself.

    I a lot of thing but no fix for that corrupted clipboard. I finally fixed mine by doing a factory reset.

    And since i was gonna delete all anyway might ad well try JELLYBEAN update. I did for a week and all i can say is i'm back on ICS now.

    Does this happen only for Samsung or it's a general Android problem? Could we expect a fix soon or we send back the tablets?

    Hi, using tablet with ICS and suddenly lost copy/paste function. Solved it by installing Chrome browser. After used copy/paste in Chrome, it works again with regular browser. You can get Chrome as well as clipboard managers free on Playstore. Hope this helps someone not to have the pain of resetting to factory.

    I've begun running into problems with Copy/Paste on my own SGS3 & though I can copy/paste from within Chrome, I can't copy/paste from chrome to an external app.

    Anybody got any new information on this?

    It's been a while and I don't have my tablet with me at the moment. If I recall correctly, the problem is a bug with the clipboard. It get filled and you can't cut and paste anymore. What you have to do is open the clipboard and delete what's in there. Screenshots are also stored there. Obviously, they fill up your clipboard faster than just plain text.

    Edit: looked up an old post, this is if cut and paste causes your tablet to reboot. Sounds like you might have a different problem. But you might try it anyway.

    This thread may not fix the bug, that explains how to access the clipboard, which some seem to think only stores one item... How Do I Recover the Clipboard History on My Samsung Phone?
