    I am trying the power button and home button method and it is not working. I am pushing and holding the power button then pushing the home button but all that happens is that I am taken to the home screen. What am I doing wrong?

    I believe you have to hit them at the same time. On my S3 you have to do it that way and sometimes it's hard to do. Which is why I prefer the swipe method for screenshots.

    Correct, Home and Power must be pressed simultaneously.

    I suddenly had this problem after previously taking hundreds of successful screenshots. Got fed up with reading well-meaning people saying "you have to press the buttons at exactly the same time" - Duh! Anyway, I eventually worked out that it was the AVG antivirus for tablets that I'd installed, since uninstalling and after reboot screenshot working perfectly again!
