screen shot feature problem
most of the time when I push the side button to put the phone to sleep it does a screen shot. can this be turned off?
The Samsung Fascinate, identified by model number SCH-I500, utilizes a large 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen, a 1 GHz processor, and the Android 2.1 operating system.
I believe that when one of the capacitive buttons on the bottom are held and the power is pressed, it activated the screenshot. If you swipe the buttons at the bottom, that can reset them, as well as keeping clean. The feature can be removed if the phone is rooted, I do not remember how.
I recommend foregoing the factory firmware and switching to Helly Bean, which does not have the same screenshot feature. Many issues with the phone are resolved with updated firmware.
