    My Nokia Lumia 925/software 8.1, won't let me take more than 1 screenshot a day. It's really driving me nuts!

    When I try it the second/third/etc time, it says 'Couldn't take screenshot'.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? Simply restarting the phone doesn't help.

    I've just tried this on my device and I can take numerous screenshots in a row. How much free space do you have on your phone?

    It might be worth trying a soft reset, which is like a factory reset but will keep all your data. Press down the volume down + power button simultaneously for 10-15 seconds or until you feel a vibration, then let us know if that has solved your problem!

    I had this exact same problem on my 930/WP8.1 and it actually went away after about a week bg itself

    Thanks, I tried the soft reset, which did let me take one more screenshot - but just one. I'm having the same error message again now...

    I have almost 2.5gb free so I'm not sure if a lack of memory is the issue because I can take as many ordinary camera photos as I like.
    I'm not sure if it's worth increasing my free memory space, but I'll have a go!

    That's lucky! I've noticed that I've had this for around a month now though.
