Samsung Galaxy A51 screenshots issue

Highlighted

Is anyone having problems in taking screenshots? I can only take screenshots by moving the side of my palm on the screen or asking to take it to Bixby/Google assistant. The simple way which I want to use (volume botton down + power botton) just doesn't work! Is there any way to be able to take screenshots with the physical buttons?

You need to press the power button + volume down just once (Without holding). If you hold, it won't work.

The option of pressing the power button and volume key down should work @irenev 

 

Try a soft reboot by turning the phone off and on.

 

Personally I use the SoftKey Edge on my edge panel to take screen shots. I find it easier to do it this way.

Everytime I take a screenshot they're is no red dot but when I check the picture it has a very visible red dot like I added it with the paint marker. Can't seem to find the cause
