"How to fix the screenshot not working issue?" is a common question frequently asked by iOS users. If you are also experiencing the same problem, don't rush to find solutions to fix it. First of all, you'll need to export important files to a computer for safekeeping so that you won't lose any important files while solving this problem. After that, you can follow the tips involved in Part 2 to solve the "screen not working" issue.

Part 1. Export Important Files from iPhone to a Computer

First of all, you'll need to back up your device with iCloud or iTunes or export your important data to a computer. Since that iTunes and iCloud will erase your device while restoring, we don't recommend using either of them. Thus, you can export some specific iPhone data with this iPhone data transfer tool - EaseUS MobiMover.

With this program, you can transfer files between iPhone and Mac or PC, or move data between two iOS devices. The data supported by EaseUS MobiMover include contacts, messages, videos, photos, and other files.

If you want to download videos from YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other websites, it's also possible with this program. 

To export iPhone data to a computer, you can:

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to PC running Windows 7 or later. Run EaseUS MobiMover and click "Phone to PC" on the screen. Then, click the "Next" button to continue.

Tip 1. Press and hold the Home and Power buttons simultaneously

It can be frustrating when you want to take a screenshot but your iPhone is frozen and unresponsive for unknown errors.

Tip 2. Force reboot your iPhone or iPad

Press and hold the Home and Power buttons together for at least 10 seconds, and your device should proceed to force a reboot. After this, your device should work well, and you can successfully take a screenshot on the iPhone.

Tip 3. Use AssistiveTouch to take a screenshot

If you don't want to press buttons, you can use AssistiveTouch to fix this issue as well.

Step 1. Go to "Settings" > "General" > "Accessibility".

Step 2. Tap on AssistiveTouch and slide it on. 

Step 3. Tap on the white virtual button on your screen > Device > More > Screenshot. 

Tip 4. Use 3D Touch

If you are using an iPhone 6s or a later device, you can add the screenshot to 3D Touch Actions.

Step 1. Enable "AssistiveTouch" as shown in Tip 3.

Step 2. Tap "Customize the Top Level Menu" and then "3D Touch Actions" to check Screenshots.
