How to Capture Screenshot of Nokia Asha and other s40 phones

Due to its affordability and features, there is a wide range of phones available in Asha range suiting different needs (Touch, QWERTY or both) of different people. But, Asha phones or other s40 phones are not true smartphone. They lack many features, one out of those is Screenshot capability.

Whether you need help with your phone or offering help to someone, using screenshot in explanation can be very handy to explain the procedure.

    Thanks, do you know how to connect my nokia asha to internet using my computer’s internet connection?

    • Narender February 19, 2014 at 11:32 pm #

      If you have a wifi receiver in your pc, you will be able to create a hotspot. Else, there’s no other way. You should somehow create WiFi connection.

        • Narender Singh November 2, 2014 at 10:55 am #

          Are they really screenshots? Because taking screenshots in Asha is already not supported. Are they all from WhatsApp or some other app too?

              Double tapping the back button while holding onto a message captures a screenshot of WhatsApp in Asha 500, 501, 502 and 503. Try a couple of times and you’ll learn exactly how to do that 🙂

          It will only take a Screenshot when you press the Make Dumb option.
          Make sure that Nokia Suite/PC Suite is not running the background as you do this. Exit it via the icon in the status bar.

          • abhishek September 30, 2014 at 4:33 pm #

            hi ,
            I followed the steps as you mention in this post but after clicking the Connect it’s shows the Phone model n then i click the “make Screen Dump” option but after this it’s shows the Resolution and no picture is coming on the window.

            and during the whole process there was No PC Suite/Cable driver was in background.
            Tried with NSD 2.0 and 3.0.

            • Narender Singh September 30, 2014 at 4:43 pm #

              And the phone’s screen was turned on as well?
              In that case I won’t have anything further to recommend. It has worked for me and countless other users in the past. No idea why it’s not for you 🙁

  8. abhishek September 30, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    also trying with Nokia 5233 but the problem is same.after connecting “no Screen showing up”….as connection is showing that following model is connected.

      Touch the screen and then tap on the back button 3-4 times. When done, check your gallery to find the screenshot. You’ll learn to do it perfectly after trying for 3-4 times 🙂

    • Narender Singh April 6, 2015 at 6:27 pm #

      You need to connect it to the PC and use the NSD utility to capture the current state of your phone’s screen. You cannot do that directly on the phone, unfortunately.
