Take screenshots of your EF81

Take screenshots of your EF81

This tutorial describes how you can make screenshots on your Siemens SXG75 and BenQ-Siemens EF81 mobile phone in the full resolution of 240x320 pixels and store them on your PC:
  • The software named "QPST" made by Qualcomm needs to be installed on your PC.
  • QPST has to be at least Version 2.7 Build 215 because earlier versions do not include the screenshot-tool. Since QPST is a manufacturer diagnostic-tool, it is not legally available. However, you should be able to find it via Google by searching for "QPST 215" ;)
  • Connect the phone via USB-datacable to your PC.
  • Create a new folder called "C:\temp" on your PC (Important!)

After the QPST-installation is complete, you will find a new group of programs in your Windows startmenu called "QPST". One menu-entry is called "Display Capture" and this one has to be started now.

After opening the Display Capture program, the first thing you have to do is clicking on the "Browse"-button to select the COM-port on which your phone is connected to the PC. The port called "Siemens Diagnostic Interface" is the correct one (take a look into your Windows System Control to find out which port-number is "Siemens Diagnostic Interface").

Image

If you cannot find the port-number for "Siemens Diagnostic Interface" in the predefined list, you have to start the tool called "QPST Configuration" to set up the ports.

Image

As soon as the phone has been connected, you will see a cryptical string on the right of the phone symbol. Now you can click on "Capture" and only a few seconds later, the screenshot appears on your PC.

Image

Finally, you have to click on "Save" to save the picture on your PC in BMP-format. Please make sure you enter the correct ending (".bmp") because there is no default for this.
