    Every time I take a screenshot (regardless of method: via preview, screenshot, selection or screen mode shortcuts), it always comes out all black! Luckily I have Snapz Pro X for video capture so I can show you what I mean, but it's much more of a pain to use on a regular basis. This has been going on for about a week and a half now.

    I tried the suggestions in this thread but I had no luck (I didn't reset the PRAM, I was hoping there was a better alternative). Is there any solution for this?

    Have you opened it in preview to be sure it isn't just a quicklook problem?

    Also, I asume you tried a simple restart?

    Have you installed anything that would modify the system recently?

    Yes. The image is actually black. Other images are not.

    Of course.

    Not that I know of. I've run several anti-virus checks as well (ClamXav and iAntiVirus) to make sure it's not that either.
