Does your Pixel have a broken or cracked screen? Follow this guide to replace it!

The Pixel 3a’s unreinforced display panel is fragile. If you are reusing the screen, be sure to pay special attention to the warnings in the opening procedure.

  1. Take note of the two seams on the phone: Screen seam: This seam separates the screen from the rest of the phone. This is where you should pry. Frame seam: This is where the plastic frame meets the back cover. It is held in place by screws. Do not pry at this seam.

    • Screen seam: This seam separates the screen from the rest of the phone. This is where you should pry.

    • Frame seam: This is where the plastic frame meets the back cover. It is held in place by screws. Do not pry at this seam.

    • Before you begin prying, note the following areas on the screen:

    • Screen flex cable: Do not pry deeper than instructed, or you risk damaging this cable.

    • Adhesive perimeter: Prying beyond the narrow perimeter without angling the pick will damage the LCD.

  2. Heat an iOpener and apply it to the right edge of the display for a minute.
    • Heat an iOpener and apply it to the right edge of the display for a minute.

    • You can choose to skip this step since the Pixel 3a's screen adhesive is not very strong. Heating it, however, will decrease the chance of cracking the screen.

  3. Place a suction cup near the right edge of the screen. Pull on the suction cup with strong steady force. Insert the pick into the gap, no more than 1 mm.

    • Pull on the suction cup with strong steady force.

    • Insert the pick into the gap, no more than 1 mm.

  4. This step shows how to insert the pick without damaging the LCD panel. Do this before you slice either long edges of the phone. With the pick 1 mm in the gap, pivot the pick upwards to a steep angle. At this angle, carefully push the pick into the gap about 1/4" (6 mm). The pick should slide in below the OLED panel.

    • At this angle, carefully push the pick into the gap about 1/4" (6 mm). The pick should slide in below the OLED panel.

    • Stop if you feel the point of the pick hitting a ridge. The pick may be pressing against the edge of the LCD panel. Angle the pick and try again.

  5. Slide the pick along the right edge, slicing through the adhesive. Do not insert the pick more than 1/4" (6 mm), or you may damage the screen's flex cable. Leave a pick in place to prevent the adhesive from resealing.

    Don’t make my mistake and read ahead. 6mm may be too close for comfort! 8mm is definitely too far and caused me to damage. Also be sure to read the right manual! I have an XL and it notes 5mm.

  7. As you slice around the bottom edge of the phone, do not insert the pick more than 1/4" (6 mm). Slide the pick around the bottom right corner to slice through the adhesive. If the corner feels hard to slice, apply a heated iOpener to the corner for a minute and try again.

    There is a blue plastic tape covering the digitizer and when I try to take it off it rips out something more than just the tape I think it’s pulling the magnet too

Sonuç

If your Pixel won't turn on after replacing the screen, there is a chance that the phone has silently turned on when the battery is re-connected. Hold the power button for a few seconds until the phone vibrates off. Afterwards, re-connect the screen, and try again.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Olá! Vocês sabem onde posso achar essa tela pra comprar? Obrigada!

annebfsl - Yanıt

Any word on the replacement screens?

Ernest Zamelczyk - Yanıt

We should have replacement screens in stock in the next month or two! Thanks for your patience.

Arthur Shi -

I’ve cracked not only my LCD screen, but also the frame seam (shown with orange line in step 1 above). Will you be posting a guide to replace this also, or could you incorporate into this guide? Also interested if this will be available as a spare? Thanks.

Mark Waring - Yanıt

Hi Mark,

I’m sorry to hear that! The frame seam is part of the plastic midframe—you would need to replace the midframe to replace the cracked seam. Instructions on how to do so can be found in this guide.

Because the Pixel 3a is a relatively new phone, replacement parts are harder to find for it. You can always buy a broken phone and transfer the part over, or use some adhesive to hold the cracked frame seam in place.

Can the digitizer be separated from the screen easily? It’d be a lot cheaper for me to replace the scratched glass screen and reuse digitizer. Anyone try this? Thanks!

timkeenan02 - Yanıt

The OLED display is fused to the front glass, so it will be very difficult to separate the digitizer without killing the fragile OLED panel. If it was a LCD panel, you would have a better chance de-laminating the digitizer.

Arthur Shi -

Two comments: when I bought the replacement digitizer on EBay, since the seller was packing in tools (which actually weren’t the right size) I assumed that the glue would be included, as well as speaker mesh; thankfully I didn’t trash the old speaker mesh, and the instructions pointed out that I may have to reuse it (thanks Alex and Arthur!), but on glue I got screwed big time, since I removed the old glue as the instructions suggested, before realizing I don’t have any replacement. So now my phone is sitting open on a desk while I’m waiting for the glue to arrive who knows when. You mention the “Tesa” adhesive tape, but don’t really specify which particular width did you use (which width, how much of it, when and where to apply it, etc.) which would be useful.

My second comment is that this particular guide seems to assume that the screen that’s being removed is in one piece; I imagine most people trying to do this actually have a smashed glass and could use some guidance how to deal with *that*…

Bob Jones - Yanıt

Also, some guidance what to do with the adhesive tape would be useful (apply to the frame first, or apply to the digitizer first, etc.; the more specific, the better)…

Bob Jones -

Hi Bob,

Your eBay experience is definitely not an exception! eBay kits usually contain inferior or incorrect tools. Be careful not to strip any screws!

It looks like our custom adhesive for this phone is temporarily out of stock. The Tesa adhesive card is a great alternative, as it has many widths for different applications. You can find instructions for the adhesive card here.

If you are working with custom cut adhesives, the general rule of thumb is to peel the clear backing first. Figure out which component the exposed adhesive sticks onto, and apply it there. Next, peel the colored liner to expose the remaining adhesive.

Arthur Shi -

Are the screens the original AMOLED from the google production? Are they inferior, on par or superiror to OEM parts?

Mike - Yanıt

Still no replacement screens?

(edit: I see now they are available in the US, but what about Europe?)

Paul - Yanıt

I replaced the display and when it is turned on for the first time, everything works, but when it goes on standby when I switch it on again the touchscreen doesn't work anymore.

rensan - Yanıt

Thanks, this worked a charm! The only problems I had were cleaning all the glue off everything and reattaching the screen connector - it’s a bit tricky because the cable has to bend to fit into the recessed area which makes it hard to align the connector.

Also, I couldn’t wait for a pre-made adhesive to arrive so I went to Officeworks and bought some 3mm double-sided tape called X-Press It (the high-tack version). This seems to have worked very well (but time will tell!)

J Wilson - Yanıt

Replaced screen with one on there website. Screen is kinda late on response. Also sometimes gets stuck where I can’t click on anything and have to restart the phone. Is this a problem with the screen or the phone?

Joshua - Yanıt

Hi Joshua,

That may be a screen/digitizer issue. I would suggest carefully re-seating the display connector and checking to see if there’s any debris. Otherwise, please contact our customer service and we’ll get things sorted out for you!

Buongiorno, ho sostituito lo schermo del mio pixel 3a ed i colori non mi convincono, sembrano diversi. Lo schermo è stato acquistato qui sul sito, devo presumere che si sia stortato qualche pin del connettore o è proprio lo schermo che ha una tonalità dei colori diversa?

Jo Ma - Yanıt

Ciao!

Ci dispiace che il telefono non funzioni come prima. Magari puoi provare di spegnere e riaccendere il telefono e/o di fare un reset.

Se questo non risolve il problema, rivolgiti a nostro servizio di assistenza: support@ifixit.com (in caso di un acquisto sul sito americano) indicando il tuo numero di ordine. Sarà un piacere aiutarti!

Cordiali saluti,

Claire

Claire Rapp -

can I confirm that this screen replacement is also an LCD replacement? I dropped my phone and cracked the glass but also the LCD is now not working (all black). Will this replacement fix both of those problems?

James - Yanıt

Hi James!

Yes, the part listed in the “parts required” section is a screen replacement, which includes the top glass and the OLED panel underneath it. The Pixel 3a uses an OLED panel instead of a LCD. If nothing else broke on your phone, then doing this repair should fix your display issues.

While the repair is not as difficult as some of the other Pixel phones, you should read through the guide to get a sense of the overall procedure.

Good luck on your repairs!
