How To Repair Google Pixel Screen

If you have mistakenly damaged the screen of your Google Pixel phone, do not worry! You can fix it yourself by using the correct tools, being patient, and having some technical knowledge. In this blog post, we will walk you through the process, step by step.

Please note: Repairing your phone’s screen can void its warranty. If your phone is still under warranty, consider reaching out to the manufacturer or your service provider first.

What You’ll Need

Before you can start the repair process, you’ll need several tools:

  • Replacement Google Pixel screen
  • Heat gun or a hairdryer
  • Suction cup
  • Plastic opening tools
  • Screwdriver

Screen Removal

The first step in repairing your Google Pixel’s screen is to remove the damaged one. Here’s how:

  1. Turn off your phone. This is crucial to prevent any potential short-circuits that can happen during the repair.
  2. Use the heat gun or hairdryer to warm the edges of your phone’s screen. This loosens the adhesive holding the screen in place.
  3. Attach the suction cup to the screen. Pull up gently while using the plastic opening tools to pry the screen away from the phone’s body.
  4. Be cautious around the lower part of the screen where the home button is located. The display cable is connected here, and you don’t want to damage it.

Screen Replacement

Once you’ve successfully removed the damaged screen, you can move on to replacing it with a new one:

  1. Use your screwdriver to remove the screws holding the metal plate over the display cable connector, then remove the plate itself.
  2. Disconnect the display cable connector. Now, you can fully remove the damaged screen.
  3. Connect your new screen to the display cable connector, then reattach the metal plate and screw it back into place.
  4. Before you secure the new screen, turn on your phone to check that the new screen is working properly. If it does, turn off your phone again.
  5. Finally, you can fully secure the new screen to your phone. Use your heat gun or hairdryer again to warm up the adhesive around the edges of the screen, then press it firmly into place.

And voila! You’ve successfully repaired your Google Pixel screen.

We hope this guide helps. Remember, the process requires patience and care; if at any point you feel uncomfortable performing these steps, it’s best to take your phone to a professional repair service.
