You might want to open the phone again and try reconnecting the connector for the new charging port. Also try rebooting it a few times. The Turn off and back on thing is very old fashion but sometimes it works! Best of luck!!

I had a similar issue with my Galaxy S4 a few years back, when I first started getting interested in repairs. I had accidentally snapped the head off the antenna so it obviously wasn’t connected. I only realized it when my signal was crap and I had to buy a new antenna. It may also be due to the charging port connector as Ian Shalongo said.

Before you go ripping your phone apart though, you should try a few things…

Try rebooting the phone.

Check for any updates. Many Pixel 2 owners had signal problems that needed an update to be fixed.

Try basic trouble shooting steps like popping the SIM out and back in, resetting network settings, etc. There is a really good guide for

Good luck and God Bless

I have tried the basic steps like taking out the sim and rebooting it multiple times and even done a factory reset on the device without any luck. I think im just going to buy a new display adhesive and rip the phone open to see what i did wrong.


Did you reconnect both ends of the antenna wire along the right side of the phone?
