Pixel 6a replacement screen has a green hue


I bought my pixel 6a screen replacement kit in November, but I was really busy for two months and  I was able to do it just now. So when I replaced the display, by the way, it was really easy, I get a green hue when the brightness is set to 80% or higher. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to calibrate my Pixel 6a after replacement?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Genuine or aftermarket screen? Either way I'd ask for a replacement.


Same issue for me (Pixel 6a screen purchased in November, just installed), except I'd describe the hue as yellow. It gets progressively worse from around 65% in my case. I've just contacted ifixit support with the issue; seems like a defective screen.


I just replaced the screen on my 6a and now have the same issue as James - I get a yellow hue and it gets progressively worse from 65% onwards. Did support get back to you?


Yes, they're sending out a replacement and asked me to send back the original screen (prepaid) so they can look into it. I'm really hoping the replacement screen doesn't have the same issue...

There's a lot of debate over whether or not this is a software or hardware issue (happens on some pixels straight out of the box) every update since August has claimed to remove the issue but there are still reports of it remaining.

While pixels do need to be calibrated after screen repairs, this is usually just for the fingerprint sensor.

Turning off screen smoothing should reduce the effect, however in order to fix it you'll need to either replace the screen again (hoping it is a hardware issue) or wait for another update (hoping it's a software issue).

I wish there was more advice I could offer here, but it's a widespread yet overlooked issue.
