Why is my screen tinted yellow?

Day 3 or 4 of using this new screen. Finding that the screen is now tinted yellow. I have tried going through Color Correction, Night Mode and Extra Dim to no avail. It was just fine last night but this morning I turn my phone on to find it like this. Any idea of what could be causing the problem or is this just a defective part?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have the exact same problem. Just changed my screen on my 6a tester day. Dim display. Full brightness is all yellow and low brightnes it's purple'ish

Hope it's hardware and a bad display sample. Cracked the old screen, but no issues with color or brightness on that one.

Will try reversing and check old screen. Otherwise new phone. Pretty poor quality control 🤬🙄😠

I have the same issue and have had 2 additional replacement screens sent out by support (3 total) without a definitive fix. The only option I'm being given is to send back the new screen again for a refund or live with it. Really bad experience in my opinion from an "official Google partner".


Did anyone solve this? I am having the same with the original screen. If I twist the body of the phone, I can get it to go back to normal color palette momentarily.


I'm having the same issue with a screen replacement from ifixit. The yellow tint is really strong. I'll try to get a replacement from ifixit.
