Why Does My Google Pixel 8 Screen Turn Green After Update and How To Fix It

A recent update to your Google Pixel 8 may have caused a frustrating green screen issue. This problem can be caused by software conflicts, outdated settings, or even a hardware issue.

Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to troubleshoot and potentially resolve the green screen issue on your Google Pixel 8.

Solution 1: Restart Your Phone

A simple restart often solves temporary glitches within the operating system that might be causing the screen discoloration. To restart:

  1. Press and hold the power button on your Pixel 8.
  2. Tap the “Restart” option on the screen.

Solution 2: Check Display Settings

Incorrect display settings may contribute to the green screen issue. Ensure your color mode is set correctly.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap Display
  3. Select Colors
  4. Select either Natural or Boosted (avoid the Adaptive setting)

Solution 3: Adjust Screen Brightness

Extreme brightness levels can sometimes trigger a green tint. Lower the screen brightness and see if it resolves the issue.

  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap Display
  3. Adjust the brightness slider

Solution 4: Toggle Night Light

Night Light adds a warm color filter which may be contributing to the green screen issue. Disable it to see if it makes a difference.

  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap Display
  3. Tap Night Light
  4. Toggle Night Light off.

Solution 5: Disable Adaptive Battery

Adaptive Battery can sometimes interfere with display functionality to conserve power. Turning it off can potentially fix the issue.

  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap Battery
  3. Tap Battery Saver
  4. Tap Adaptive Battery
  5. Toggle the switch next to Use Adaptive Battery off.

Solution 6: Update Apps

Outdated apps can sometimes cause compatibility issues. Updating all your apps may resolve the issue.

  1. Open the Google Play Store app
  2. Tap on your profile icon
  3. Select Manage apps & device
  4. Tap Update All

Solution 7: Enable Safe Mode

Safe mode can help determine if a third-party app is causing the problem. If the green screen disappears in safe mode, a rogue app is likely the culprit.

To boot into safe mode:

  1. Press and hold the power button.
  2. Touch and hold the “Power off” option.
  3. Tap “OK” to reboot into Safe Mode.

If the green screen disappears in Safe mode, a third-party app is the culprit. In this case, uninstalling recently installed apps individually is recommended.

Solution 8: Clear System Cache

A corrupted system cache can lead to display problems. Clearing the cache can refresh the system.

  1. Turn off your phone
  2. Press and hold the Power button and the Volume down button simultaneously
  3. Select Wipe cache partition (use volume buttons to navigate, power to select)
  4. Select Yes to confirm

Solution 9: Check for System Updates

Software updates frequently include fixes for bugs and glitches from prior updates. To check for and install any available updates:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap System.
  3. Tap System update.
  4. Tap Check for update and install any available updates.

Solution 10: Factory Reset (Last Resort)

If all else fails, a factory reset returns your phone to its original settings, but it erases all data. Back up your important files first then proceed with these steps:

  1. Then, go to Settings.
  2. Tap System.
  3. Select Reset options.
  4. Tap Erase all data (factory reset).
  5. Follow the prompts to complete the factory reset. Remember to restore your data afterwards.

Seek Hardware Repair/Replacement

If none of the software solutions work, the problem might be hardware-related. A faulty display or connector issues could be causing the green screen.
