Use this guide to replace a cracked or faulty screen, including the display and digitizer, on your Google Pixel 2. There may also be small parts that need to be transferred from the original display to the replacement. Inspect both displays closely to make sure all relevant components are moved from the original display to the replacement.

  1. If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. This also makes a smooth surface allowing the suction cup to bond. Apply a suction cup as close to the volume button edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • Apply a suction cup as close to the volume button edge of the phone as you can while avoiding the curved edge.

    • The suction cup will not make a good seal on the curved portion of the glass.

  2. Pull up on the suction cup with firm, constant pressure and insert an opening pick between the front panel and rear case. This requires a significant amount of force and patience. If you have trouble, rock the suction cup and screen to weaken the adhesive, or apply heat with an iOpener,  heat gun, or hair dryer. This requires a significant amount of force and patience.

  3. In the following steps, extra caution is required in certain areas to avoid damage to the phone: Do not insert the pick more than 0.5 inches into the bottom edge of the phone. If the pick contacts the folded portion of the OLED panel it can damage the display.

    • Only make very shallow cuts in the upper left corner, prying deeply can damage the front-facing camera.

  4. In the following steps, use the flat of the opening pick, rather than a corner, to cut here. This will help prevent inserting the pick too deeply. Slide the opening pick up the right side of the phone to separate the display adhesive.

    • Don't try to fully separate the display yet, as a fragile ribbon cable still connects it to the phone's motherboard.

  9. Carefully lay the display down on top of the rear case as shown, making sure not to crease or tear the display ribbon cable. Remove the two 4.0 mm T5 Torx screws securing the display cable bracket.

  11. Use the point of a spudger to lift the display cable connector up and out of its socket on the motherboard. To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend, causing permanent damage.

    • If any part of your screen doesn't respond to touch after your repair re-seat this connector, making sure it clicks fully into place and that there's no dust or other obstruction in the socket.

    • During reassembly, pause here and replace the adhesive around the edges of the display.

  12. If your replacement display did not come with pre-installed speaker grilles or a front-facing camera bracket, carefully remove these parts from your old display. Follow the rest of the guide to install them on a new display. To remove the camera bracket, apply heat, then use a thin metal blade to pry the bracket away from the old screen.

    • To remove the camera bracket, apply heat, then use a thin metal blade to pry the bracket away from the old screen.

    • There are two layers that make up the speaker grille—the metal mesh grille, and a layer of thin fabric mesh behind it. Use tweezers to peel both layers off of the old screen together. Do your best to not separate those layers at all.

    • Make sure to install the grilles and gasket before applying display adhesive.

    • Cut two corners of a pre-cut adhesive card so that each side is no more than 12 mm (0.5 inches) long, or cut four 12 mm (0.5 inches) strips of double-sided adhesive.

    • The adhesive strips should be no wider than 1 mm.

    • Apply the adhesive strips to the edges of the flat side of the front-facing camera bracket. When you're done, there should be adhesive on all four edges of the camera bracket.

    • Gently press the adhesive into place using your finger or a spudger.

  13. Place the camera bracket into its slot surrounding the front-facing camera. Make sure the rounded corner of the bracket faces the upper left corner of the phone. If the bracket does not sit flush with the camera, it is not properly seated.

    • Very carefully align the lower edge of your new display with the lower edge of the phone case.

    • Set the lower edge of the screen in the case, and slowly hinge it down toward the phone case, being careful to keep it properly aligned with the case.

    • Set the screen down in the case and press down on the front-facing camera hole to ensure that the bracket is adhered to the screen.

    • Lift the screen up and away from the phone case and check that the camera bracket is adhered to the screen.

    • Disconnect the display cable.

  16. Cut a strip of 1 mm wide double-sided tape to be about 3 cm long (1.25 inches). Lay the adhesive strip along the upper edge of the earpiece speaker slot in your new display so that it's centered over the slot and touching the upper edge. The adhesive strip needs to be as close as possible to the edge of the slot without overlapping.

I removed my screen to change the battery but unfortunately I wasn’t careful enough and nicked the display on one of the corners resulting in a dead screen now.

I can replace the screen np, but I was wondering, I should be able to still connect my phone to my PC to check it is still working right? Because I have it connected now but there seems to be no power at all and my phone isn’t connecting to my PC to do a full backup. I have double checked all connections and held the power button in to try start it up or will it not start up if the screen is broken?

Have you gotten any further? I was doing a battery replacement and while removing the screen it cracked. Since I didn’t have a spare screen, I reassembled the phone with the cracked screen and saw some flashes of light but was dark. Upon attaching a replacement screen I get nothing on screen but can feel the vibration of the phone restarting. Tried a second replacement screen but no different.

I needed to back up my files and pictures from my Pixel 2 to my PC with a dead screen just yesterday. I used the “squeeze” feature and asked the Google assistant to “turn on talkback.” This allows you to blindly navigate the screen (providing the touch functions still work). You can then use this feature combined with the Google assistant and fingerprint reader to open the navigation bar and change the PC connection from “charge only” to PTP. This will allow you to transfer your files. Hope this helps.

I recommend using a playing card instead of the plastic guitar pick to cut the adhesive once you get the side pried up a bit. It took just a moment for my hand to slip and the pick went too far in and chipped the corner of the OLED display. I also was trying to avoid using heat, but using even just a little of the low setting on my Harbor Freight heat gun really helped soften the adhesive up.
