Introducción

Diese Anleitung zeigt direkt, wie du das Display austauschen kannst - entweder um es zu ersetzen, oder um für Reparaturen an anderen Bauteile zu gelangen.

Warnung: Das Display ist sehr stark verklebt, es gibt sehr wenig Platz, um Werkzeuge einzusetzen und du benötigst ziemlich viel Hitze zum Öffnen. Deswegen besteht die Gefahr, dass du das Display beim Austausch versehentlich beschädigst. Wenn du ein gebrochenes Display austauschen willst, spielt das keine Rolle. Im anderen Fall musst du sehr sorgfältig arbeiten und trotzdem damit rechnen, dass du das Display ersetzen musst.

  1. Schalte das Gerät aus.
    • Schalte das Gerät aus.

    • Erwärme einen iOpener um das Display zu erwärmen und den Kleber darunter aufzuweichen. Ersatzweise kannst du auch ein Heißluftgebläse oder einen Haartrockner verwenden.

    • Die Flächen in der Nähe der beiden Lautsprecher und der Mikrophone (oben und unten) haben größere Klebestellen. Diese Flächen brauchen möglicherweise eine etwas längere Erwärmzeit. Das Display sollte ungefähr zwei Minuten lang erwärmt werden.

    When reassembling, does the adhesive still hold the phone together when closed or do we need to apply more adhesive?

    Jess Haddow - Contestar

    Step 10 addresses this: there should be a plastic sheet that looks like your screen in the repair kit. This is the new adhesive for reassembly.

    Peter Karski -

    Unfortunately also cracked my display on the way in. You have to go pretty deep under the top and bottom of the screen but BARELY in around the sides, especially the corners. If I had to do it over again, I would have either tried a playing card or put some type of depth limit/mark on my pick so I didn’t go more than a few millimeters in.

    Matthew Jastremski - Contestar

    Use plenty of heat here and take your time. Start from the top, then the sides. use a gentle prying motion with the picks but don’t go too deep.

    Richard Wood - Contestar

    It’s EXTREMELY easy to crack the screen. Just buy a new display module before fixing it. The old screen will be disposable.

    Buyi Yu - Contestar

    Don’t even waste your time with the iOpener. I went straight for the hair dryer and opening picks took 30 mins to get the screen off with no issues.

    eric duchene - Contestar

    If you haven’t purchased this kit yet then stop right here. The difficulty, as stated, is very difficult. This was my first attempted repair. I spent a good hour heating the adhesive and felt good about getting the display off. I even paused to boot the phone to make sure I didn’t damage the screen before flipping it over - it worked fine still! Then I went to pull the display from the top using the picks. Shattered the corner of the screen. $129 for a new screen. At this point, the Pixel 3 is $499. I bought a new phone. Just be prepared to break the screen. Many people mention it in the comments. I felt confident I could do it. I couldn’t.

    Michael Neil - Contestar

    do yourself a favor and purchase a replacement screen when you order a battery. it’s impossible to remove the screen without damaging it no matter how careful you are.

    Andrey Gerasenkov - Contestar

    100% agree. So glad that I did. My new screen was only £20 from ebay - took ages to arrive as it came from China, but works perfectly.

    Daniel Yeo -

    I managed it - this was my first repair. It’s a lot harder than I was expecting, but totally doable! I recommend just sliding the very edge of the pick around first until you find a corner that starts to peel up. Once you can see under the screen (without bending it, of course!), you can go further in to break the stubborn adhesive globs. It took me just under 30 minutes to remove the screen.

    Peter Karski -

    My tip: Place a hot-water bottle on the screen for 2 minutes. Use the suction handle to lift one edge and insert an opening pick. Use an opening tool to cut through the adhesive at the bottom and place another opening pick in the second corner. Place the hot-water bottle on the phone again and wait 2 minutes. Cut through the sides with the opening tool (if you are focused it's nearly impossible to put this tool in too deep) and do the same on the top of the phone as on the bottom. I was afraid of the high difficulty, but it only took me 15 minutes to remove the screen with no problems. Medium difficulty.

    Dorian - Contestar

    I didn’t crack the screen, but somehow the thing wouldn’t power on after. Not sure if it was heat, or if I borked the cable somehow. New screen went in and it works great.

    Chris Jones - Contestar

    It IS possible to get the screen off without breaking it, just take your time. I spent about an hour using the included picks along with the iopener.

    That said, the adhesive is a bear to fully remove from the screen without marring it up.

    Kixwooder - Contestar

    Tip, use a gallon ziplock bag with some hot water (maybe 150 degrees). Place the phone on a towel and fold the towel over and shield the part you aren’t working on, then use the bag for ~30s to apply and re-apply heat as needed. I first heated up the entire phone and ended up separating the screen from the glass (thus breaking the screen). The second time I did it, I just heated up one section at a time and I succeeded in removing the screen without breaking it.

    Daniel Beardsley - Contestar

    Couldn’t get it open with anything, including dunking it (wrapped in a ziplock) in freshly boiled water for from 2 to 20 minutes. But then I managed to get it with only minor discolorations along top and bottom edges (which are noticeable when the screen is off or on dark backgrounds).

    What did the trick was setting the heat gun to 100°C and heating it really up close for 2 minutes. 60°C didn’t do squat, but 80-90°C would probably work better, without damaging the screen.

    With that done, the glass required a little bit of force to lift up, force of gravity on the rest of the phone wasn’t enough.

    gelraenua - Contestar

    I attempted this with an iOpener and gave up as it didn’t seem to heat it enough to lift the edge of the screen.

    I remembered I had a heat gun at that point (duh, should’ve been what I started with). I had the gun at 350 initially and moved it around relatively quickly. But, discovered that if I lingered a little it discolored the screen (tested and the screen still works where it’s discolored, but it’s slightly off-color at one corner). I ended up using 200 deg (F) instead and moved more slowly. I put slight pressure on with the suction cup while heating the edges and finally got a corner up. Plopped a pick in there and used another pick to slowly cut along that edge while heating where cutting. I kept a pick plopped in each corner as I went. Once I got most of the screen free I grabbed the edges of the screen to keep upward pressure from the glue and heated any places that were still stuck with the heat gun and cut the last strands with another pick.

    TL;DR - The iOpener doesn’t seem sufficient for this job.

    Jonathan Stucklen - Contestar

  2. In den folgenden Schritten wirst du die Klebeverbindung zwischen Bildschirmglas und Rahmen des Pixels auftrennen. Zur Verdeutlichung ist die Rückseite des Displays auf der linken Seite gezeigt. Beachte den schmalen Freiraum zwischen der Seitenkante der Displayeinheit und dem OLED Panel. (Die Einfassungen zeigen diesen Abstand auf der Vorderseite an.) Wenn du ein Öffnungswerkzeug an den Seiten tiefer als 1,5 mm einsetzt, oder oben und unten mehr als 9 mm, kannst du das Display dauerhaft beschädigen.

    For reference, the iFixit opening tool (the blue prybar) has pry hooks of about 1.5-2mm in length.

    You can measure your tools to 1-2mm and mark them on some, and 9mm on others, so that you have an indicator line for depth.

    You can also use the line from the top/bottom and side bezels as a guide for how deep to “slice” with the pick.

    Mr. Porter - Contestar

    The display panel consists of two components. The outer component is a glass panel with a digitizer fused onto it, and the second component is a fragile AMOLED panel with electronic circuitry and a ribbon cable that connects it to the phone internals. The digitizer and AMOLED panel both extend to within 1.5mm of the sides of the glass panel. To avoid destroying the AMOLED panel when removing the display panel, start at the bottom (Steps 3 and 4) and do not insert any opening or cutting tools deeper than 1.5mm at the sides or 9mm at the top or bottom (Steps 4 and 5). [Maybe add this text to Step 2 to help prevent others destroying the AMOLED panel].

    Alan Upson - Contestar

    Update on my earlier post: my replacement display panel (pre-owned) appears to be a different construction to my original display panel in that the AMOLED panel, digitizer and glass panel are bonded together in some way, so they appear to be a single component. I guess it is possible that my original display panel could have been like this at first, and that I managed to separate the AMOLED panel from the digitizer as I removed the display panel from the phone, but there is no sign of any adhesive.

  3. Ziehe das Display mit einem  Saugheber nach oben und erzeuge einen kleinen Spalt zwischen Display und dem Gehäuse des Smartphones. Wenn dein Display zerbrochen ist, dann  beklebe es mit Paketband, so dass  der Saugheber besser haften kann und Glassplitter nicht so leicht herausspringen können.

    the glass will have to be extremely hot to do this, i was able to achieve it by setting the phone of the heated bed of a 3d printer and setting it to 110 C .

    alex chargeer - Contestar

    I used a hairdryer, moving back and forth over the area I was planning on using the suction cup at first, with my finger near the metal chassis so I could feel if it was getting absurdly hot. I would then suction a little, and not see any change. Heat again, suction again, seeing movement, but not enough space to get a tool in. Repeat this several times until you’re just able to get the tip of a tool in there, then continue to gently pull up with the suction cup while gently “slicing” around the edge until you’ve got a few spots free. (I’ve got another tip in the comments on the next step.)

    Mr. Porter - Contestar

    This worked like a charm with lots of patience, stopping and drying every step and cutting the glue when I can see it clearly and move further down.

    Krishna Devarakonda -

    Tip one: ONLY FOCUS ON HALF THE SCREEN AT A TIME. As you get further along, you can start moving back and forth, but start focusing only on the upper or lower half.

    NEXT, as I started the slicing process, I would leave a pick in on each of the sides as I got to them, to kind of save my spot in case my pick slipped out. If you feel like you’re not getting anywhere, apply some light heat across the edges of the entire display, depending on how far in you are.

    When you’re on the last few bits, get a headlamp on and hold the phone so you can see in between the screen and rest of the body. As you gently lift the screen, you can see inside and slice the remaining strands and gunked up areas with less fear of damaging other components, because you’ll be lifting them away.

    Mr. Porter - Contestar

  4. Setze ein Plektrum oder eine Spielkarte in den Spalt zwischen Rahmen und Displayeinheit ein. Schiebe das Plektrum um die Ecke des Displays und trenne so den Kleber auf, mit dem es befestigt ist. Versuche nicht, das Display hochzuhebeln oder anzuheben. Schiebe das Plektrum nur herum, um den Kleber aufzutrennen.

    • Das Display ist äußerst empfindlich. Wenn du dein Display wiederverwenden willst, dann musst du darauf achten, dass du dein Werkzeug nur soweit einsetzt, bis der Kleber aufgetrennt ist. Wenn du das Werkzeug zu tief einsetzt, kannst du das OLED Panel unter der Glasscheibe beschädigen.

    I needed a stronger tool than the provided guitar picks to actually get between the glass and the frame. Had to use a metal tool to get in there. Once I could get in, things went fairly smoothly.

    Only mistake after that was not getting a great seal on the glue when reassembling the phone so now the glass toward the bottom of the screen doesn’t completely stay in place. :(

    Steve Johnson - Contestar

    Dang! Metal is a scary choice, but I’m glad it worked out for the most part. That’s good to know. You could try re-heating the adhesive around the part of the screen that isn’t staying in place, and then putting the phone under a stack of books for an hour or so! That might get it to seal up completely.

    Taylor Dixon -

    I got the glass free by using plenty of heat, an x-acto knife to start the opening and playing cards under the glass to break the glue. I did not use the suction cup because it kept feeling like it would break the glass.

    Michael Hendricks - Contestar

    +1 to Michael Hendricks. I ended up putting mine in my toaster oven (which worked splendidly), and I did have to use an x-acto knife to get it started. After that, it was possible to continue using the picks, but DON’T EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO REUSE THE SAME DISPLAY. New displays are $35 on ebay. Just get a new one before you start the work or you’ll almost certainly be without a phone for a week.

    Kael Shipman - Contestar

    I was super careful based on all the comments to not even get close to touching the back of the screen. But when reassembled I get nothing but a vibration when turning the phone on.

    I used the suction cup, lotsa heat, started from the top and pried screen off towards the bottom just barely teasing the edges with a special pick that I had from previous battery replacements (special pick limits penetration). It seemed to come off unscathed. But the results say otherwise.

    GUNTIS CIRCENIS - Contestar

    Woof, like others have said, it’s incredibly easy to ruin the screen in this process. Kind of impossible to tell if you’re getting the adhesive or the screen with your tools.

    Definitely have a replacement if you really want to have a working phone after this step.

    Kris - Contestar

    I agree with what other have stated. I tried both the iOpener and a hair dryer but was never able to get the suction cup to pull the glass up at all. I saw other instructions that use a “Thin Metal Pry Tool” to get under the glass. I improvised with some very thin metal I found from some parts I have available and that is able to get under even without heating. You don’t use the metal to pry open at all, just to get under the glass enough to get some thin cards under to remove the seal. The picks are too thick for any of these steps it seems. Just sliding the picks under the glass as shown seemed to be enough bending that I saw some hairline cracks in the glass. But I also damaged the OLED in the process. So, as others have reported, I too ended up with a dead screen. Waiting for my new one to arrive soon.

    I think it would be good to show more information about how you expect this step to work as it doesn’t seem to work as shown here. Or, look up some of the other resources online that work better.

    William Buerger - Contestar

    I can’t see any way this can be done without screwing up the screen. I bought a replacement screen and then didn’t have to worry.

    Daniel Yeo - Contestar

    Would it be possible to use a specially made opening pick that is protruding no more than 1.5mm from a thicker section that could run along the sides and top of the device to help ensure that the pick would not penetrate more than 1.5mm into the device? If suitably designed, it could probably be made of metal. Are any such specially made opening picks available from iFixit or elsewhere?

    Alan Upson - Contestar

    Alan, this is an excellent idea! We have had tools like that in the past, but since every device is different it’s hard to make one pick that will work for every device. You might be able to find something like that somewhere else online, I’m not sure. Another thing you can do is measure your pick and mark 1.5 mm with a marker so you have a visual indication of how far your pick should go in!

    Taylor Dixon -

  5. Schiebe das Plektrum weiter um das Gerät herum, bis der Kleber aufgeschnitten ist. Sei an den Seiten besonders vorsichtig, hier ist der Rahmen nur 1,5 mm breit. Sei an den Seiten besonders vorsichtig, hier ist der Rahmen nur 1,5 mm breit.
    • Schiebe das Plektrum weiter um das Gerät herum, bis der Kleber aufgeschnitten ist.

    • Sei an den Seiten besonders vorsichtig, hier ist der Rahmen nur 1,5 mm breit.

    there should be two notes here - “while adhesive is still warm, REMOVE ALL OF IT or you would be fcked later.” additionally, “ensure you are not separating the OLED from the glass as this will somehow render the screen completely useless”

    Liz Zelnick - Contestar

    Agreed. I just removed the glass from the OLED display…oopss. I’m hosed.

    Joshua Brown - Contestar

    Removing the adhesive while it is warm is a great idea!

    Re: removing the glass from the OLED, as long as you aren’t inserting your opening pick deeper than Step 2 recommends, you should be safe from separating the glass and the display panel unless you are using a ton of heat, in which case you might be frying the display anyway!

    Taylor Dixon - Contestar

    I didn’t apply enough heat during this process and subsequently separated the digitizer from the glass, instead of the whole assembly from the case. I had 3/4 of the screen free from the case when I became impatient and just tried to muscle my way through the rest of the adhesive. It is important to stop and apply more heat during this process any time it starts feeling difficult to move the pick through the adhesive, otherwise you risk breaking the screen and having to get a whole new one.

    Britton Wickes - Contestar

    I got the glass off without cracking anything, but now that it’s back together it doesn’t seem to work. Could it have been damaged from the heat? It flickers green for an instant when plugging in to power or pressing the power button.

    Nicholas Cox - Contestar

    Any recommendations on adhesive when reinstalling? I see there is a pre-made adhesive for sale here for $5.99. Don’t know if 3m double-sided tape would work just as well, or what thickness to use. Any tips would be much appreciated.

    Phillip - Contestar

    Hey Phillip! I’d go with the pre-made adhesive to save yourself the headache of measurement, cutting, and having a whole roll of 3M tape you might not need. It would definitely work if that’s what you prefer though!

    Here’s a guide for applying the pre-made adhesive that you can follow, or just curb from if you use the 3M tape! Google Pixel Display Adhesive Installation

    Taylor Dixon - Contestar

    • Wenn der Kleber aufgetrennt ist, dann kannst du das Display langsam hochheben und vorsichtig über die Unterkante umklappen, so dass es dann wie gezeigt, mit der Scheibe nach unten, liegt.

    • Denke dran, dass überall Kleber ist, du solltest ein Plektrum zwischen Display und Scheibe legen, damit das klebrige Zeug nicht überall verteilt wird.

    • Versuche noch nicht, das Display ganz zu entfernen, es ist noch mit einem empfindlichen Flachbandkabel angeschlossen. Beanspruche das Kabel nicht zu stark, wenn du das Display hinlegst.

    Ruined my Pixel following these instructions. Ribbon cable is at bottom (chin) of phone and not as shown in pictures. My advice take it somewhere and have them replace the battery, that way when they break it it’s their fault.

    John Simpson - Contestar

    I’m sorry the instructions weren’t clear, John! I’ve updated the guide to better illustrate where ribbon cable is and how to work around it.

    Taylor Dixon -

    And another note - I used the suction cup to lift the glass. Unfortunately the glass cracked at that point…bummer. I would update this to describe HOW to lift the glass. As in, LIGHTLY lift up with the suction cup while mostly lifting up on the guitar picks to help separate..

    Joshua Brown - Contestar

    No, don’t use the guitar picks to lift, those are to “cut”. The suction cup is only to help you get the first pick in, after that, all you’re doing is separating glue so you can lift the screen with your fingers.

    Mr. Porter -

    DO NOT “flip it over vertically toward the bottom of the device, and rest it on its face, as shown. “ unless you want to spend your day getting adhesive off the screen. Instead get the screw driver ready (step 7) before you start this step.

    eric duchene - Contestar

    That occurred to me when I reached this step. I used an opening pick (since I already had them on hand) and rested it between the midframe and screen to avoid that very issue. I added it to the guide, now I just hope it gets verified!

    Mr. Porter -

    Gut bewährt hat sich eine Heißluftpistole mit Temperaturvorwahl - möglichst mit optional aufgesteckter Flachdüse. Bei 120-140 Grad Celsius kann man die Wärme zielgerichtet und dosiert auf den zu lösenden Teil des Displays ausrichten. Nach Ansetzen des Saughebers solange erwärmen, bis sich der benötigte Spalt für das Plektrum zeigt, und danach den Displayrand weiter zonenweise vorsichtig erwärmen, bis sich das Display ohne Druck und damit ohne Bruchgefahr abnehmen lässt.

    scratched down to the silver component below.

    i broke the screen while replacing my battery, will this brick my phone? or would a new screen still work?

    anarchy_in_oz - Contestar

    Hey anarchy, your phone should still be okay! Most of the midframe assembly (including the stuff you scratched up) is there to reduce signal interference and provide structure for the fragile screen, so you most likely didn’t do any bricking! If your cracked screen still functions, you can plug that back in and make sure everything is okay before you pull the trigger on a new one. Hope this helps!

    Using extreme care, another broken screen here. Instead of coming off together, the adhesive separated between the outer glass and the digitizer panel/screen. Both were damaged in the process. Waste of time and money.

    Chris Kahn - Contestar

    Yes, me too. I’d like advice as to how to vary the glue heating process for this to not occur. Does the heat need to be applied for longer so the deeper OLED panel releases without pulling from the glass?

    Joshua Brown - Contestar

    I spent about an hour and a half working on removing my screen. It took many bursts of heat (from a hair dryer, I lost patience for the iOpener), some suction, more heat, more suction…. etc, until I was able to start moving the pick around. Even then I still applied heat from time to time to help the adhesive move along.

    Mr. Porter -

hey, is the replacement screen meant to have adhesive on it already?

noisycrow - Contestar

No, it does not. Just replaced my screen. The residual adhesive is good enough to keep it on temporarily, but I’m going to a local repair shop to grab something better.

Vitaliy Isikov -

It’s also best to, if you haven’t already, look at your replacement part to get a feeling of how far you can go with the guitar pick or pry tool. It’s around 1/16th of an inch on the sides so you don’t want to go too far in and damage the display

Jason Stewart - Contestar

Honestly, this felt easier than what the guide advised, definitely invest in the ifixit opening kit, made this a breeze. Hardest part was just scrapping the leftover residue off after removing the cracked screen.

Craig Beery II - Contestar

You can use any adhesive for screen replacements for this screen. I personally used a double-sided tape 2 mm wide. The replacement screen does not usually come with the fabric covering the phone speakers, so make sure to transfer it from your old screen.

Mingye Wang - Contestar

How do I remove the screen from the LCD. There are plenty of screens only on Amazon for pretty cheap and my LCD is working perfectly fine.

Ashley Carpenter - Contestar

I can absolutely see how difficult this job is if your screen isn’t already broken. (Un)Luckily for me, my screen was already broken, so I removed the glass, then the actual LCD, while breaking them even more along the way. The screen in the Pixel is SO thin and delicate, I was scared I was gonna break the new one before even installing it. But once the old one is out, the install is a breeze, granted that your metal edges aren’t too dented.

I used a space heater and held the phone in front of it for about 60 seconds at a time to soften the adhesive. I also used a razor blade to “slice” through the adhesive.

Used screen was perfect quality and worked fine.

Brandon Moorer - Contestar

My experience:

1) I used a heat gun (ZeopoCase Mini Hot Air Gun - $20 Amazon)

2) My original screen wasn’t cracked, and it took a long time to break apart the old adhesive, even with the gun. More muscle than I would have expected.

3) Removing the old screen worked per instructions.

4) Removing the old adhesive was a MONSTER job. You’ll need to buy 91% alcohol and swabs FIRST, so that should be added to the recipe’s ingredients. Still, even with the alcohol and scraping, I never got it all off, and you risk smearing it all over the insides of the phone. Not good.

5) Kit does NOT include replacement adhesive. I bought it separately, and that came with no instructions. It’s a giant die cut slab of adhesive, and you only need the outer bits. This isn’t clear at all w/o instructions.

6) Seating the connector is a bit of guesswork.

7) Had to swap out the grill cover. That should be added to the guide.

8) Have to heat the new adhesive again before you clamp it all down.

So far, tho, it’s working.

chris.solo4 - Contestar

Hey Chris, I’m glad to hear everything went alright for the most part! If you bought the kit from us, it should definitely have come with the replacement adhesive, I’m sorry about that. I am currently writing a guide about how to use the replacement adhesive, it will be ready soon—I’ll be sure to include all those details you were looking for. Thank you for your feedback!

Taylor Dixon -

This same procedure apply to google Pixel 3?

brucasal - Contestar

I got the glass off with a blow dryer and some playing cards. Unfortunately, I stuck a playing card too far into the bottom of the display and accidentally cut the display cable. Pay close attention to the warning about how deep you can insert instruments under the glass.

Michael Hendricks - Contestar

If you simply get one of the corners to open with a little bit of heat and a razor blade, you can use a syringe to add ISO to get rid of most of that adhesive. It doesn’t damage the original screen (which can be recycled) and it makes the screen come off extremely easy.

Luke Piper - Contestar

A lot of the padding underneath the screen came off. A lot of it is stuck to the display. I ordered a new display, will the lack of padding affect the function of the pixel?

Hobin Lee - Contestar

Hobin, the lack of padding shouldn’t affect the function of your Pixel. It does, however, provide a bit of support for the screen, so maybe just be a little more careful about applying pressure to the new screen after you install it!

I got my replacement screen for my pixel phone, but the replacement screen has a blue plastic cover on the back, which I believe needs to come off. But as I started removing it, a sticky black layer started coming off as well. Is this what is supposed to happen? Thank you.

If your phone screen is turning black and unresponsive during calls, it’s because the proximity sensor is covered up. For whatever reason, the tinting or paint on the proximity sensor window on the the screen iFixit shipped caused my phone to always register as covered up. I fixed this by scratching off the paint on the proximity sensor window (the little bubble just above the screen) with a tiny piece of sandpaper and it works good as new.
