I have a Pixel 3, and I picked up my phone after momentarily charging it on a wireless pad (for about 30 minutes) this morning, as I usually do, and now it has a green line near the right edge of the screen.

Seeing as it is a display issue, I will probably need to get it replaced.

In the meantime, though, logistics make this difficult, and I would much rather have a black streak on the side than a green one.

Is there any way I can get the phone to just disable a vertical line of pixels?

The touch aspect of the screen works fine, so I don't want to modify that.

  • As far as this site goes, I can't really find another question with the tag about the green/pink lines others have reported. I've tried restarting my phone in safe mode, but the line appears whenever the display turns on, even slightly. – Max Candocia Jun 5 '20 at 17:56
  • I've seen some articles about Samsung's AMOLED, and how some programs/apps can disable pixels for that screen type, but my model uses OLED. – Max Candocia Jun 5 '20 at 17:57
  • Most of the solutions I've found involve replacing the screen, but since I can't do that for logistical reasons right now, disabling the individual pixels themselves seems like it would be a straightforward way to reduce the visual impact. – Max Candocia Jun 5 '20 at 17:59
