Your Android screen may sometimes turn green after installing a new OS version. The same problem can also occur shortly after performing a system restore. The good news is that green screen issues occur quite rarely, and some users never encounter such problems. It is worth mentioning that Samsung users tend to experience these issues more frequently than other users. Well, if your screen goes green, follow the troubleshooting suggestions below to fix the problem.
How Do I Get Rid Of the Green Screen on My Android Phone?
Force Shut Down the Device
Press and hold the Power button for about ten seconds to initiate a force shutdown. Wait for a couple of minutes, restart your device, and check if the issue is gone. If it persists, force shut down your terminal three or four times in a row. If the green screen won’t go away after multiple force shutdowns, most likely, the hardware is faulty.
Perform a Hard Reset
Perform a hard reset, and check if this solution does the trick for you. To do that, press and hold the Power and Volume down keys for about 30 seconds. Release the keys when the manufacturer logo appears on the screen. Your device will restart. Wait until it fully boots, and check if the issue persists.

Go to a Repair Shop
The green screen can also indicate the display connector is loose on your device. A faulty display or motherboard can also cause similar issues. Go to an authorized repair center and have your device repaired. If you’re lucky, the repair technicians will quickly reseat the loose connector. But if the display or motherboard is faulty, they may need to replace the problematic hardware components.
Getting a new display, especially an original one, can be quite expensive. If your terminal is pretty old, you’d be better off buying a new device. Instead of paying two hundred dollars to replace the display, add a few hundred more, and you can get a brand new device.
Suppose your Android screen goes green, force shutdown the device a couple of times. Perform a hard reset, and check if this solution solves the problem. If nothing’s working, this could be a hardware-related issue. Go to a repair shop and have your terminal repaired. Did you find other ways to fix the green screen issue on Android?

It’s incredible that this problem is still around. I got this on my Note 2 (!). Seems like Samsung couldn’t care less.

Well I just feel like joining the vent. My S 22 plus is not solid green, It is a solid aqua. I have done all stated but I had a cracked screen. I’m rough on cell’s but when Samsung put out the strongest phones ever. I forget the name but the had a picture with a muddy boot and you could drop it and be clumsy and even without a protector, it was the best for me. The was a 6, 7, 8, and 9 maybe. Then they quit. So I dropped my cell at my wellness center pool and it cracked and still worked for weeks. I have insurance. But I guess I’m just going to have to buy a new one and forget it. Any ideas for a complete clutz like me?I know to get an otter case/ they didn’t have them that nigh. But what is the sturdiest phone out there? Are IPhones better now? Easy to switch all my photos too?
I fixed it!! I threw it in the fireplace and bought a different phone.
Ok so my experience was pretty bad though with the green screen issues. Please don’t be like me and be inpatient, naturally i did all the steps above. Worked but short lived and it started after a update, that phone was a newer phone. If i can express this enough, i recommend always getting a warranty on your phone even if it’s older. They will replace it just have a backup phone so you can send off your phone to be fixed. My warranty didn’t cover burnt ash. You pay for a warranty for a reason and it can be useful!!! Just a hassle to deal with.
Why should I have to pay any thing for I have a warranty on it ,it is only about 5 months old
Half my phone is green how do I fix this, it just happened . Have only had it for 6 months.
All I did was go to the settings and search for Color and fix the color to what I wanted and it totally reset it. No need to take it to a shop. No need to even reset the device. Easy to fix yourself.
I am having the same problem with half of my screen being green. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
half of my phone screen just turned green and flashes red when off,it just turned like this,i think it might be because i was taking it off and on of the charger and over heating it on accident,anyone have any ideas how to fix it?
First go to settings>search shortcut>click button shortcut>select colour correction>follow the guideline given to perform colour correction (press both volume keys for 3 seconds in MI)> colour corrected
This is how I fixed it. Drag your finger down on the screen to display where it says, Wifi, Sound, Auto Rotate, etc. For some reason my blue light filter was on. I tapped it and my screen returned to normal.
