Display Problem Half display visible

Hi @atom13 ,
If you purchased it from Google or an authorized reseller in the USA then the phone is covered by the Google International warranty.
Here is a link to the warranty which explains what the provisions are and what you have to do and what you can expect them to do.
A quick read is that if they accept your claim you will have to pay for the return of the product and they can supply at their discretion either a new or refurbished device
After replacing my Pixel C 4 times now (RMA, same issue) I finally ran out of my warranty time. All four had the same issue (split screen). This time I removed the LCD from the chassis, I found that the LCD embedded ribbon (meaning the glued ribbon on the rear of the LCD screen was partially torn/ripped (see attached photo). I believe this happens due to an engineering mistake. You see the embedded ribbon make a sharp 180 degree turn in a tight radius and spreads along the edge of the screen, distributing the image to the LCD. This tight radius turn of a very fragile ribbon makes it susceptible to being under pressure (wanting to return to its manufactured nature) this when the inside of the tablet gets hot and when the user consistently pressing in that area (i.e. game playing, etc.) the ribbon starts to fail and then rip. This IS an engineering screw up and is consistent with this symptom everyone is experiencing.
Note: the only way to repair this is to order a replacement screen ( since the ribbon is manufactured to the screen itself) …another engineering blunder.

There are no screens left on the market for the pixel C, and so we are left with zero options but to figure it out the hard way. I was 100% successful… eventually. . My best advice is to get the screen off and the front camera detached. Then with a plastic spuger and the display on, flex the cable gently in a few spots to find where your problem spot is. When you flex the problem spot the display instantly turns off. I used six pieces of electrical tape stacked on top of one another holding the display ribbon to the rest of the device (NOT TO THE BACK OF THE DISPALY). No more half corrupt screen, no more issues. It took me 8 hours of trying and trying again with tape in different places to fix this- and I imagine it will be different for each of you. Anyway, my electrical tape is in red, below. It holds the ribbon to the rest of the device, NOT to the back of the display. Hope this helps!
I took it to several shops, but no one was willing to work on it... in one case, because they had a service agreement for Google devices, and the Pixel C (along with the Pixelbook) were devices they were not allowed to do any hardware service for.
However, I have it working again, for now at least, after I took a look at the teardown and then pressed pretty hard on the screen at the place where the ribbon cable connects (center right). Here's hoping that fix lasts a while!
My tablet just started having this problem (after about two and a half years). Alas, it looks like no one has discovered any fixes.
You can contact google warranty services. You will not need additional charges.
It looks like it's a bad connection (soldering job) on the screen pushing down on the stuck screen can temporarily fix it. You need to fix the screen connection.
