    Hello All!

    I have been using my Pixel 3a for 5 months and have absolutely loved it.

    Although last night when I was using it in a decently lit environment, on 0% brightness, the screen went into a shade of yellow tinge , kind of like the night light, but not entirely. Now I'm not sure if this is a software glitch or a hardware problem. I tried booting it into the safe mode to check if any third party apps are causing it, but no luck, the yellow tinge still prevails.

    At higher brightness this tinge is visible lesser, but i think it's still there, just the high brightness makes it a little better.

    Anyone had this problem before? I'm really hoping this is a software glitch and looking to solve it all by myself. It's definitely not possible for me to go visit a Google Pixel store at times like these to get it fixed. Fingers crossed!

    Have you ever used it at "0% brightness" before? It's not unknown for phone displays to shift colour at very low brightness.

    - Hi,

    Yes, I've had the device for 5 months now and I have used it at 0% brightness, especially in the night. This happened right when i was using it last night, which makes me think this might be a hardware problem (but i'm hoping it to be not :( )

    it could also be the blue light filter. not sure if that is the same thing as "night light" or not.

    Hi @Achesh Shetty, have you checked that 'eye protection' is not enabled. It's something I've just discovered.

    Pull down from the top, pull down a second time to expand it and show the brightness control, then swipe left and 'eye protection' is top left, it puts an amber shade on.
