In order to address concerns with the Pixel 5a 5G and specific display-related problems in the US and Japan , Google today announced a one-year extended repair program.

The 2021 mid-current ranger’s warranty is being extended for the following items despite though it was only launched on August 26, 2021.
Some display issues that result in a blank or black screen when the phone is turned on might be covered.
The front-facing camera is located in the top-left corner of the 6.34-inch FHD display of the Pixel 5a.

After your warranty expires, those who qualify may receive a free repair for a maximum of a year. After contacting Pixel Support in both countries, you can bring your Pixel 5a to an Asurion/uBreakiFix facility in the US or mail it in for repair.

Google claims that in addition to paying out of pocket, it also contacted customers who it thought may have been impacted by the problem. If you weren’t, theres a form that needs the IMEI and repair documentation for the Pixel 5a.

We got in touch with clients who we thought would be impacted by this problem. If you bought your device from the Google Store, had a problem with it before June 30, 2022, paid for a repair, but never got an email from Google, you are in AA4.

This comes after a prior initiative for fixing Pixel 4 XL battery problems was revealed in July 2021.
