Tools required for disassembly: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.

Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Six screws need to be removed, circled below in red. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 1 Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment to release it from the rest of the phone. Once you can get some leverage, pry the battery compartment away from the phone. A little force is required. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 2 With the battery compartment removed your phone should look like below. The rubber power button may also come away, as pictured, and simply slots back in place. Remove the three screws circled in red. A ribbon connector (circled) also needs to be disconnected. It attaches like a plug and socket. Just remove the silver sticker sitting on top of it and lever the connector up to unplug. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 3 You can now pry the front cover away from the phone, as shown below. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 4 Looking from the top of the phone you can see the camera and power switch. These are held in position with double sided tape. Carefully peel them away from the phone. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 5 In the picture below you can see the camera and power switch lifted away from the phone. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 6 Now lift the circuit board to one side and you'll see another ribbon connector, circled in red. Again it attaches like a plug and socket. Lever the connector up, away from the circuit board, to unplug. The camera and volume buttons will also come loose, as pictured. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 7 With the ribbon cable now disconnected your phone will look like below. The point circled is the reverse side of the LCD screen. Push at this point and you'll see the screen raise slightly from the other side. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 8 With the screen raised slightly you can slide something like a credit card under the screen. This will release the double sided tape holding the screen in place near the top of the phone. Samsung i550 disassembly stage 9 You should now have the LCD screen removed.
