For this repair you will need the affected Doogee dagger DG550 with broken or defective LCD or screen.
1. A screwdriver tool kit.
3.A clean Work surface.
A note of warning be sure to buy the entire LCD for this phone which included the digitizer. The assembly is black as shown in the pictures.

1. Power the phone off and turn it over on the back. Remove the back cover and the battery. Also remove the SD card and SIM.
2. Start removing all the screws that are found around the edges and back of the device.

Separate the two halves of the phone at the seams.They will separate easily as long as all screws are removed.
4. Remove the three screws that hold the upper circuit board in place. Disconnect the camera module its clipped into position and will snap off. Disconnect the 2 ribbon cables one on the right and the other on the left. To remove simply flip the black and white clamp on either side and flip-up with a forceps and slide the ribbon looking connector out.
5. Flip the circuit board over and then flip the entire phone. The broken LCD on the front will come right off. Simply replace with the new one. Slide the connectors through the openings and start reconnecting the ribbon cables. Simply place everything back in place in reverse and reassemble the phone.
Go ahead and test your new screen. If everything is connected properly it should work. If something is not working do not panic. Simply disassemble and fit things together carefully again.
