If you break your A50 screen, you are not alone. Many people across Australia are having the same problem. Is it because you sat on it or you just dropped your phone from a higher place? No matter what happened, you are now stuck with a cracked screen and the only thing you can do is fix it.

When an accident like this happens, users can choose between two options. If you are inexperienced, you can take your phone to a repair store and leave the device in the hands of a professional technician and pay high prices. Or you can fix your screen all by yourself.

To get started turn off your A50 completely to avoid damaging it during the repair. Press the on/off button for about three seconds until “Switch off” appears then confirm it by taping on it.

2) Extract SIM & SD drawer

Insert SIM extractor into the small hole of the SIM drawer, which is on the left side of the phone. Exert a slight pressure and SIM drawer will eject himself.

3) Heat the back of the phone

To remove the back cover you will need a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the glue that holds it. Use a hairdryer or a heat gun to heat the back of the phone for 2 to 3 minutes to soften the glue that holds it. If you feel the resistance in the next steps do not hesitate to heat the back for a few more minutes.

4) Remove back cover

Insert the spatula between the rear window and the frame to create a slight opening and then insert a pick to take over. Gently slide the pick all the way around the rear window (Try not to stick the pick in too far because that could damage the flex cables). Now you can lift the back of the phone.

5) Remove internal chassis

Unscrew the 13 screws using the Philips screwdriver and start unclipping the internal frame form the rest of the phone by inserting spatula into the first corner. Unclip the entire top of the phone leveraging the spatula. Continue the operation on all sides of the A50.

Now you can gently separate the internal chassis from the rest of the Samsung Galaxy A50.

This time use a flat screwdriver to dislodge and extract the vibrator (Spatula is too wide to use it here).

9) Heat the front

Flip your Galaxy A50 to heat the front side of the battery for a few seconds to soften the glue that holds the battery. Watch out not to heat the battery directly. Also do not overheat the center of the LCD for a long time because you may damage it.
