A 5 error is the camera thinks the flash is not raising. Look near the hinge for a small button and see if it is up or down. This lets the camera know is the flash is up or down and if the button is stuck down you will hear the motor fire a few times and it will then error.
Unfortunately, this is one of the problems that starts to appear on cameras with pop-up flashes. You can hit the button and pull it up at the same time. Only other option is to send it to Canon to get it repaired.
or, Get an Speedlite like the 430EXII or 580EXII. The flash unit may make your camera bigger, but the results will be much better once you learn flash techniques.

You won't be able to fix this yourself, it requires a Canon repair person to dismantle and install a new LCD screen. Fortunately the camera is new enough to warrant a repair such as this, as it will be far less to repair then to replace the camera. I don't know where in the world you are but, some house hold insurance policies cover things like this.

The 550D is called the Rebel T2i in some parts of the world. You can download the English manual and more from the manufacturer's web site at

I am going to take a guess here and say you are getting an error message. Sometimes the contacts on the lens to camera do not make good contact. If this is your issue, use some denatured alchol and a cotton swab for CAMERAS, not for cleaning your ears and clean the gold contacts. Never touch or attempt to clean the mirror inside the camera. This should be done at a camera store. let me know.
