I have an LCD module (from a mobile phone) with unknown pins. It has 40 pins and is labelled with this number: "TP-Y0100-c0".

Can anybody help me to identify the pins? I want to use it with microcontroller

Random LCDs are notoriously hard to reverse engineer, and not worth it unless you have a stack of 10,000 of them. Consider using a more common part with lots of support, like a Nokia 5110, 1602 LCD, or one of the many modules that are brought up with a quick search on eBay. These are dirt cheap, have pre-written drivers, and are going to actually work.

If you're dead set on reverse engineering it, I would start here http://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/reverse-engineering-lcd-from-ipod-nano-v6/ to learn what you're up against.
