Hi,

My friend tried to replace her screen but has ended up stripping screws (she claims it was already like this but I find that unlikely) on the LCD connector plate. I have attached a photo. Does anyone have any idea how I can get these bottom screws out?

Thanks 😉

I've come across this before and here is the way that I get around it. Using a file, gently create a little notch in one side of the head just deep enough to get a no 1 or 1.5 screwdriver tip into and then, holding the driver handle at an angle to the head, tap the end of the driver handle to push the edge of the head around. It works like a charm every time. 

If you need a visual aid just say and I'll mock up a quick reconstruction for you 🙂

A mock up would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi, 
Take a good quality rubber band, lay a piece of it across the screw head.
then take your screw driver place it over the head pressing through the band and try that.
I've tried it before slightly bigger screw but it did work.
You can actually get a pair of pliers made especially for the job on Amazon, I even reviewed them on their site.
If you look for the following item.
Multi function combi pliers with neji-saurus 'damaged screw' extracting jaws. Made in Japan. Engineer pz-58 (green grips)
Hope this helps.

Hi,

Tried the rubber band thing before but it wouldn't work unfortunately. Might try these pliers. Thanks for the info. 😉
