2DS teardown stripped screws

Hey guys, the screen of my 2DS broke lately and I decided to fix it myself by buying a 40 euro replacement (instead of paying some jackass 80+ :P) however, on the backside I'm down to just 3 screws, where they all seem stripped especially one in particular. Any ideas on how to fix this? I've already tried lubricating them a bit with oil, and also tried to use the 'rubber band' method but neither worked.

Are you sure they're stripped and not just a different screw type?

Pretty crappy considering they're photos from my phone, but the single screw I focused in on seems to have been deformed too far.

yea you kind of totaled that screw.

 

if the rubber band method doesnt work and you have no tools for stripped screws you can try to drill out the screw.

You could try using a small Torx type screw. Create a little bigger hole for it to fit, and just screw it out.

Since you still have the wings there, just try use a larger sized phillips head screwdriver.

Been trying that, though the screws on the 2DS are really tight, I'll have another go at it later today.
