How do you get out a stripped screw that is also pushed in on a 3DSXL?
Today, I was bored and said to my self “yeah, stuff it.” I decided to open up my 3DS XL because I wanted to do some sort of trial run of a bottom screen replacement, so I know what to do and all. Also because I was bored, but I’d never done anything like this before, so I’m pretty much a beginner.
Anyway, I was going through this ‘trial run’ when I must’ve pushed down on the PH0 screwdriver too hard down when I was screwing out the screws. I managed to get two out, but four remain lodged in, and they are all stripped and pushed in as if they were screwed two times farther in. I honestly think they are stripped so much, that the screw is just an indented cone. the screwdriver doesn't catch on to anything when I’m screwing out.
I searched up a question like this, but in all of the example photos or provided photos, they were not pushed in. I tried some of them anyway. I tried putting a rubber band over the screwdriver head, witch didn’t work. Then I heated the Philips's head in some boiling water, put it on the screw for 20 seconds, and screwed with another one, which also didn’t work. Before I started, because the screws were dirty, I cleaned them with rubbing alcohol on an ear-bud.
Anyway, I’m really disappointed about it, and I hope some people can help me out, or give me some good beginners advice.
By the way here is a photo of the screws:
