How do I remove a stripped screw in a Nintendo 3DS?
I have a Nintendo 3DS XL Pokemon Y Edition. First off, the reason that there is a stripped screw is because of me trying to fix another problem.
Like many other users, my system fell victim to the "black screen of death." Meaning the Wifi card needed some tinkering with.
The steps that are found here:
Before attempting that, I looked around to see what size screwdriver I should be using. Many suggested a size x000 screwdriver. Which I tried, but I found that one found in an eyeglass repair kit worked wonders.
Now to my problem. One of the screw that is located under one of the rubber stoppers was screwed in way too tight. The screwdriver I had would catch in the grooves of the screw, but the screw itself would not turn.
I have tried methods that involve using a rubber band and balloons. and using a flat head screwdriver in that narrow crevice proved to be difficult.
At this point, I realize I'll need a new screw, but right now, my concern is getting this one screw out.
Any tips or suggestions?
