I have been trying to change my LCD screen but the problem I am having is that two of my screws are stripped so I can't get the old screen out, does anyone have any suggestions. I was using a T5 and T6 screw driver
Oh and it's the two screws at the top that will not come out

it happened to me once. what i did was get a tiny bit of glue (the kind where you mix two different bases, and squeeze with your fingers to make a paste - like araldite, but much thicker, used for plumbing etc) and put just enough to cover the head of the screw. then, while it was still soft, i made an impression in it, with my screwdriver. then i let it harden. after it hardened, i just removed it, like a normal screw.
another thing i tried once, was to cut the head of the screw. but u have to be careful with it, else the shaft will stay tightened in. i managed to unscrew a bit before cuttin the head off, and unscrewed the shaft with a pair of pliers.
i like your first idea better never really thought of that thanks a lot you are a big help, its nice to know you can count on other people to come up with briliant ideas when your brain is not functioning right lol
