We sell a set of precision screw extractors that are designed to grip stripped screws. They are a good method for removing a screw in this dilemma. Other methods include cutting a notch in the screw with a Dremel tool to allow a flathead driver to remove it, or using some super glue to extract the screw. However, on such a small component, these two other methods can be dangerous to the device, so trying the screw extractor set first might be your best choice.
Hope this helps! Good luck!
