Why can't I unscrew my battery connector?


Hi all, I have begun to repair iPhones for friends and family in hope of starting a business.  I have absolutely no problem thanks to ifixit's helpful guides.  I can always get the back cover of the phone off fine, as well as other phillips head screws inside the phone, but the one and only screw I cannot get off is the screw on the battery connector.  Does anyone else have these problems?  I have bought 5 phillips head #00 from multiple websites ( not iFixit yet because I am so reluctant to waste money on another screwdriver).  I have tested the screwdrivers on two different iPhones, but it never works on the battery connector screw, but is fine on all the others.  Any help please?
