Problems with a screw in an iPhone 4

Hello guys,

I have a big problem. I wanted to switch a broken display on my iPhone.

I have the right screwdrivers for that, but 1 screw has made problems.

It was the screw, where the connector of the battery is fixed with.

The screw is now stripped and I have no idea what to do.

I've tested the other screws with my screwdriver and it I don't guess it is the screwdriver....

Can anyone helo me please? :-/

Thanks and sorry for my bad english!

If the screw's stripped, try using the next size up screwdriver & use a thin spatula like tool or a thin butter knife to put pressure from underneath the screw head, pushing it slightly upward while unscrewing it simultaneously. Usually does the trick for me. If it's sticking up and not fully in you can also use a drimmel and drill it out. Just be careful. Good luck.
