Trying to repair iPhone screen but internal screw is threaded.

I got an iPhone repair kit, when trying to change the screen, one of the screws seems to be threaded, it must have happened in assembly. I think i have just made it worse trying to take it out.

Does anyone know what i can do?

It is the 3 internal screws in a row on the display screen.

Thanks

When you say threaded, do you mean stripped?

Thanks, i brought it to a jewellers and they were able to remove the screw. I was afraid to use superglue incase it stuck the parts together.

Just need to put the rest back together.

Googled stripped screws and thats what i mean, we call it threaded in Ireland. Sorry for confusion.

This may or may not work, but here's some tips on how to remove a stripped screw: http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-a-Stripped...

My personal, very hack-ish way of doing it might be to use a very strong adhesive (superglue?) to glue a tiny screwdriver into place on the screw, and once the glue has set, you might be able to get enough torque to unscrew it. Once you have the screw off, you can use some acetone / glue remover to clean the tip of the screwdriver, and repeat if necessary.
