Why won't my screwdriver open up my internal hardware?

I ordered both the pentalobe and the Phillips 000 screwdrivers in order to repair my charging port, and I got the external outer screws off, but now when I am trying to take the screen, or any other part off, the Phillips is not working.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Buy yourself a good quality screwdriver - it's well worth the investment. Sometimes a Phillips 00 screwdriver is better, as long as you are careful. Can you check the heads of the screws to insure that they are not stripped? Ie you cannot make out the 'add' symbol on them

Pick a driver with a rotating head so you can press down with one finger or hand and turn the shank with the other.
