Power supply screws broken off
I am in somewhat of (another) bother. I was taking apart my Apple TV (to upgrade to a USB power adapter) but when I went to put it back together (the USB power adapter wasn't working) the screws that hold in the (original) power adapter broke off half way.
The problem is now, (after I asked the manufacturer about the problem and they helped me fix it), I can't get the old power supply out because the left screw broke at such a height that I can't get the head of the adapter out of the ATV because it's stuck on the screw. I wasn't even screwing them in very hard and they both broke off.
Has anyone experienced this before? Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I can get it (power supply) out?
Help is much appreciated!
EDIT: Power adapter is freed!
(Thanks to jayeff for your help)
I ended up scraping some of the screw away with a pair of scissors and a drill-bit.
Is this a good question?
