I cannot take the screws out of the display assembly

I have tried and tried but cannot get any of the 6 side screws out of the display assembly on my iphone 6s. The rest of the screws in the phone all came out quite easily but I can't get any of these ones to budge at all. Any ideas on how to make it easier for these screws to come out?

Is this a good question?

He's got the crappy bag of tools that comes with a Chinese parts order. I mean...there all Chinese parts...I prefer my Best PH00. My favorite company of driver is actuall Koocu. But while I have a PH 1.5mm from them, and a PH2.0, it seems that my Best PH 00 is actually a 1.75mm driver, and I can't seem to find one from Koocu. My advice, go with a PH00. You won't be disappointed

Phillips #00 Screwdriver

EDIT: to be politically correct this my prized driver. The iFixit one will likely last longer, as I turn my driver hundreds of times a day. I'm on number four...? In the past...sev..eight? Years?

I know what the OP means, there are some cases where the phillips head screws are overtightened for the screen display side screws. I've even had one time where even with the Wiha phillips head it wouldn't get it out and had to break the screw out.

And yeah I got a few of those screw drivers, haven't used them much though.


@benjamen50 yeah, every once in awhile it happens. I also recently started wondering about how locktite can effect things like this. Man, that's all I use. I realize there are "better" drivers. But these work great for me

What size bit are you using? Try a smaller or bigger one size up for starters, but go gently as you might strip the head. I find PH00 works great and, where it doesn't, PH0 gets the job done.

Alternatively, try using a rubber band in between the screw head and the bit to increase grip.

I'm using a screwdriver supplied to me in a pack with the screen. I've also tried another screwdriver and it won't work. I have also tried the rubber band thing but it seems like it's not having the slightest effect on it. It seems like the screws themselves are stuck
