Some of these techniques might be helpful. Worst case you’ll need to pull out a rotary tool and carefully make a slot in the screw. How to Remove a Stripped Screw

We run into this problem sometimes. Try and push on the back of the screw while turning it. Often what happens is that there just ins’t enough pressure to cause the screw to turn. You can also try another screwdriver and see if that helps.
