Answer to: How can I remove a totally stripped small camera screw?I managed to get it out by slotting the screw with a dremel, then using an oversized flathead to VERY SLOWLY screw it out. The screw is completely ruined, but I did get it out! I don't recommend doing it this way, I think the glue would have been a better choice. The dremel cutter was bigger that the screw, and I did do some damage to the camera casing. By the by, I was actually motivated by your teardown to restart this project! This all happened about 6 months ago, and I first tried to fix the camera but was unable to get this pesky screw out. Thank you for your inspirational (and instructional) article!
