Te. Screw stripped!


#1

Sorry. I can’t find a Q&A question tread, but lock if this is unnecessary.

Anyways. So I need to fix one of the buttons on my Madcatz TE stick, but one of the screws tops are stripped (the allen wrench doesn’t turn the screw anymore). I tried stripping it so it could fit the next size up allen head, but that didn’t work. Now I don’t know what to do. I’ve tried just putting force and just attempting to ‘break’ the screw, but that didn’t work and I’m too scared to put any more force =/.

I don’t know if this matters, but it’s the top middle screw. Any suggestons!?

Cut a slot into the screw head using rotary tool.
Then unscrew using flat head screwdriver.

Or get a screw extractor set. It’s a head that will dig into the hex hole you enlarged and you can twist it out with a wrench. Good luck. It’s an easy fix.

tried wenches + other stuff mentioned? Worse comes to worse if you have a power drill just drill through it.
