playstation 3 hdd
i was trying 2 replace the hdd and i stripped one of the screws. does anyone kno how to remove stripped screws?

I believe you can get tools to do that, like screwdrivers with sharp bits that grip to the screw. It happened to me a while back, and I can't remember how I got it fixed, but have a look for that tool, I'm relatively sure it exists.

there is a compound u can put in the screw to get grip just go to a hardware store and ask for it

try a plyer

try putting permanent glue and imprinting the screw driver into the glue.
works for me

Mr. 33 17-06-2007 07:41 PM

that sounds like a good idea i recommend you try that

when you get it out, buy another screw.

Mr. 33 18-06-2007 04:08 PM

you can do that, it wouldn't fit because the hole the scew came out would be messed up

no it wouldnt, just the head of the screw is stripped, there would be nothing wrong w/ the threads to it

Mr. 33 18-06-2007 10:07 PM

how would you replace the screw, were would get another one like that from???????

aceshigh113 18-06-2007 10:20 PM

Mr. 33 18-06-2007 10:35 PM
