I was trying to replace my vita screen and accidentally stripped a screw... What do?
BTW will put pictures tomorrow... It's 2:04 am for me...


(BONUS QUESTION: so I broke my vita screen... But I have a spare broken vita with a working screen! Should I just get the broken screen Mobo and put it in the normal screen vita?)

Use a rubber band while unscrewing it and apply slow, hard force.

I had this issue when I was trying to replace my Switch backplate with a clear Translucent. And by George it was only 1 screw giving me hell out of like 20. 2 things bad happen
1.Had to break off the original backplate "RIP"
2. My right Joycon ribbon detached from the rail that charges it "RIP"
Good news is I was able to get the stripped screw out using a pair of scissors just gotta have a firm grip and twist out by force
also repaired my joycon cable by replacing it with another one.
