Help removing broken screw

Post by fireburst »

I have looked at the video on youtube but I don't seem to succeed, maybe due to the fact I can't use a hammer on it.

I have bought a project and after using screw on it, the last one broke inside of it. It's a plastic projector, not a wooden plank I can just smash or damage. It is really hard for me to find a way to get it out without damaging my projector.

Can anybody help me? I attached some images to show you.

Help removing broken screw

Depends how big it is I guess, might be possible to cut a slot in it with a Dremel, or drill and use a screw extractor, or just possibly grip it with special pliers that have teeth in the end.
