Tip & How-To about Video Game Consoles & Games
Need that controller in pieces but can't get past the center pin in the screws?
A 2mm flat head screwdriver will work just fine. They come in every mini screwdriver set and eyeglass repair kit.
Start with a screw that's close to the surface, so you can get the idea before you move on to the deep ones, which you won't be able to see.
Line the srewdriver up across the center "slot" and just to one side of the pin. Now press slowly but firmly STRAIGHT into the screw. The driver will easily move the pin to the side enough to loosen the screw. It will "pop" right into the slot and a lot of times will break the pin completely, which is good. It helps the reassembly process.
