Unfortunately, the two screws are not the problem. In fact, they very rarely require adjustment. Only when the engine is old and worn.
The problem is the timing, that is in need of adjustment.
You need to try and find the old screw settings, (if you can).
To adjust the timing, you can either adjust the gap, between the magneto, and the contact, or, the gap on the plug.
Good luck with that,
btw, don't forget to rate:)

Chokes and Dies when cutting

Adjust the choke or carburetor. In case your chainsaw stalls when the engine is idling, ensure that the choke is set properly. To do so, first try releasing it to adjust it, and then move the plate and tighten all screws once again. To loosen any grit, spray carburetor cleaner spray on the choke's shaft. The carburetor may also need to be adjusted; consult your owner's manual which will guide you on resetting the idle mix screw.

Factory H+L neadle setting fo ryobi blwr/vac#ry08554/ry09907

Many small carburator needles have plastic caps on them to limit how far they can be adjusted. If you need to go past their limited settings you'll have to break those caps off if you have them. Turn both the L and H needles in just to where they seat, not tight, then turn them out one full turn. Start the blower and let it warm up to operating temperature. With the motor idling, if necessary turn the L needle in or out to where it is idling smoothly. Turn it in until you notice the idle speed change or it starts running rough. Now turn it out, counting the turns, until you go past smooth idle and get to where it gets rough again. Turn it back in halfway and you're good on the L idle needle. For the H needle, hold the throttle at 3/4 full throttle and do the same thing to adjust the needle to half way between the rough running points.

Ryobi 720r trimmer starts ok but stalls when the

The carburator needs to be adjusted a little, thin our your mixture screw when the trimmer is warmed up and idling. Well how do you get it to idle? I usually have to play with the choke lever with the throttle wide open going from choke to partial choke as needed to keep it running. Adjusting can be tricky, you need a small screwdriver. Screw all the way in then back out 3 to 3.5 turns. this should get you close. Adjust idle as needed.

My new Ryobi boggs down/ stalls as soon as I pull on the trigger.

You should have 2 small adjuster screws next to each other on top of the carb.Try adjusting each of them a little with a thin screwdriver as the engine is running.Put strimmer on the ground first and adjust screws while you are revving engine until it runs correctly.Trial and error and very small adjustments can make quite a difference.Hope this helps.

I'm not sure about the carb. adjustment being removed. The newer carbs. only have one dial for adjustment, not the two screws like the "old school kind".It probably needs the carb. cleaned. Disassemble the carb. and clean with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small portals. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debis. The smallest of particals can cause your problem. Reassemble and try starting. If it still acts up, buy a carb. kit for trimmer and replace the needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen. This should solve the problem.
