Help Removing Stripped BackPlate Screws?

So I had a new Backplate for christmas and was happy to finally replace old plate because of all the scratches, but when I was removing the screws I accidentally stripped 3... Do you guys have any ideas on how to remove those 3 stripped screws?

You might be able to use tiny screw extractors like these that iFixit sells:

Precision Screw Extractor Set

Given that the casing is plastic, I wouldn't recommend trying to drill the screw out like you might do with a broken bolt in metal. I also don't think they make a set of easy outs small enough to get those Switch back plate screws out.

Haven’t done this yet, but my father, whose job was fixing motherboards and other electronical parts, said that the only way is to drill where the screw is, with a drill head as big as the screw itself :/

I had to do this on my own Switch recently. It's nerve-wracking but as long as you're careful it gets the job done.

One thing that’s worked really well for me in the past is to put a flat rubber band between the screw and the screwdriver and PUSH — the pressure and added tackiness of the rubberband will allow for the screwdriver to have a better “grip” and get those out.

Also, you’re not alone. Those OEM Switch screws are EASY to strip.
