Post by Rakanel » Wed Jun 19, 2019 7:26 pm

I have a stripped my faceplate screws. I have never worked with 3d printed parts before, so I thought the resistance was normal. Can anyone please help?

Try taking a wide rubber band and put it in between the screw head and screwdriver. If that doesn't work, they do make kits that can remove stripped screws.

Thanks! I got them out by filing in a new groove and using a flathead!

On a side note. Am I able to run the minty pi without a better but plugged into the USB-C? It wont boot when I do, but it will boot from the USB port on the pi. The battery wont be here for a week or two
