To bad, I am not sure if easy-extracts are available for these tinny devices. but you might have to look to some un-proven methods like hold the BB little lifted from the housing so it can bring the screw into its threads or even gets on the threads.
Good luck

You can file the screw head across, forming a cut down the middle and then use a regular screw driver to get it out.

You can also drill out the stripped screw but you need a very small and delicate drill, like a Dremel Mototool.

Try the Dremel. If you have not stripped it out too terribly bad try the next size up Torx Bit.
For example, if you have a T-6, try a T-7 or T-8. This has worked for me in the past with repairs at work.

Maybe send it to an electronics repair place. They may have the special tools and skills required to accomplish this task. Good luck.
