5 point star cell phone screws
Hi, My hubby decidedt to clean the hot tub with his verizon phone in his pocket! We let it lay for a day and it works fine but the screens have water in them. I want to take the phone apart so it can dry out but the case is held together by a 5-point star shaped screw. It is not a torx and it is not a petal, it is a 5 point star, very small. Anyone got any ideas on where to find such a screwdriver? I tried a tiny flat tip but the screws are set too tightly. I am sure these were designed to keep you out of the phone but surely somewhere there is a tiny 5 point star screwdriver.
Without seeing a photo of it, I suspect it is regular Torx, but just really small. You'll need a set of precision screw driver. You can get them at the local hardware store like Home Depot or Lowes. Take the phone down there and they should be able to match you up with a set of screwdrivers that would work.
Come to think of it, Torx is 6-point stars, right? So it's probably not the right type. Which phone is it?
