Alright, I located the pictures of my Umino with its stripped screw: http://i.imgur.com/PQEsf.jpg

 

Is it like this? Worse? Better?

Ehhh it was kind of hard for me to tell, because of how small they were on mine, before the JIS screwdrivers came I thought they looked fine since I could still see the cross shape, but I guess not.

When I took them to the Watch guy they sort of looked like they were just circles in the screws (more or less.) the one in your picture sort of looks like it is a bunch of circles going down.

I don't know if it really matters since either way I don't know if a screwdriver could get them out.

You'd need a special bit that can drill into the screw, then carefully use it to unscrew it. But I am not sure if they make them that small.

Ok I just got back from the Watch repair shop/Jewelers and he replaced the stripped screws with new ones, and put some new batteries in for me.

 

After I get back from my physical therapy appointment later I will start a new Mothra, and make a topic in the logs to log its progress.

You are extremely lucky, I took a pet around that had broken screws only to be told there was nothing they could do and had to send it back for a replacement.

 

Good to hear it worked out, though.

That's fantastic news! Did you send it to a family-owned business? I heard that small businesses are much better and more patient than the kiosks at the mall, repair places at big department stores, etc.

It seemed like a small business, I don't know if it was family owned, but it was called "bedrock jewelers"
