Last night i found my old Gen1 tama under my Tv Stand in a box. One problem tho....the screws were stripped!!! OMFG! SUPER FREAK OUT. But i thought of an idea. So i went downstairs and got the power drill and a small drill bit. I actually drilled through the little screws and lifted the cover off the back. Then i cut the litte ends of the screws that were sticking up off and wala! My tama worked. Now i just tape the back closed with scotch tape!@ What a relief! :(

Yeah, I had to do the same thing to my Devils.
Just drill the screws out and tape it back up.
Some times, that's all you can do. :(
