    i'm installing a fliptop and can get my ps2 cover screws off easily but when i try to get the ines covering the dvd tray off there to tight. i have a v10 console. has anybody else had this problem or would anyone know how to loosen them? I don't want to turn to hard in case i strip them. Thanks for any help.

    I used a knife but that was for a Version 7 ps2, if your using a knife be careful not to cut a finger off.

    did you go underneath with a knife or unscrew it with a knife?

    i'm in canada and didn't have that problem, BUT after the fliplid install, the system won't SPIN anything.

    be sure to post after the fliplid's installed and let us know if its working.

    use very small precision screwdrivers. like the ones to fix eyeglasses with. i used a pair of plyers and put the little screwdriver in it as a guide. they came off easily...

    i got it! i took a little screwdriver for glasses and tightened it into the end of a big screwdive with all the pieces. They came off really easily then because i could get on a lot more force. everything is working now as well. Thanks for all the help!
