Well, my Dad brought me to the supermarket to buy more pens and this really neat 'Jet Nozzle' lighter, and I got the BIC Pen Metho to work
Okay, here's what you do:
1. Take a bottle of Pam, and spray into the hole where your screw resides. Pour out the excess Pam. This is to keep the plastic from bonding to places it shouldn't.
2. Remove the pen cap and the ink from your BIC Cristal Ball Point Pen (Note: It MUST be that style of pen, else it won't work; found that out the hard way
3. Turn on your lighter, and put the flame just under where the tip of the pen is, until it begins to melt, then quickly jam it into the socket with the screw you wish to remove.
4. Align the pen directly over the screw and press firmly into place, making sure it stays straight. Hold it there for about 30 seconds, then let go. Wait about 15 minutes, then come back to your pen. After 15 minutes, attempt to unscrew the pen. If before you begin to unscrew the screw with the pen, you notice that the pen moves at all, you have done it wrong and need to repeat the melting process.
5. Use some pliers to get the pen to start unscrewing. Then, slowly unscrew until the screw comes out.
6. Clean up your area, and repeat for the next screw. Remember, each pen is molded to fit only one screw, and since these pens are only barely strong enough to hold the stress of unscrewing a screw, you must remelt the pen after each attempt at unscrewing a screw, either successful or unsuccessful.
After I did all this, I went to adjust my laser pot; it was at 500 OHMS!! So, I set it lower and lower, and no matter what value I put it at, the errors wouldn't go away
So I have now ordered a new Gamecube laser off of EBay. And I also got my bit set today (kinda late; I had already done my BIC pen method of making screwdrivers successfully two days ago
At least these will be a little bit more permanent though.)
