Don’t Mess with Odd Screws

Ever run into a strange-looking screw, and spend hours trying to find just the right tool to get it open? Chances are that screw is for your protection: proceed with caution.

When you go to clean your TV’s mirror and lenses [Hack #69] , you probably will be able to enter your TV from both the front and back. It’s a good idea to try and go in through the front whenever possible, and if you’ve got a Pioneer Elite TV, you must never enter in through the back. There’s a nice optical cavity, easily accessible, but you’ll be digging your own grave (or rather, your TV’s grave). This is a classic case of why not to mess with strange screws (in other words, screws that aren’t standard Philips head or flat head).
