Cannot remove display screws from fairphone 4

I am replacing the screen on my phone. The silver screws for the components come out easily using a PH#00 screwdriver. The darker screws will not move at all. Am I using the wrong screwdriver or is there another problem? They’re not stripped. The grooves seem a little smaller than the silver ones.

It appears my screwdriver is actually #0 so that would seem to be the problem.

Yes, people don’t realise this, but having a good quality screwdriver of the correct size is half of the battle.
I recommend you follow the iFixit screen replacement guide closely.

In particular, if this is just a screen replacement you shouldn’t need to remove any silver screws, only 8 black ones.

Watch out for step 11.
