Smile Tiny phillips head screw stipped out to doorbell

I was trying to fix my exterior doorbell and while taking out the screws they got stripped out. They are very tiny screws and I was wondering if anyone would have a quick fix on taking out the screws.

Too small to ez-out so you will probably have to drill the heads off.

You could try easing a small knife blade under the head and forcing the screw up as you turn it with the phillips driver.

Otherwise do as tow guy suggests. I have a dremel and would probably grind the heads off.
