I am repainting some cabinets, I cannot get the screws off the hinges, they are either stripped or painted in, what do I do?

Do hope you have completed you r project but if not maybe a little help now can make it easyer.....take s small screw driver and hammer, tap on the screws and remove as much paint around hing as you can and clean out screw driver slot
put pressur on the screw with the screw driver to take it out and tap with a hammer as you do, if this does not work you can drill the head off of the screw to femove hinges.
you can get a screw extractor and with your drill in revers
remove the screw part that is left in the door or cabinet.
If you do not plan on re-using the hinges you can tap on the top and bottom and the paint may come loose around the screw and hing....Good Luck....
