Broken screw inside TV while attempting to mount on wall

As the title says, the screw that was supposed to attached the bracket to the TV broke and I am struggling to get it out. I tried to use a screw extractor, but to no avail since the screw is rather small. I am afraid to damage the TV and I have even tried to drill a little bit around the screw so I would have some leeway to use pliers, but it is not working. Can anyone suggest anything? Thank you.

Slot it with a carbide disc on a Dremel tool and try turning it out with a flat tip screwdriver.
