Try using something like the Alden Grabit or Easy Out. You can get them at most hardware stores.

if you could get a dremel or other cutting tool small enough you could cut a ridge across it and get a flathead scredriver in there

Try using the next size up driver.

If you have access to a Dremel, you could cut a slot across the top of the screw and use a flathead screwdriver to remove it.

Lats case scenario, you can carefully drill out the screw head, then remove the rest of the panel and grab whats left with a pliers.

Have you tried getting a small sharp flat chisel and carefully hit the outside rim counterclockwise?

do you think it would be small enough to get in the screw?
