One side of a plastic screw hole completely broke so the screw cannot screw on, is a way I can repair it? I cannot add another hole because it’s on a electronic keyboard

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it has nothing to do with home improvement.

  • A slightly larger screw will often do the trick.

If you can get to the screw hole, mix some quick setting epoxy and form it into a side. You'll have to keep forming it until it hardens. Maybe wrap some tape around the side that's not broken and make a "form" to put the epoxy in. Once it's cured, drill a hole for the screw

    I would drill and tap the hole. Epoxy can be tough and brittle. Jan 15, 2020 at 1:19
  • @Harper-ReinstateMonica Good point. Even the self threading screws for plastic would probably crack the epoxy.
