put a matchstick or a toothpick in with a little bit of wood glue and let it dry.
then screw it in again. mine never comes loose anymore.

sorry for posting again but make sure that whatever your putting in the hole fills it in, meaning if one tooth pick feels loose in there put two in and make sure its filled in good so the screw will have a good hold on the wood.
