My Floyd Rose broke NEED HELP!
I have a Dean Razor Back and one day it fell and now the Floyd Rose is too deep in the guitar so all the strings are touching the fret board and I can't figure out how to fix it. If you have advice can you like put it in a step-by-step format. Also I video on how to fix it would be awsome.

Loosen and remove the strings, remove the springs in the back, and realign the Floyd. Then put the springs back and buy new strings.

Remove the strings slowly by loosening them removing them one by one
Remove one or all springs in the back
Put something under the Floyd baseplate (where the cavity is) like an empty pack of strings, to keep the spring tension and the baseplate roughly flush with the cavity
Replace springs. The pack of strings should be wedged under the FR
Replace strings one by one and retune

It should bring everything back in balance to how it was set up before. If the bridge is too deep in the cavity still, loosen the screws in the trem claw holding the springs. If the bridge is too proud, tighten the screws.

Seriously though, Google is your friend. There are tons of videos and sites with walkthroughs on how to do this.

Um, can you possibly post pictures?

Your guitar suffered some trauma (a fall) and now it's radically different. There may actually be damage to the bridge. This is a lot like saying you got punched in the face and now your eyeball is crooked.

Did you try taking off all the strings? I'm not really a trem expert by any means, but I think it's one of them "knife edge" deals. Maybe it's not on the edge anymore?
