Guitar won't tune?

Okay, I thought it was just my other broken guitar, but I just tried tuning my new acoustic guitar and ending up snapping the strings because the electric tuner stopped picking the sounds up after barely turning the pegs.

I thought it was just the tuner's batteries so I replaced those, but still can't tune my guitar. I would just tune by ear, but I can only tune to standard that way, when most of the songs I play now are in alternate tunings.

Any ideas on this? Going to go replace the strings right now though, seems like a waste of $15 on strings since I literally just replaced them a few weeks ago.

Are you tuning with open strings? Try with harmonics instead... your tuner should pick that up.
