Floyd Rose problem

Hi. My tuning goes sharp (up to ~10 cents) when I pull up on my trem, and it goes back down if i dive it. But it doesn't go down if I dive first. Also high E and B strings perfectly in tune. Lock-in nuts are screwed strongly.
Second thing, when i loosen 1 string with microtuners the rest of the strings goes sharp. And vice-versa. But as I said, lock-in nuts are screwed. Any suggestions?

Shallow and pedantic.

You need to set it up properly, the tensions on the strings and springs aren't balanced. See the FR set up guide stickied at the top of the forum.

Well I read it, and the bridge is parallel to the body.

That doesn't mean that the tension is balanced.

I'd say block the trem and forget about it (like I did), but you seem determined. There are good Youtube videos as well.

Oh actually it was sinking a bit. I blocked the trem with cards and tried to tune to standard tuning at various spring tensions but I broke a string again xD
