The high E on my electric guitar (which is a squier affinity strat) has a 12 fret note which is flatter than the open note, and I've turned the screw on the saddle left so it goes foward and tuned the string open, but it's still flat on the 12th fret. I've looked at tutorial videos on youtube and they don't work on my guitar. Can anyone tell me why? Thanks

Turn the knob as much as is required and make sure you're turning in the right direction. If you can't get it right, try streching the string some and start again.

Are the strings new?

Move the saddle forward until the 12th fret note is exactly the same note (only an octave higher) as the open note.

The strings are atleast 2 years old, it's my friends guitar, she hasn't changed them since she got the guitar

will it matter if the screw goes back inside the saddle from loosening too much?

Try changing the strings...when you get them stretch them put them on the guitar and stretch them out .then try intonation.

No, as long as there's enough thread to hold the saddle, it's ok.
