Has anyone had this problem before? I just got a new guitar and I'm tuning it using the guitar tuna app. Everything goes fine until I get to the D string. For some reason the app thinks I'm playing another A string which I'm not.... I then tried to use another app and it does the same thing. I hope my guitars not broken.
If it helps I wasn't tuning it while it was plugged into an amp. Maybe that's the problem? Please help.

Are you sure you don't actually have it tuned to A?

That may be the problem. How do I get it to D? I'm trying to get it to standard tuning... I'm a noobie so ya :/

Have you tried muting the A string with a finger? They often don't need much vibration for a tuner to be confused.

If you don't get a good ringing on the 9th harmonic it want sound right.

Maybe don't use an app? Or just do what everyone else here says.
