Hey,

I recently replaced my strings, and none will tune. I have them more or less around the correct pitch by ear, but none of my tuners will pick them up to do it properly. Any ideas why?

What type of guitar, what type of strings (old and new), what tuner(s) etc etc?

Sounds more like the tuner is bad or the connection from the guitar to tuner is bad.

Maybe you can try a phone app (Gstrings works pretty good) or any online tuner and tune by ear.

It's not the strings. Got your volume turned all the way up?

If you've got an iPhone, pick up Guitar Toolkit by Agile Partners ($2.99).
Outstanding tuner, metronome, chord library, chord finder, scales, arpeggios.

Bad battery in the tuner is my first guess. 2nd guess is bad connection between guitar and tuner. Any time my tuner can't pick up the strings, it's a weak battery 90% of the time.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...
