They're crappy tuners. I'd change all of them if I were you.

If you want a quick fix for now, there may be a nut around the tuner post on the front of the headstock. If there is, tighten that nut. If not, I have nothing else to add.

U could try adding a bit of lock-tite into the threads of the nut to see if it holds better?

To me it sounds like a worn area that the screw is going into. You mean that the tuner is physically moving away from the head from the back, as in the screw that holds the peg onto the back of the headstock is coming loose?

If so, simple solution is to put a dab of wood glue in the worn hole and a couple toothpicks. Let it dry up, snip the toothpicks down to the headstock and screw the tuning peg back in.
