ummm.....yeah no problem.
do u realise ur guitar has little metal threader things (dont know what they are called)
on it that the strings get threaded through, thus creating an angled line??
Can u not see that??
or maybe we are all missing something.
i dont know

Yea, i know, I'm not talking about the strings though, sorry if the pointers made it confusing. It's the machinehead that makes me worry.

Tighten the screw that fastens the bottom part of the tuner to the top, it'll be on the back of the headstock. Make sure you loosen your strings to slack first though, or just remove them entirely.
Get baked, study theory.

I've only had the machineheads slightly come out on my first piece of sh*t electric. Any guitar that is better than complete crap has machineheads that stay put.

That's strange, mine is an original fender telecaster.

He's probably referring to the string trees on the actual headstock, they're perfectly normal, they just help to keep your high string in line and at a decent action as well.

Seriously? Perhaps you should contact Fender, something like this shouldn't happen to a good guitar.

The actual tuner peg looks like its shifted up and forward, but that could be from the tension moving it forward due to the nut being loose and thus not keeping it in place. Try tightening the nut on the tuner without tension on it. If it won't get any tighter or move, I would say you've got a problem with the tuner, but I would think if the peg was shifting up and out, the tuner would backlashing a lot.

Alright, I'll check it out.

I don't know if it is actually very bad for your guitar since I'm not an expert on machineheads-that-come-out, but I guess they could eventually move out even further since this shows they aren't attached properly. And even if it turns out not to pose a real threat to your guitar, it still shouldn't have happend on a real fender.

When you say Original, do you mean Vintage? If so Fender is going to say something along the lines oh "Blah blah we can't fix it due to expired warranty and they weren't meant to last that long blah blah but heres what we think is going on"

Sorry, I guess I'm more mad with Fender.

I hate repeating myself, but there is a string tree/retainer at the end of the Fender logo, it helps to keep the action a bit lower and keeps the higher 2 strings in line with the peg.

It's perfectly normal, lots of guitar have the retainers.

On the first picture, the strings he is referring to are actually behind the machine head in question.

Ah, alright. Try tightening the tuner nut like I said. If you take the string off, and it has a lot a play on the peg, you need to tighten the nut for sure. That said, even with that nut night, there will still be some play in it, but that should be minimal.
#28
before trying to tighten the tuner, u'll want to release the tension on that string.

some tuning pegs have a nut on the front, but some dont, instead are just connected buy a couple of small screws on the back.
like said these need to be checked.

yes, that's a problem. u'll have less stable tuning on that string and eventually worn parts.

My english is a bit off, can you explain what you mean with the tuner nut?
#32
oh i just foresaw something,if you dont do something about it,
the machinehead could slowly protrude more and more till it comes out suddenly by the string tension and "plionk!" on your forehead,many fine guitarists died that way!
lol j/k that could never happen,not to your forehead anyway!

He doesn't mean anything, because your tuners are held by press-fit ferrules, not a nut. At least, trht's what I'm guessing. Modern tuners have threads at the front that allows it to be held tightly in the tuner holes with a hex-nut, but your problem seems to be that the press-fit ferrule itself is coming out. It can be fixed, but if you can't work out the solution yourself, I'll assume you're not experienced enough to do it.
