when i turn the knob on one of the tuners on my acoustic, the post doesn't turn, and its sticking out a few centimeters more than any of the others. Anyone know how to fix this or is it broken beyond repair?

people who think that the tuning peg things have to be straight. I went to the bathroom once, I come back, and my friend detunified my guitar, and then asked why it sounded weird. ARGG!!!

off the top of my head,have you tryed pushing it down? (but not forcefully that it breaks)(support the back of the tuning head) you may/should hear a slotting click(dont push till you get a slotted click,you may not get one.i when i fixed a similar problem).then tighted the screw on the tuning head (were it goes into the headstock) tighted the nut on the top of the head stock were the string is and the black screw on the knob thing itself and re string it.its a little different to what i experienced but it sounds like a tention issue.ill call a few of my guitar buddies.me and them fix up guitars and such.ill be back with any other info i can find.
