    Default I need help! Broken ukulele.

    (sorry if this isn't the right place to post this) So I just got my ukulele, and when I was trying to tune it, one of the knobs wouldn't stay in place. I would turn it, and it would go back. Does anyone know what happened and how to fix it?

    Not sure what kind of tuning machines you have, but assuming it is in fact not broken, many need that little screw in the middle of the tuner tightened!

    Sorry, I'm not quite sure what you mean. I'll try to explain it a little better. One of the knobs on my ukulele used for tuning would turn back the other way when i would tune my ukulele.

    Is it a friction tuners? There should be a screw I in the center of the knob, tighten the screw. Hope that helps.
