Crap!!!! My Combo isn't working!!!! Help.

I just now noticed that I cannot put in my combo for my universe case, I know that I didn't change it. Is there anyway to reset it or how do I get into my guitar? Oh god. please help.

Cannot put it in like how? The number wheels are stuck? Or it just doesn't open when you do it? One of mine is picky about me kinda pushing the button over, then pushing the lock in before it lets go... I have also done the "go through every number method" with my last Jem... I knew it was 4** so I went from 400 to 473 to find it.

You have to have the lock open to reset a combination.

More than likely it's a weak tongue. When you push the button over it's not moving the tongue far enough now. Try pushing the catch the opposite way hard when you push the button over hard.
