String going out of tune

It's a sz520 I've had for a couple of weeks. Manufactured in
2003 with original parts and strings. Gibraltar III bridge. It's
the same string that just won't stay in tune - others are fine.
What are the first things to look at to solve this?

Either you're not stretching them, you have a loose tuner, or a bad tuner. My bet is on 1 or 2
