Question Help please - string retainer bar


I have a RGT42FMDR.

When I tune my guitar with the tuners on the headstock and then go to lock up all the nut bolts the lowest 2 strings (E and A) and highest 2 strings (B and E) all go sharper (sometimes up to half a step). I have set the string retainer bar as low as it could possibly go so i am really confused with what is happening. To my eyes everything looks fine and when i lock the strings down they shouldn't be going sharper. My bridge is also blocked so the bridge isn't causing the strings to go sharper. Does anyone know what else could possibly be going wrong?

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
