Tuning probs

hey there ppl
umm i would like to ask whether i should actually send
my guitar to the shop or do this myself.
I have an Ibanez RG 770 (bout 12 years old or more)
that comes with an edge tremolo system.
for the past 6 months,i have tuned my guitar to Eb tuning
i customized the truss rod myself,the trem,and the springs positions.
Then,when i tried to tune my guitar to standard tuning,
after i tune the last 5 strings,and tuning the 1st string(all are tuned to standard with a tuner)it seems the moment after i tune the guitar,
the tuning goes flat again!
i tried to customized the truss rod,tighten and loosen the springs,
but still no luck.Anyone here knows how to fix this prob?

This is probably covered in the TECH section. You'll first have to tighten the spring claw screws a little to go back to regular tuning. To keep the trem at the proper angle. Then retuning will take more than one pass! Just keep on tuning and retuning all 6 strings, you'll get there.
