Might sound dumb, but have you replaced the battery? In addition to this, if it is an Acoustic/Electric, have you only tried using the tuner when the instrument is not plugged in?

Remember that the pickups on most electo acoustics only come 'ON' when you've got it plugged into the amp (it's power source) and your tuner can't 'hear' your strings without the pickup being 'ON'. Not always true, but in the majority of ElectroAcoustic guitars, it's the norm. Also remember that leaving the guitar plugged in when the amp is off will drain your batteries (the 3rd internal pin of the guitars jack socket acts as a switch, turning on any electronics on when the jacks in, and off when it's removed).
