It sounds like you may have stripped a gear/gears, open up the servo and have a look.

If the gears are wrecked, you may be able to get just the gears replaced. Like [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXEYN0&P=7]this.[/link]

I opened it up and teeth fell out, sure enough it was the gears. I got some new servo from my local hobby shop, all they had was $50 + servos and then a couple for $14 so i got the cheapest for being on a bit of a budget but it doesnt really fit to well so im trying to modify it a bit for it to work right. But anyways thank you very much.
