Can accelerometer sensor be defective?

Hi all,

 

I'm using accelerometer sensor FXLN8361QR1 for my college project. Accelerometer along with signal conditioning block has been mounted on a pcb.

At first accelerometer offset voltage readings at Xout, Yout, and Zout (0.75V,0.75V,0.99V respectively) were consistent with the datasheet, after a couple of days again I tested the pcb, but this time offset voltages at  Xout, Yout, and Zout were 1.25V,1.25V,1.57V respectively. The signal conditioning block and other blocks have been checked and verified.  I'm not able to figure out this anomaly in voltage readings.

 

Anybody could suggest me the reason, it would be of great help.

 

thanks,

Deepak Gowda
