   Hello, I posted awhile back about using the HX711 DFRobot weighing module. It worked great back then and I had no issues with it. I am using it again after 8 months and it is no longer working and I am unsure why. When I hook everything up the serial monitor shows values that just keep increasing (attached pic) and does not respond when I press down on the ends of the load cell. Below is a picture of my wiring and all my parts. I've tried changing the weighing module, changing the load cell, changing the arduino and none of those worked.

     I am using aguegu's code and library (https://github.com/aguegu/ardulibs/tree/3cdb78f3727d9682f7fd22156604fc1e4edd75d1/hx711 also found on this wiki http://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/index.php/Weight_Sensor_Module_V1) and have used it in the past as well as bogde (https://github.com/bogde/HX711) with no problems. It might be a simple problem I'm not sure, if anyone has experience with this problem or experience with the DFRobot weighing module I would love the help!

     Here is where I bought the weighing module that came with a 1kg load cell (http://www.dfrobot.com/index.php?route=product/product&keyword=weigh&product_id=1031)
