right, yeah, so i took out the resistor and no change.

i tried running everything with no ground going to the accelerometer and there was no change, the data reads 1003 across the board.

im wondering if i've fried my accelerometer. I've fried other sensors before (force sensor) but i got zeros across the board. it seems strange that its sitting at 1003 and not 1023 . any thoughts?

I think that without a ground connection, all bets are off.

it sits at 1003 whether there is or isn't a ground connection to the accelerometer. its as if the accelerometer isn't even there.

No,if it weren't there, the pin would float.
However, without any hands-on, I'd say it is toast.

OK so i've unsoldered everything and reconnected to the breadboard...and everything works great hovering around 550 and i'm getting readings when i move it around.

So the problem must have been with my solder job.

thanks for your help AWOL
