Help with GY-53 sensor freezing arduino

I am trying to use a time of flight sensor to measure distance, but the arduino freezes when the SDA wire is connected.

Here are the connections to the sensor:
GND > GND
5V > VCC
A4 > SDA
A5 > SCL

I have a video below showing the problem. At the beginning of the video, the connection between A4 and SDA is severed, and the program outputs invalid data, but when I plug it in, the program freezes.

Link to Video: [Link]

I am using this library, although I have also tried the Adafruit library as well.
Here is the code running, this is from the “Continuous” example:

/* This example shows how to use continuous mode to take
range measurements with the VL53L0X. It is based on
vl53l0x_ContinuousRanging_Example.c from the VL53L0X API.

The range readings are in units of mm. */

#include <Wire.h>
#include <VL53L0X.h>

VL53L0X sensor;

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Wire.begin();

  sensor.init();
  sensor.setTimeout(500);

  // Start continuous back-to-back mode (take readings as
  // fast as possible).  To use continuous timed mode
  // instead, provide a desired inter-measurement period in
  // ms (e.g. sensor.startContinuous(100)).
  sensor.startContinuous();
}

void loop()
{
  Serial.print(sensor.readRangeContinuousMillimeters());
  if (sensor.timeoutOccurred()) { Serial.print(" TIMEOUT"); }

  Serial.println();
}

and here is the code inside of the VL53L0X.h file for convienience:

The sensor you're using is a 3V3 sensor. You must not connect it directly to 5V, neither for Vcc nor for the I2C signals (SDA, SCL). You might have already fried it.

Sorry, I forgot to post a link to the sensor: [Link]
In the documentation it says it accepts 3-5v, maybe I got sent the wrong product?

The link says the module accepts 3-5V power.

The module does not have level shifters for 5V I/O, so if you have accidentally exposed the inputs to 5V, it may have been destroyed as mentioned above.

Note: I2C I/O requires pullup resistors. If these are connected to 3.3V, then it can be OK to use the module with a 5V Arduino that does NOT have pullup resistors.

But it is always best to use that sensor (and any other 3.3V device) with a 3.3V Arduino.

Hello KonoDioDa, did you solve the problem?

I think that the problem is the use of the PS pin, when it is not wired, by default the module provides the measures by Serial (TX, RX and even PWM pines) but when the PS pin is attached to Ground, the module could be manipulated by I2C, I think that the library you are using is expected to work by I2C.

Can someone confirm?

Thanks
