Sensor doesn't change value (MPU9250)

Hello,
I am reading acceleration data from a MPU9250 and I have the problem, that when I move the sensor, my y-value always stays constant (x-value and z-value change correctly).
Does someone know what the problem could be?

Gravity should stay the same, so perhaps you have mislabeled the y and the z.

The problem is most like in the code that you forgot to post. Please follow the instructions here: How to get the best out of this forum

Thank you for your reply! I am quite sure that the z-value is correct, because it is -1.
I forgot to mention that I have tried connecting to a raspberry with following python script:

@charnky, your topic has been moved to a more suitable location on the forum. Installation and Troubleshooting is not for problems with (nor for advise on) your project :wink: See About the Installation & Troubleshooting category.

So you tried on a Raspberry Pi; did that give the correct results? Where is the Arduino code?

Hello, yes I have received correct data on the raspberry and I don't have any Arduino code, because my sensor is on an Arduino board but I can directly connect it with a raspberry
for example, when I don't move the sensor I get following data:
x = 0.03g y = 2g z = -0,91

when I move it, I get:
x = 1,23g y = 2g z = 2.3

so my problem is, that the y-value doesn't change when I move the sensor

Please explain with a wiring diagram; all connections including power and USB. A reasonably sized (300kB or so) photo of a hand-drawn one is fine.

Which Arduino board?
