Problems with analogRead

My IND.I/O D21G is unable to read analog values.
When I try to analogRead it freece.

void setup() {
...
  // PCD8544-compatible displays may have a different resolution...
  lcd.begin();  

...

  Indio.setADCResolution(12);
  Indio.analogReadMode(1, V5_p);
}

void loop() {
...
float fltPressure1=1;
fltPressure1=Indio.analogRead(1);   //Read Analog-In CH1

 lcd.setCursor(0,2);
 lcd.print("Pressure: ");  
 lcd.print(fltPressure1);
 lcd.print("    ");

}

If I comment out fltPressure1=Indio.... the LCD shows: Pressure: 1

What can possibly be wrong here?

Hi Torgeir, to add to Loic's suggestion, please do not use the V5 mode but the V10 standard instead, it should give you enough resolution in the 0-5V range.

Hi Torgeir,

Can you please confirm that you have external power (12V or 24V) connected?

Best Regards,

Loic

Yes and no, I had 24v connected, but the display showed only random pixels. The 24v was thus disconnected, but is now reconnected and now it works. Thanks.
