    Pressing the rest button only makes the logger code restart, the same as if you turned the power switch off and then back on, so it shouldn’t cause the sensor to stop working. Did the sensor stop reporting normal values exactly when you restarted the board? Did you accidently bump the sensor connector inside your enclosure and cause a bad connection to become loose? I’m assuming you’re using the Grove stereo jack adapter board, or maybe a screw terminal board if you bought a sensor with bare wires. Does your station have a cellular board to send live data to a website, or is it recording on the memory card only?
