    This is a vague problem, is it the same one that is failing? how are they fed? Normally when two devices are in parallel, one may "hog" most of the current, could this be so?

    You might consider changing your load cell brand. I think this is the fastest way to diagnose the situation. If this instance happens again, then it's not the load cell. It may be that the connection was not stable and unfit for use.
