I seem to be getting constant deadband readings of 5ms at 60 Hz for all the analog input channels. I have attached VI used and a picture showing the deadband. The input is a function generator connected directly to the NI 6212. This seems to be only an issue for NI 6212 as using the same setup with NI 6009, a perfect sine wave was shown. So far I tested 2 NI 6212s and 1 NI 6009, but all the 6212s has deadbands. What is going on?

It appears that the issue was with noise created or not filtered out by the power supply to the laptop I was using. It was strange seeing the signals be completely normal for USB-6009 but not for USB-6212. Just disconnecting the charger was enough to solve it.
