AD8422 Test Result Check

I'm trying to find out the reason of difference result with voltage divider at the VIN+/VIN- inputs and without it.

Can you please help me to find out the reason ?


Test 1. : Diamond Plot

                  Input : Vin+ = +3V DC, Vin- = GND

                  Output = 3V


Test 2. : EVB(EVAL-INAMP-82RMZ with AD8422) Test without voltage divider, RG = Open

                  Input : Vin+ = +3V DC(From Power Supply), Vin- = GND

                  Output = 3V


Test 3. Real Circuit Test with voltage Divider(R1=1M, R2=330K, R4=330K, RG = Open)

             Input(Vin =+12V, Pin4 of AD8422 =12V*330K/1330K) = 2.977V

             Output = 0.2V  ==> Expected to get 2.977V, but 0.2V


Question : Test 1 and 2 shows expected same results, but Test 3 is different.

                 Does voltage divider affect the different result ? Why the output is not 2.977V at Test 3 ?
