I've had the same problem of MPU locking-up for a while on my MPU connected to an Arduino Nano,

and for me, the solution was to put 10k pull-up resisters on SDA and SCL lines off the module.  

Here's a link to the picture of the wiring; http://www.instructables.com/file/FGI0R61IJD799SO/  

and the project is detailed at; http://www.instructables.com/id/Gyro-Stabilizer-W-Arduino-and-Servo/

Resurrecting an old thread, but I'm seeing very similar behavior.  The MPU connects and starts sending data, but if I move it more than about 45 degrees from where it initializes it suddenly sends nothing but zeros.  It's completely motion based- it will sit happily and output, but as soon as it moves more than a bit it's all zero.  Resetting the Arduino works fine, until it moves again.  I've tried woojay's suggestion of the pull up resistors, but that hasn't helped.

Bad sensor?
