    Well, it could have to do with how much difference there is between the colors, but if you think it seems broken, go to the far left end of the options bar, click the tiny triangle and choose Reset Tool and see if that helps.

    You could try resetting the magic wand tool.

    If that doesn't work, also set your sample size for the eyedropper tool to Point Sample.

    If still no joy, could you post an example image?
