The error means you are attempting to put a second record in with the
value of 127.

I have one idea.  The column is probably a signed tinyint.  tinyints have
a range of -128 to 127.  When you try to put in anything over 127, the
value is out of range, and so apparently tries to reinsert it as 127.

You could change the column to an unsigned tinyint, which would give you
a range of 0 to 255.  Or an unsigned smallint, which gives you a range
of 0 to 65,535.  Just make sure the column is unsigned, since I doubt
you will be storing negative numbers in the column.  This can be done
easily from the mysql client:

alter table your_table modify your_column smallint unsigned;
