Your input voltage is shown as "12v". Is that correct? Because that is the absolute min requirement for the 7810 regulator you also show.
Your circuit probably doesnt need that 7810 regulator as you can connect the LM358 positive supply terminal right to the +12v.
The 12v could be a problem if it drops any lower than that. Really the min should be 12.5 volts.
This is just one possible reason the circuit stopped working.
