As an addition, when did this issue start? Did anything happen before, like hard landing, crash or firmware upgrading? Like Elektra mentioned, please post a screenshot for better assistance.

You can attach a picture to a message by going to the "Advanced" message editor.  There is a size limitation, but a screenshot of your interface on your device should not exceed this size (1M).

If you are wondering how to get a screenshot, you will need to consult the device manual for your hardware you are using.  My Galaxy S7 Edge has instructions on how to get a screenshot, your device may have similar steps.

I'm not sure what you mean by "free space".  Yes you want to calibrate the compass in an open area, free of any possible magnetic disturbances.  The spark is pretty sensitive (really sensitive), so if it's convenient I'd find a fairly wide open field with no man made structures and no power lines nearby.  I'm not talking "acres and acres", but I am suggestion you "get out of the house".

IMU Calibration is also sensitive, in that you want to perform this calibration on a surface you have already determined is flat and level.

I agreed with Charles Adams. It seems that you put your spark indoor, please try to calibrate your spark outdoor without interference. Thanks.

Can you provide me the screenshot of the compass interface. You can check in the "Main Controller Settings"- "Sensors"-"Compass". I would forward the screenshot for our engineers to check.

Hi, could you please answer the questions which I asked before? I'd like to help. When did this issue happen? Did anything happen before, like hard landing, crash or firmware upgrading?  I would recommend you try to refresh the firmware via DJI Assistant 2, see if it works.

Did you try the advice above? Please calibrate your drone in open place. If you change another environment, did the problem still exist?
