Solution: Charge the battery manually for a few minutes.
- In order to supply sufficient power to the battery management system, you have to manually charge the battery for a few minutes. Check out the below video demonstrating how you can do that.
Problem 3: DJI Inspire horizon not level.
As I found, many users face DJI Inspire horizon level issues and were able to fix the issue by calibrating the compass. But the thing is users who have faced this issue said “The only way of fixing this issue is just calibrating the compass every time you turn on the drone.”. So you might have to calibrate the compass every time you turn on the drone to fix the issue.
Solution: Calibrate the DJI Inspire compass.

- Power on the DJI Inspire aircraft and remote controller.
- Open the DJI GO 4 and connect to the aircraft.
- Tap on the “Aircraft Status”.
- Then tap the “Calibrate” button in front of the compass text.
- Once you have done that, the compass calibration process will start. Put the remote controller away where you can see the app screen.
- Take the aircraft into your hands and hold it horizontally and about 4 feet away from you. aircraft’s indicators should be light yellow right now. Then spin around 360 degrees until those indicators turn to solid green.
- After that, hold the drone vertically and spin it again around 360 degrees until the indicators turn solid green.
- Then place the DJI drone down and you are ready to go.
Problem 4: DJI Inspire no image transmission signal.
Even though there is no real explanation for the DJI Inspire no image transmission signal error, many users suspect that is caused by faulty settings stored on the SD card.
Solution: Format the SD card.
- Power on the DJI Inspire aircraft and controller.
- Launch the DJI GO app. Then enter the camera view.
- Then enter settings and format the SD card.
- Then restart the Inspire aircraft.
