Did you try reboot out of the engineering mode?
I heard this resolved this issue previously?
Please reply if this is not the case. Also if not the case please provide more detail and provide screenshot or picture if possible. Thanks

I don’t know how to do that? GPD said to press fn alt shift f3. But I don’t know when to do this. Their English is awful.

Great glad this got sorted. I’ll mark it as resolved. Thanks for your help.
