Spark wont take off?

So I'm not sure if it's because I did some maintenance and somehow broke something or forgot something (well... the pin head for the front sensor got stuffed, but that shouldn't be a problem for general flight?) Or there was an update that I just did with it.
But it won't take off, auto take off doesn't work from the app giving the response 'take off failed and the controller doesn't make it take off either! There are 2 errors which are "magnetic interference please calibrate compass" and an error for the front sensor (which I also disabled in settings)
-it also doesn't give me the option to calibrate where it should it just says '
-please restart the drone
-calibrate the compass' under where the button should be
Any help is appreciated, there isn't a flightlog... well... because there hasn't been any flight :(

Make sure your props are fully extended, I’ve had that issue with eBay props.

Spark will not turn on its motors if it encounters strong magnetic interference. Move the spark to a different location or hand launch it.

You may have to send in to dji.
At least they are FAST and I have found (with a drone out of warranty) that they are reasonable and will offer you dji care upon return (if you don't already have).
