    Hi

    The version is way too old (2020-12-14) : current last available version is 5710_7.10.R6710P03 (2023-08-01)

    I shall propose :

    1. upgrade to R6710P03
    2. reset to factory default
    3. display device flash
    4. dir/all (check for free space)

    Then check again and let us know.
