Olympus EM5 i and Godox TT685o

I just purchased the Godox TT685o for my EM5, and it won´t work.

The "ready indicator" lights up red, and nothing I´ve done so far makes the flash responsive in any way.

I also tried cleaning the contact spots and checked with my other flash (the one that came with the camera).

I checked the manual, and it says that the EM5 ii is compatible (they checked the flash with that specicifc model), but from my understanding of the i and ii versions there is no reason why this flash shouldn´t be working on the i version?

So I´m asking if there are any Olympus EM5 i users why actually uses/tried this flash who can tell me if the one I´ve gotten is a dud, or if the flash itself just isn´t compatible with the camera?

Edit: I just realised, that the flash actually responds when i zoom in and out ( it changes f-values), so the contact between camera ans flash must be OK?
