Server Response: An error has occurred. Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Hello everyone,

I am getting the following error message in my powerapp, on the first screen and in my case it is splash screen.


The requested operation is invalid. Server Response: An error has occurred. Object reference not set to an instance of an object. clientRequestId: 0c185d8f-b037-4820-b0ee-aa55ac450fda


If I close this notification, then the application is working fine.
How can I find out where exactly the issue is? (Not able to figure out as the debugger is not yet available in powerapps)


There are only few actions on that screen

OnStart: Navigate(SplashScreen, None)

Timer Autostart property: true

Timer Duration property: 10 sec

Timer onTimerEnd property: Navigate(LandingPage, None)


Furthermore, Is this error, specific to the screen where it comes from or the whole app?


What's surprising is that sometimes this error message appears and sometimes it doesn't.
