cannot convert the value "[Binary]" to type Binary - Power BI Service Refresh Error

I have a report that refreshes perfectly on Desktop. It uses Sharepoint List, Sharepoint folder where is looks for newest csv file and Power BI dataset. I published it on Power BI Service and scheduled a refresh which returns constantly this error: 

 

Last refresh failed: Mon Apr 25 2022 12:53:52 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)
There was an error when processing the data in the dataset.

I have checked that the Data Sources are set on Organizational and nothing seems to help.

Hi. This error could be an issue with your M script within your Power BI Desktop file. There might a data type conversion of binary before combining or opening the last file that is preventing the engine to read the record as binary. Please check it in your Power Bi Desktop. Try refreshing and checking the code.

I hope that helps,
