Charging Fault with solar panels

I installed the solar panels yesterday. Right after the solar panels were installed, they worked fine; but this morning I got the same error message for all my cameras. The messsage said" A charginf fault has been detected". Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Can you provide a screenshot? Did the error appear on all cameras at the same time?

Have you tried removing the charging connector and reconnecting as instructed in the error message? Do you see the same behavior?

Try removing for a short time, check to see if the error message has cleared and then try again.

Where were you able to purchase the solar panels for the Ultra? I haven’t had luck finding any accessories beyond the mounts.

Where did you find mounts?

Any of the various outdoor mounts with a 1/4"-20 thread will work.
