@ichthyornis1210 assuming that you've tried swapping the panels with the cameras to no avail.

@bulahbulawayo yes we have tried 2 different cameras on it.

Are you able to swap the cables to see if it's the cable or the panel? Which model camera are you charging?

@terrie Thanksng pro 2. We have not tried the cables yet. Thats a good idea. We will try that asap.

@ichthyornis1210 maybe a USB battery pack could be used temporarily for checks.
