Solar panel suddenly stopped charging

My solar panel sudden stopped charging my camera batteries. This happen to my back yard cam about 7 months ago. Thinking it may of been defective, I bought a new one.

Now my front yard camera solar panel suddenly quit working.

Anyone have familiar issues or know why this may be happening? Solar panels are pretty straight forward so I cant see this being an issue other than the fact Ring is low quality. Products of a competing company hasnt had a single issue…

Id like to not have to replace all my cams if avoidable.

Sorry to hear about this @Chin! The best first step is to check for any common battery draining factors such as too many motion events, poor wifi signal, cold weather, or frequent lengthy live views. Our Community post about battery drain has more information on optimizing battery life.

Keep in mind the above factors can drain battery quicker than the Solar Panel can charge, effectively evening out or draining battery. Please ensure the Solar Panel has hours of direct sunlight per day, and is securely plugged in to the Cam. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

Thanks for reply. But no nothing I have tried has worked. Both cameras were working just fine for 8+ months. Now my backyard cam is also dead. I know I’m not the only one to have this issue. Both solar panels are in direct sunlight for 90% of daylight.
