BlueSolar 100/50 mppt controller shows "State" as "Off"

I connected the BlueSolar 100/50 mppt solar controller to my solar panel and battery. The bluetooth app shows the battery "state" to "off" and the "virtual load output" to "off". There is an information icon above it that says "why is this charger off?". I click on that and nothing happens.

Best I can tell is the solar charger never turns on as it always shows 0 watts from the solar power. when I test the solar panel though it shows 32 volts coming out of the wires just fine from my multi-meter.

Please, connect to the MPPT, save settings to a file and share it here. I will take a look and see what the problem can be.


Clicking the "Why is the charger off?" should open a pop-up with a hint of what the problem can be. Could you please try a different phone and check if the pop-up is shown?
