Smartsolar charge controller not connecting to bluetooth

Mppt 100 15 charge controller will no longer connect to any devices. I was using this perfectly fine up until a couple of months ago when all of a sudden it stopped reading. I have tried disconnecting everything and reconnecting and even tried multiple devices but nothing works. Is there a way to manually setup in victonconnect app so I can at least see my controller? Not sure what else to do but I am getting frustrated haha....

I don't think there's any way to reset them other than disconnecting all power and solar wires for a minute and then plugging it back in. If that doesn't work the bluetooth module is presumably dead. Does it even show up in your phones list of available bluetooth devices?

Hello @Victronuser16 , did you try to remove PV and Battery power from the MPPT.... wait 30 seconds and then connect all back again..

If this still is not working, then a VE.direct - USB cable should do the trick. If you have an Android device you can connect with this cable to your MPPT and hopefully see what is going on.

Regards, Rob
