    I reset my Geo Solo II and now it isn't working properly 5th Jun 17 at 10:29 AM
    Hi,

    Backstory: We had squirrels living under or solar panels, so I got out the Solo II to check everything was still working and they hadn't chewed through any cables or knocked them loose. The Solo display wasn't showing anything so I assumed the worst, however the main box in the garage was showing we were still generating electricity. I reset the Solo and messed with the settings, before eventually realising the problem was with the batteries in the transmitter.

    Since resetting the Solo I've obviously done something horribly wrong since even last night when it was dark, it was showing that we were generating a lot of electricity, and right now whilst typing this at 10:30am it's showing that we're generating absolutely nothing



    Any idea on what could be causing this please? I've set it up with the following:
    • Micro-Gen
    • PV Array KW: 8 (complete guess - we have 16 panels)

    Really at a loss with this (and now it's back and showing we're generating 2.2kw even though there's no change in sunlight)

    Thank you

    Hi,
    Have you paired it with the Transmitter. I had to re-pair when I changed the display.
    Also with 16 panels you are more likely to have a 4KW system.
    3.99KW SunEdison (14 * 285W), Solis inverter, iBoost, Herts, roughly SW facing

    Thank you! 4KW sounds right, I'll update the settings tomorrow

    How do I check its paired correctly? It says it is paired but I'm unsure if its setup in the right way

    Thank you! I do have the manual but it's quite vague about setting it up from scratch - I guess they expect the installers to do it for you
