@umbach264 Before installing the Solar Panel, did you charge your Outdoor Camera's battery for at least 5 hours? The battery does need to be fully charged for the Solar Panel to maintain it. 

If the battery is fully charged, does the Solar Panel get at least three hours of direct sunlight a day? That is its minimum requirement to keep the Outdoor Camera's battery topped off. I would also try unplugging the Solar Panel and plugging it back in to ensure that its connection is secure.
