As you can see in the wiki, the led is controlled by a dedicated charger
IC, and the only thing there related with software is a pin for the system
to be able to see when the charge is complete. It's possible that your
solar setup is not able to give enough current to the ben for charging and
running, maybe it's only supplying it 50mA or less...
