I am a total electronics noob trying to start out, so I purchased a small solar panel, of 110x80 mm, of 5V and 200mA. However, when I tried it this morning and connected it to my multimeter, I only got a reading for the voltage (around 5V, regardless of whether or not there was any light shining on it). I could not get a reading for the current (only 0), even though I put it in direct (altugh very faint, for it is morning in the winter) sunlight. These are two pictures of front and back side.
I thought that I should get some current every time there is any light, even though it could be very small. Why is this not so? Also, I thought that the voltage would be less if it is not on direct sunlight. How come this is not so?
And this one is for the voltage:
