Sounds like the controller battery is done, may need to replace it.

There are issues with false battery failure warnings which are corrected by later firmware so I would flash the controller to the latest level before replacing the battery. They are only guaranteed for 3 years but they normally last at least twice that.

I have several battery complains from my HP box (since I support almost 600 HP servers). 90 % of it, I can just upgrade my firmware to solve the issue. 10 % of it, I have to replace the battery to stop the annoying messages.
One thing I notice, it is not always the latest firmware is the best. If you have an old server, your case is G2 must be over 5 years old, its hardware may not support the latest firmware. Try to downgrade firmware to version 7.5 or 7.6 to see if you can fix it. Download and install this firmware:
