NEX-5r says "Check the connected device" when using the included charger

Just got a Sony NEX-5r.  I charge it by plugging the camera into the wall using the included USB cable and charger.  If I turn it on while charging, it goes into "USB Mode" and then says "Check the connected device."  Is this normal?

I understand that it doesn't charge while on, but it just seems strange to me that the 5R apparently doesn't recognize it's own charger and gives this error message during a "normal" task such as charging.

Part of the reason I ask is the first time I asked I had it plugged in (and turned off) for about an hour and it only charged 2%.  It seems to be charging somewhat normally now, but I want to make sure this error message is normal.  Thanks.
