This means that either the connected equipment is drawing more power than the Back-UPS can provide, or that the UPS battery is faulty.


Try the following:

Move one or more equipment power plugs from Battery Backup outlets
to Surge Only outlets

Charge the battery cartridge for 16 hours. Back-UPS runtime is
reduced until the battery cartridge is fully charged.

Replace the battery.

If the above does not fix it , not even replacing the battery, then the UPS is faulty.

Here is also the manual.

Benefits of a UPS (Uninterrupted power supply


We all use many devices and equipments that run on electricity. For all these to function properly they need uniform power supply (constant flow of electricity). As the electric supply in many countries is not uniform there is a need for a device to correct it. There are many such devices available in the market today. For example UPS (Uninterrupted power supply), Voltage Stabilizer, Constant Voltage Transformer are such devices available today.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Why buy a UPS?</u></b><br />We can never guarantee that we will get constant power. The power supply always has fluctuations. Surges, Spikes, Brownouts, Blackouts and Noise can damage your electrical appliances especially your computer. To prevent this from happening you need a device that does power conditioning. Electricity has to be uninterrupted. If the voltage is higher than the specified level then it is 'Over Voltage'. If the voltage is lower than the specified level then it is 'Under Voltage'. Both Spike and Surge come under 'Over Voltage' category. But there is a small difference between spike and surge. If there is very high voltage for an instant but comes back to normal immediately then it is called 'Spike'. If there is very high voltage for a slightly longer period then it is called 'Surge'. If the voltage is dangerously reduced to very low within a short period of time then it is called 'Brownout'. When this happens, the computer can be seriously damaged. If the power supply is totally cut then it is called 'Blackout'. Noise can mix with electromagnetic or radio waves or any signals. This is called 'Line Noise'. This may also reduce the voltage level to very low within a short period of time.<br /> <br /> <b><u>How can the UPS provide power when the main electrical supply is cut?<br /></u></b>A UPS has an internal battery. With this battery charger, an Inverter is also present. The inverter converts the 'Direct current' supplied by the battery to 'Alternatinc current' as required by the computer. When there is electrical supply the charger in the UPS charges the internal battery. When there is a power cut, the battery kicks in to supply the DC which is converted to AC by the inverter and power is supplied to computer.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>What if the battery loses its power?</u></b><br />When there is power cut, the required power is taken from the battery. Therefore the battery keeps losing its capacity. If the power supply comes back before the battery is depleted then the battery charger will start recharging, but if the power supply doesn't come back then the battery keeps supplying until it totally drains out. When the battery drains below a certain level the UPS sounds an alarm for your to shut down your computer and turn off the UPS. Some UPS' even have a built in system that shuts your computer down for you after a certain amount of UPS uptime.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>How long can the UPS provide power when there is a blackout?</u></b><br />This all depends on the specifications of the UPS and the requirement of the computer. A 600vA UPS for example can supply power to a computer with a 550W power supply for about 10 minutes or more.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>Tips for buying an UPS</u></b><br />The backup time of your UPS is the most important you need to consider. Other than that, you should know how many KVA (Kilo Volt Ampere) your UPS has. A computer needs atleast 0.5 KVA (500VA) to function. If you are planning to connect more than one computer to a single UPS then you need to get one with a higher KVA.<br /> <b></b> <br /> <b><u>What type of battery does a UPS use?</u></b><br />UPS uses <b>SMF</b> batteries (Sealed Maintenance Free). These type of batteries can be used for 5 to 7 years continuously.

What can I do if I am only getting 110v instead of 140v?


If you are getting 140v, you have a problem. I assume you are talking about powering the computer. Standard voltage in the United States in 120v, but I could range from 114v to 126v.

Why do you think you should be getting 140v?

I have a computer with ups .in my area power flutucation is there .i connected all the devices to the ups .when power flutucation happens . it restarting my systems some times my modem got off and on for...


If it is only a very short fluctuation, your system should not shut down if the UPS is working properly. Some things to check...
1. Make sure you have your computer components plugged into the outlets marked "Battery Backup" not on the outlets marked "Surge Protection". (The words may be slightly different on different models) Only things plugged into the "Battery Backup" outlets will keep running when the power fluctuates. The other outlets do not get any battery backup.
2. If the unit has been drained by a lot of power drops recently, it may not have enough power stored up to keep your whole system running the next time the power drops, even briefly. Especially if it is an older unit, as the battery itself does wear out over time.
3. As for the "modem" clicking on and off... are you sure it's the modem clicking? Most UPS's make a noticeable sound when they kick into battery mode and back again. It can sound like a modem click. Just an idea.

My Tripp Lite UPS has a flashing yellow light for the battery. What does this mean and how do I get it back on line.


The light means that the life of the battery has expired. It needs to be replaced.

You did not mention a model number- I believe that some older Tripp Lites have a bypass button in the rear that will allow it to start up with either a dead battery or no battery at all. If you have such a button, unplug the UPS. Press and hold the button in, plug your UPS back in, and keep holding it in for about ten seconds. Alternatively, try unplugging your UPS, pressing and holding the front ON button, and plugging in while continuing to hold the button, again for about ten seconds. If there is no response, your unit probably does not have a bypass capability.

Most newer UPS syatems will not allow you to operate them unless the battery is in good condition. You may have no option but replacing the battery to continue using your unit.

My Sony Vaio PCV-RX860 won't boot and makes a clicking sound.


It's usual that new desktop PC's have fans sounds and keyboard LED's flashing during booting..There's nothing wrong on that, as long as you can get in to your PC OS.

APC 1500 battery back-up


Unplug the printer. Generally, a UPS is to let you safely save your open files or documents and safely shut down. It is not really meant to keep everything such as printers and other items running.
If it is a laser printer, that is the problem.
If you have an older CRT monitor, that uses a large portion of the battery power capacity.

Also, never plug in a "heater" into a UPS.

hope this helps!

Hard drive keeps shuting off


That it disconnected your load and didn't provide battery backup suggests that the noise is on your end...maybe you're plugging hair dryers in with the PC? If not, get all the data you can from the APC logs and from calling APC and decide whether your powersupply is going bad or the APC thing is due for some warrantee service. If you were running fractional-horse motors and heaters and A/C from the APC...stop it.
