SOURCE: APC Backup UPS Model # BK200C salvageable?

Yes, but the battery may not be any good, though, and trying to charge it may damage the charger. A new battery is about $20. The surge suppressor will still work without the battery as long as it is connected to a properly grounded 3-wire circuit. If you decide to take a chance and charge the old battery, take precautions like keeping a watch on it should it explode or catch fire. Not trying to scare you, just looking at worst case scenario.

I would recommend replacing APC UPSs with ONEAC ONEPlus Power Conditioned UPSs, which have a perfect ground reference, longer lasting and more reliable batteries, and a 5 Year Warranty (2 Yrs on Batteries).

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    Hi,do I have to keep my ups plugged to a wall socke all the time?


    hi,
    the unit needs to be plugged in all the time. the unit is or should be fully automatic. higher priced units have a usb cord so you can check their status right on the computer, does your ups have a usb outlet? you might want to take it up to a computer store and buy a usb cable and then you can control your UPS with your computer. manually turning the UPS on and off shouldnt hurt anything.
    good luck

    Need information


    The Back-UPS is fairly straight-forward. The 9-pin connector (at the top of the back) is a serial port (RS-232) for the UPS data (when connected to a computer it will shut down the computer safely during a power outage). The next plugs are RJ-11 telephone jacks; the cord from the jack (wall) goes in on the left (some models have RJ-45 for network protection). The battery protected outlets are the three surrounded by black paint. The other three provide surge-protection only. Do not plug items like printers and scanners into the outlets that provide battery protection.

    I hope this helps.

    UPS are cickling and beep when I tried to start the computers


    When they beep it usually means they're running on battery power. So check to see if the power outlet (at the wall) has power (Just plug something else into it). If not, check your fuse/power box for the building. If its all UPS at the same time, its probably the buildings outlets.
