My dell 1220 projcetor doesn't shift to UPS power when current goes off. It starts showing lamp indication. My UPS backup is ok even then this is happening.


Look closely at your UPS or consult the manual. A lot of UPSs have 2 types of outlets. One type supplies power in the event of a power failure, the other offers surge protection only. Either you have it plugged into a surge only outlet or the projector is trying to draw more power than your UPS is capable of supplying.

Power supply malfunctioning


Most surge protection power boards will protect computer equipment from mains spikes and surges.
A better and more expensive solution is to use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). These units provide surge and spike protection and also provide power in the event of mains power failure.
Make sure you select an UPS model that meet the power requirements of all your computer equipment that is connected to the UPS with a mains down time of say 1/2 hour to give you time to shut down your computer in an orderly manner.

We have a new 60 inch LED Sharp TV. Will an APC #BN600R battery backup, 600 VA 360 watts, handle a power outage or surge for this TV and a Dish network DVR??


Hello,
Yes this UPS will protect the TV and the DVR.
The TV is pretty energy efficient, and uses just under 100watts powered on. The DVR uses under 30 watts, so under heavy load you won't go over 150 watts if just these two devices are plugged into the battery backup side of the UPS. I'm not sure how long this UPS battery last's in a power outage, but since you are not using it to the full 360 watts, you should get double time out of it, though of course, its best to power off your devices as soon as you can. Regards, Chris

if the system will not power on, I would suggest a new power supply as the first troubleshooting option as they are about 1/3 the price of the motherboard. The Flea Power indication on the motherboard only indicates power is reaching the board, not if all needed voltages are being received.
Normally on a Dell, if you are getting power then when you attempt to power on, you usually get a power LED indication on the power button. Solid Green/Blue is normal, Flashing Amber is Power supply bus failure, Solid Amber is normally a motherboard.
If you haven't bypassed the UPS and connected direct to the outlet, I would try that 1st, as the UPS could be the failure too.

Battery Backup/Surge Protector Question


Considering the low draw of power you intend for the UPS it will work well. I have two monitors on a strip plugged into UPS along with desktop, routers and modems, UPS handles all well, it's just shortens battery backup times. Have had to power down from outages several times without any probs.

Restart problem


You may have to hard reset it by unplugging the cord itself and plugging it back in. When power comes back during power shortage, there may be a power surge rushing to the modem/router causing it to behave abnormally. Also, you may want to put power surge protection on it as it may damage you modem/router as i did mine.

Dell dimension power supply / motherboard


you may consider reseating the P1 and P2 cables (from the power supply) connected to the motherboard.


you can go to www.support.dell.com and enter the service tag of your dell system (found at the back of your system) and look for the manual on how to add/remove the parts of the computer.

thanks.
