I installed a new battery and then system starts beeping continuously


Hi Anthony,

Is the UPS plugged in? Are there any lit LEDs on the front of the UPS? Did you replace the batteries in while the UPS was plugged in? Make sure that the battery you placed into the UPS is a good battery.

Hope this helps. If you would like more assistance please give me a call: 407.380.9200.

Red light on front is lit up- beeping- assume it has lost its battery power


You are assuming right. With the UPS on push and hold the on button for 3 seconds. This will start a self test. If the UPS dies then replace batteries

The unit beeps


I am getting these directly from the user manual (available here: http://www.apcmedia.com/salestools/ASTE-6Z7VAQ_R3_EN.pdf)

Issue: On Battery - UPS is supplying battery power to the load connected to the Battery outlets.

Visual Indication: Power On LED - ON (off during beep)

Audible Indication: Beeping 4 times every 30 seconds

Stops When: UPS transfers back to Power On operation, or when UPS is turned off.

- OR -

Issue: Sleep Mode - During On Battery operation the battery power has been completely exhausted and the UPS is waiting for utility
power to return to normal.

Visual Indication: None

Audible Indication: Beeping once every 4 seconds

Stops When: Utility power is restored, or if utility power is not
restored within 32 seconds, or the UPS is turned off.


All other issues are CONSTANT tones, which you did not specify, or there are no audible tones associated with it.

Strange noise comes out from the ups after a power cut


The Back-UPS Office unit has five different tones or alarms:

1. Four beeps every 30 seconds (On Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the Battery Power Supplied outlets are now supplying battery power as opposed to power from the utility. If the UPS determines that the input utility power is unsafe for your computer equipment, the UPS will switch to battery power.
Note: If the power disturbance is brief, you may only hear one or two beeps.

2. Continuous Beeping (On Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that a Low Battery condition has been reached and that the UPS will soon shutdown. Once the UPS transfers to On Battery operation, it can only stay on battery for a limited amount of time. The UPS will sound this alarm about two minutes before the batteries are totally exhausted. Once exhausted, the UPS will shutdown and turn off its output power to your equipment. If you hear this tone you should immediately shutdown your computer to prevent data loss or corruption.

3. Continuous Beeps for 30 seconds (Back UPS OFFICE 250 and 280 ONLY)
This alarm indicates the unit has detected an Overload condition after it has performed a self-test during start-up.

4. Continuous Two-Tone Beep

Getting red light and continuously beep sound to my UPS(Frontech)


hi

If it is showing the red light and continuous beep it shows that the battery is completely gone.

You can buy a battery and replace it by yourself.

Or get it to a professional to change the battery.

you need not replace the whole UPS its just a battery problem.

Thank you
