Question about Tripp Lite Smart Pro UPS System

1 Answer

Smart pro keeps shutting down

My boss asked me to research this so please excuse my lack of technical knowledge!! He has a smart pro ups, on the front there are three green lights. The battery light keeps turning from green to red and then the system shuts down and in the process shuts down everything that is attached to it. What could be causing this?? Why would a fairly new system shut down, seemingly, for no reason at all?

Thanks so much.

It seems that the internal battery is bad, even if it is new but if it stays in the shopping store for long time it may become bad and not charge.

What has caused my ET 500-Plus motor to stop beeping

This error is not mentioned in the troubleshooting guide. As the beeping assists in confirming basic gate functions, it absence is detrimental. Lacking technical knowledge of this gate, I refer you to technical support for the company.

How to ask a question.

When asking a technical question regarding vehicular repair, I can only assume that if you are seeking knowledge, you are doing the repairs yourself. This raises a concern with me when the questions asked are vague, lack details as simple as year/make/model/engine size and type, lack correct terminology/spelling, improper references, etc.


That is why there are mechanics. Sometimes a basic, low cost repair can turn into thousands of dollars if done incorrectly. For example, just a simple $2.00 fuse installed incorrectly can do irreversible damage to a $3000.00 ECM or other sensitive electronic component. Inexperience in properly supporting vehicles or securing heavy components can result in property damage, serious injury and possible death.

My advice is based on personal experiences. Many variables can determine your outcome. Advice/information from friends, co workers and research is used whenever I do a repair. I have education I paid for so I assume it to be correct. I use my knowledge as a base and may not have specific experience with your vehicle. I am currently employed as a diesel/refrigeration technician.

Ford xr6 94

Whats this vehicle i know its a ford but cannot say i have seen the engine type before . But its got four wheels so start at the basics its a 96 so i would suspect that it has a thermo switch in the radiator so check here first if not then its like the mondeo zetec engine where the temperature sensor has 3 wires to it and the third wire goes to the computer which turns the fans on via the relays but just not sure of type as never seen this vehicle or this version and it must be a down under brother from the accent on the video so please excuse my lack of knowledge about this product .Says transmission lock down ?? not sure here as providing your moving then engine should stay cool without the fans running .

Lower rotor of my nano hercules helicopter is not turning

I have the nano hercules and I had the same problem. The lower rotor would spin funny or not at all. Upon taking apart the heli (there really isnt too many pieces, just a lot of little screws so keep track of them), i found the culprit to be a tiny white gear with teeth had broken and the larger spinning gear was barely making a connection to the small teeth on the small gear (excuse my lack of technical vocabulary). I was able to remove the motor, slide the small gear w small teeth down just a tad so the big gear and the small gear lined up, added a bit of modelling glue for support and it works like new again. Hope that helps!

My gfs 1999 blazer starts up, revs very high then shuts down. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a possible lack of fuel problem. Remove air intake hose from front of throttle body, then try spraying (carefully ) a little WD-40 into front of throttle body when it starts just to see if it will keep it running a little longer. If it does, your lacking proper fuel supply. Do you hear pump cycle (hum) when you turn the key to on position? I guess a good place to start if it is lack of fuel would be to change fuel filter. If it turns out to be something worse like pump, your going to want that filter changed anyway.
Let me know what you find.

Would USB alone support they keys to work?

try this
get the manufacturers web page up for that key board, find the down load for that model and your operating system and down load the software and driver
to make sure go to control panel > keyboard , right click to get properties and click on compatibility tab
click box and high light your operating system and apply
regardless if usb ( plug and play -PNP) or wifi it still needs drivers and you cannot rely on Microsoft for having the latest drivers

Abnormal shutdown

This could be a hardware fault. Your power button could possibly be getting stuck whe you turn it on. This message only comes up when you maually hit the power button on the laptop. When it comes up again, try pushing the power button quickly to loosen it up, then hit cancel and wait to see if it happens again. If it does you will have to get your power button looked at.
