    They say that changing some optocoupler right down the PCB solves this. Any comments?

Fault: Low Ouput Voltage

Cause: Surge Taken by load / Short Circuit on load / Fault in inverter

Remedy: Remove load and restart UPS / Try a different load / Repair or swap out

Hi to All
I had the same issue where the UPS started (loaded or not) and immediately sounded an alarm with Low O/P V and it tripped the breaker at the mains. Tried starting the UPS with no power to the device as well (cold start) with no success.
I removed all batteries to reset the UPS and powered up again, same thing happened.
I then moved the UPS without any batteries to another power point in my home (different breaker on the mains) and device booted with "DC bus Fault"
Powered everything down, loaded all the batteries and it booted up 100%!!! So it turned out to be the breaker for that location... Worth a try and will save you allota tom!

I need a manual for Tripp lite omniplus 1000 lcd


Changing the battery

If your Tripp LIte Omni 1000 LCD display a fault icon and beeps after changing the battery, try the advice given by the buzzerman which worked perfect in this case:


1. Turn the UPS on. Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.

2. Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until beeps several times). The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound. At the end of this process the fault icon and the beeping turned off.

Tripp Lite OMNI 1000 LCD will not stay on


Turn UPS on: Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.
Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until alarm beeps several times).
The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound.
If the fault icon remains lit, the battery-supplied outlets are overloaded. Unplug powered devices until you remove the overload.
If the "Replace" icon remains lit and alarm continues to sound, the UPS batteries need to be recharged or replaced. Allow UPS to charge for 24 hours and repeat self-test.
