This unit will require you to Brain dead the whole UPS.
To see if it is actually a condition that exists with the hardware or if it was just a lock condition.
Steps:
1)Power down unit completely
2)Unplug all batteries
3)Unplug from wall

4)Leave unplugged for about 5 minutes or so WITH NO POWER AT ALL.

5)Plug batteries back in
6)Plug back into wall
7) Turn unit back on

Log into console of UPS and see if the condition returns.
If it does not return your good to go.

If the error returns. You have to replace the WHOLE battery pack.

APC has told me their units are typically good for 4-6 years, after that their units cannot hold the same tolerances as they did when they were brand new.

Hope this helps.

Liebert gxt2-10000rt208 fault indicator and A + E LEDs on. Did anyone know this alarm?


I'm going to go on a limb and say the unit also has the bypass indicator on as well, is that correct? A=On bypass due to overtemperature condition & E=On bypass due to inverter failure.
I can't see in the picture or hear it but is it beeping also? 1 second beep every 2 seconds? Thats on internal bypass. If none of this is true then you have a tricky problem.

Apc symmetra px stuck on self test


Place UPS into internal Bypass (Static Bypass) via the display. Then place unit back to Normal from Internal Bypass(Static Bypass). See if that helps. Or shut the unit down completely by placing UPS into Static Bypass first and then place UPS into external bypass mode, switch is located on the bottom front of the UPS. Please follow the UPS Manual to help you understand the procedures. Also recommend doing this after hours, not during business hours.

Try and push and hold the on button for about 3 sec. This will start a manual battery test. If only three of the five battery led illuminate allow the ups to recharge the batteries for 24 hours.

Only one side of the outlets work...


From the User Manual:

“OVERLOAD/CHECK BATTERY” LED: this red LED lights continuously after a self-test to
indicate the capacity of the battery-supported outlets has been exceeded. To clear the overload, unplug some of your equipment from the battery-supported outlets; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self-Test. If the UPS continues to detect an overload, remove more equipment and repeat the self test until successful.

CAUTION! Any overload that is not corrected by the user immediately following a self-test may cause the UPS to shut down and cease supplying output power in the event of a blackout or brownout.

The LED flashes to indicate the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. If the LED flashes (and a continuous alarm sounds) during a prolonged blackout or brownout, the UPS’s batteries are nearly out of power; you should save files and shut down your equipment immediately.

If the LED flashes following a UPS self-test (after the UPS is turned ON), it may indicate that the battery needs to be replaced. Allow the UPS to recharge continuously for 12 hours; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self Test.

If the LED continues to flash, contact Tripp Lite for service. Should your UPS require battery replacement, visit Tripp Lite on the web at www.tripplite.com/support/battery/index.cfm to locate the specific replacement battery for your UPS.

Hope this helps!

Unplug the computer. Then run the UPS self-test and the unit will display whether it finds an overload fault, whether the battery needs to be charged or replaced.
Here are the instructions (copied from the User Manual):
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.

My APC RS 900 UPS is making a beeping noise and the red light on the front is blinking. It seems to be working, but what is it trying to tell me?


Without knowing which light is flashing I can only guess. From my experience and assuming it is the battery light that is lit and NOT the overload light, it can be one of two things, one is your battery is near the end of its life and needs to be replaced, and the other is that your battery is improperly connected.

To confirm if your battery needs to be replaced or not, you can run a self test. Ensure that the battery has had time to fully charge (and that it is definitely correctly connected), and then turn off the UPS, and turn it back on. It will automatically run a self test.

if the light stays lit, you need to order new batteries. One source is here: http://www.refurbups.com/APC-Back-UPS-RS-900-BR900-Replacement-Batteries

If it IS the overload light that is lit, you simply have too much equipment attached to the UPS, more than the inverter can handle. Try removing some equipment until it turns off.

Bypass LED on the ups is on


This an excerpt from the UPS's manual:
The Bypass LED illuminates indicating that the UPS is in bypass mode. Utility power is sent directly to connected equipment during bypass mode operation. Bypass mode operation is the result of an internal UPS fault, an overload condition, or a user initiated command through an accessory. Battery operation is not available when the UPS is in bypass mode.

Belkin UPS F6C800 Problem


Hello,

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to Shutdown of UPS whenever there is a Power Surge. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.


I see that you are using


Generally, the issue happens if you are not using the UPS as per Manufacturer specifications or if it is overloaded frequently then UPS  shutdowns


To isolate the issue, I recommend you to check and go through below information.

If you see ON BATTERY a Yellow LED OR Flashing Yellow
LED with Audible Alarm (Beeping) then it means this condition for the On-Battery LED can indicate 1of 2 problems: They are:

1. The UPS is on battery backup and an intermittent audible alarm is on. The UPS will begin shutdown procedure.

2. Battery is low. The UPS will sta rt shut down. The buzzer sounds an audible alarm .


if you see a Solid Red on your UPS , then it means that UPS is either fault or overload.  It happens if there is a issue with UPS. The LED will be lit continuously and the unit will sound an audiable alarm for 10 seconds. Other cause could be with Battery is weak or Bad, the Battery needs to be replaced under this condition.

If you use a Flashing Red LED, then it means that battery is trying to give more power than it should. It happens then UPS is overloaded.

Let me tell you,,,,

Only data sensitive equipment such as a computer, monitor and external drive should be plugged into these outlets. Battery power is automatically

provided in case of a power outage. Power (AC or battery) is not supplied to these outlets when the UPS is switched off. (Do not plug surge protectors or power strips into the battery back up outlets).

 Most Important factor that effects the issue is that,
 

Caution: Never connect a laser printer or scanner to the backup outlets of UPS with other computer equipment. A laser printer or scanner draws significantly more power when in use than when idle. This may overload the UPS.


And caused the UPS to shutdown whenever there is Power Surge

To isolate the issue further, let me tell you the way where you can test the UPS if it is fine or not.

1. Charge the UPS for around 4 hours, and try below steps.

  

To Conduct a Self Test

 

Use the self-test to verify both the operation of the UPS and the condition of the battery. In normal utility power, push the On/Off/Test

button less than 2 seconds and the UPS performs a self-test function. During the self-test, the UPS operates in back-up mode.

Note! During the self-test, the UPS briefly operates on- battery backup power (the on-battery LED comes on). If the UPS passes

the self -test, it returns to on-line operation. If the UPS fails the self-test, it immediately returns to on-line operation and lights the replace battery LED. The loads are not affected. Recharge the battery overnight and perform the self- test again. If the replace battery LED is still on, the battery will need to replaced.

 

This should resolve the issue for you.

 

 If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com . I'll be glad to help you.

 

Bye.
