just check that you are not overloading the ups or make sure that the ups output is not connected to the input of the ups in most of such cases almost all light indicators start blinking

I change batteries but red lights keep blinking


It is possible that the replacement batteries are defective or installed incorrectly.

The red light on my mouse keeps on blinking


Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse? Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Light
Device Model Status Single long green blink Rechargeable Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on. Slow green blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly. Steady green Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging. Steady green Presenter Mouse (Japanese version) Laser pointer is on. Red/green blink Wireless Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver). Slow red blink Non-rechargeable Batteries are low and need to be replaced. Slow red blink Rechargeable Batteries are low and need recharging. Fast red blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error.
Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad.
Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them. Steady red Presenter Mouse (Standard version) Laser pointer is on.

Is red light on for overload or for battery?
If on overload, try reducing the load on the UPS. If red light on overload persists buy a new UPS (overload fault hard to repair).

Red light on battery - replace the batteries.

Red light on boost or buck, may mean that the nominal voltage of ups and the limits need to be changed/corrected.

Metz 76-56 battery charger keeps flashing red light


One of your cells is defective.
It maybe brand new, but we don't know how long it's been in the box.


You will need a DVM to troubleshoot the battery.

Tv light standby red just keeps blinking after replacing bulb


Hi,
If red light was not blinking before lamp replacement and after that it start blinking 3 times then pause for three seconds and again blink, check lamp cover that has not been fixed on tv or it is not fixed/ seated correctly there.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp.
Hope these info will help. If red light is blinking other than 3 times, let me know how many times it is blinking along with tv model number written at rear to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

Our Liteway scooter has been unused for a couple of years. We purchased a new battery and charged it up but it won't run. The freewheel device is in place and we've done all the troubleshooting we know per...


terry, did you replace both batteries? If you did check your wiring connections on the batteries. Make sure that the polarity of the wiring is correct( red to positive and black to negative) and if you replaced just one battery then you have to replace the other one also. Once you have 2 new batteries installed and have made sure the wiring is correct. Turn on the scooter and see if you still get the flashing lights look at your manual and see that the 3 flashes mean a short between the batteries and the motor. If you continue to get the error you will have to contact your local provider or a service company to check the scooter.. Hope this helps

Overload Red button is on even after pressing reset button @ back


Try unplugging some equipment from the UPS. The total load should be less than 865 W. Printers and scanners often are culprits.Some gaming desktop computers can have a power supply that will be too much for this UPS. (I've found that even having the printer on the surge only part of the UPS can be a problem. I have the printer on a separate surge protector.)

Since the overload is new, did you add any equipment to the UPS recently or upgrade components?

If you reduce the load, and the problem continues, the UPS may have a fault in the circuitry. If it is under warranty, contact APC.

I hope this helps.

(I have replaced APC units after 3+ years when they can't properly recharge the battery - with a new battery. The symptoms are 1) getting a overload when a small load is on the UPS. Small load - desk lamp, 13" TV or 2) not keeping the item on when the power goes off.)

Red light blinking with audible alarm. Compressor


That is the compressor starting relay trying to start the cooling cycle and the overload protector kicking off. You can try installing a new start device for about $50.00 but you are most likely looking at a compressor replacement which runs about $400.00

Sorry for the bad news

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.
