Question about Opti -UPS E-Series 420E (UPS 420E) UPS System

1 Answer

No power to stuff plugged into it

We had a power surge today and ever since, the UPS doesn't give power to whatever is plugged into it. The light is on (solid green) but my computer and monitor are not getting power. They get power if you plug them straight into the wall, so I know they are not burned out. Is the UPS messed up?

I would like a replacement router as this one keeps turning its self off up tofour times a dayp tivo


Are you certain that it's the router that's at fault? Is it wireless or wired? What about your wall power?: Does it fluctuate too much?

If wall power is the true culprit, you may find that a UPS ("Unlimited Power Supply") proves quite useful. Basically, a UPS is a sophisticated battery solution--the units incorporate powerful lead-acid batteries--the same type of batteries as those used for starting autos--merely smaller and less powerful.

A surge protector can't bump up power--a UPS may, though--it attempts to "smooth" current--putting less stress upon devices-- perhaps making them last better and longer.

In the event of a power emergency, UPSes may continue to power your TV/TiVo and your router/modem (perhaps located in another room). At least for a few minutes, you may be able to obtain news and weather. Given that your smartphone or tablet is dead, a UPS certainly may keep it alive. (UPSes do "beep" when running on battery power.)

I've noted at stores that your TiVo proves quite expensive. The UPS concept has been invoked widely--practically since the beginning--in business/enterprise, educational, and government computing. Thus, the UPS proves out now as a better home theater solution.

Where your router is, your modem likely is nearby: Plug it into a UPS, as well. Don't get rid of your surge-protector!: Those will remain useful. Certainly, you may plug it into a UPS--if you need more sockets. (Naturally, every such solution has its limits.)

UPS batteries likely will last several years: Generally, DIY replacement proves relatively easy. A great many online vendors service battery customers--replacement batteries at stores now are proving increasingly more available, too. Many differing "brands" often prove compatible.

One fault of a UPS: It's yet another "vampire current" in your home. When you leave your home or sleep, you may switch off the UPS--that ends that current drain. When leaving for vacation, you may then switch it off and unplug it--then, all connected devices are protected from lightning surges while you're away!

Lightning damage proves more common than most Americans believe. Nothing, save perhaps unplugging, can prevent damage from a direct lightning hit. In most circumstances, I do believe that a UPS will protect better then than surge protectors. My brother's TV was damaged by a lightning surge during a crazy weather event--he used a good surge protector, too: My stuff never has been damaged by lightning surges, though. I live nearby.

Needless to say, I've been a big fan of the UPS for a long time!

UPS backup problem


Hi Shrichandra,

Make sure that the battery you are using from the APC UPS is the correct one for the EnerG UPS, just because it fits doesn't make it the right one.

No power


Pull the SD card from the top and make sure you have the appropriate update from the cruz website on it. Follow flash instructions.
Test the power cord with a voltmeter to see if its giving power. ****** works well too. Not really don't do that, I mean it'll work but get a tool to check it. Someone who works on cars or their house will probably have one.
If that doesn't work, open the back, pull the battery plug and then plug it back in. If it still doesn't turn on you're probably beat. You can look further into digging in and removing other internal parts to attempt to reset whatever it is that is wrong but most likely it's an issue along the power line on the way in or the jack itself. If it had a surge it'll be something further that is fried. In most cases you're buying a new one.
Keep an eye out for the t301 its much more capable and prices drop to about $70 during sales. The touch screen is real (capacative) which is a major improvement and you have a lot more space to download stuff.
goodluck

Why does the 4 outlets (surge only) of my cyberpower 685avr work while the 4 outlets with battery doesn't?


The battery only works when it isn't plugged into the wall. That's what a battery backup is for,so when the power goes out, the battery kicks in.

Advanced power options settings UPS for blackout buster?software


I have to answer this question with just plain old common sense. Get a new one! This is crazy. If you get a new one, you will have a better, more upto date and something you can handle with todays OS and obviously new batteries. That is too old to mess with. I fixed a powerware once and the plastic was falling apart and the PC board was held together with a rubber band. Not worth it.

Plugging an UPS into a surge arrester or plugging in a surge arrester into the UPS


There should be no problem with what you are trying to do, one way or another. Just be sure not to overload your UPS (battery protected outlets). I myself have a power bar connected to my UPS to increase the number of battery protected outlets and everything works fine.

UPS issues with bad power


First, most of the UPS sensitivity can be adjusted. Setting a higher sensitivity will make the UPS compensable much faster if the current goes to high to too low thus always providing a good power quality to the equipments. For example, on a BackUPS RS the low level can be configured from 94V to 104V and the high level from 126V to 136V. An entry-level UPS such as the APC BackUPS ES will switch to battery mode as soon as the power goes out of the sensitivity range. On the other hand, a high-end UPS for workstation like the APC BackUPS RS has a feature called Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) that compensate at some extent without requiring the battery; this makes the battery last longer before needing to be replaced.

Second, most of the UPS have "Battery Protected" and "Surge only" outlets. Make sure that the computers are connected to the "Battery Protected". The "Surge only" outlets will only protect from parasites or surges like a thunder storm. They should be used for less important stuff like a desk lamp or devices with high demand peek such as a laser printer.

Third, the use of a power bar connected to the "Battery Protected" side should not have any impact as long as it is not overloading the UPS. Personnaly, I have a power bar connected to both my UPS.

Battery/Surge outlets not working...


Sounds like the UPS battery is bad, or the circuit break on it has gone. Is there a reset button on the UPS? Do you have the program that came with the UPS to check the battery status, those programs typically let you run a test on it also.

Printer Surge


I agree with first thought circuit overload.

I dont think it is the printer, I think it is your power supply in house. Just moving it to another socket does not change it from what might already be a circuit with a lot of load already.

You are experenceing surges that are normal operation ie at power on quatz lamp turns on reaching temp of 180 deg cel, then idles, if print command is issued back on comes the lamp drawing power.
