Check if the unit has a breaker on the back and reset it. The unit doesn't seem to be getting power.

APC SURT3000XL UPS


The fault indicator means that there is a fault in the circuitry of the UPS. It could be the control board or another part of the system. (If the batteries were bad, you would see the Replace Battery light illuminate.) If the SURT3000XL is under warranty, contact APC. The standard warranty period is 2 years for repair/replacement. Note: you'll probably have to pay for the shipping of the unit. If the unit is out of warranty, replace it with a new UPS.

I hope this helps.

I have an Symmetra RM APC and there is an amber light showing and a beeping about every 30 seconds.


Hi Ewiesemann,

The amber light on the UPS usually means that the unit is 'on battery' -- meaning that input power is affected. Check to make sure that unit is plugged in and check to make sure that a breaker on a panel feeding the UPS power hasn't tripped.

Hope this helps.

You need to reset the unit to recognize the new battery, I had same problem with one apc smart ups on the bench the other day.

On ours we had to turn off the unit unplug the battery wait 5mins

press the on key and hold for 20secs

reconnect battery

plug in to mains

and start as normal. We did this but still had very low battery time and the flashing lights, so we disconnected the comms interface, that sovled the problem.

It may work for your unit, suggest you check the manual before you try if you are unsure

Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

What does it mean by the beep sound from the UPS ES 350 unit?


Ok, 3-4 years is a much as you can expect from an ups battery so replacement is indicated. The beeps are letting you know the battery is not able to keep up with demand. So either you have recently added to the system or the battery/s failing.

1 Answer

It's an older unit that i just tried. When i plug


Try installing the software that is included with the unit. If you didn't get the software, I believe you can download it for free from APC's website. The software will typically give you the status of the batteries and let you know if you need to replace them. If you can't get the software, take the batteries out (keep note of the wiring configuration) and test each battery using a DC voltmeter. The batteries should read around 13.5 volts DC. If they are around or below 11.5v DC, it's time for new batteries. This model, if its the black 110v version, requires the RBC32 which can be found at: http://www.batteryinternational.com/apc-rbc32--f2.html

Good luck and I hope I could help.

Beep and yellow green light problem


It sounds like you may need a new battery. The batteries are continuously tested by the UPS and it could be that the voltage is passing one test, and failing the next which is resulting in the light flashing. You can test the battery with a voltmeter. It should read over 11.5 volts, if not you need a new battery set. You can get batteries from http://www.batteryinternational.com/ups-batteries-apc-batteries.html
