Back UPS Model # BK200C salvageable?

I have an old UPS Model # BK200C that was never used after purchase 10 years ago. When I plug the power cord into an outlet then flip the power switch the I/O switch light is lit. Does that mean the unit and battery is still operable? Can the unit still operate as a decent surge suppressor if I remove the battery without replacing?

Yes you right you can just use it as surge protector, but it would be better if you gonna buy a battery for that unit aleast you got a back up in the event of power outage.

It is probably a bad battery. They usually don't last much longer than 2-3 years. You could try replacing the battery, but I would suggest just replacing the whole UPS with a new model.

These models were discontinued several years ago and it is possible that the batteries are dead from age.
If it is this model type that you like, you may want to purchase a corded model instead. Corded model simply plug into the wall and run from the cord. You will find this type at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

Pole chainsaw not working


No power could be a broken wire in the power cord, usually near the plug end. It could also be the switch, or the motor brushes. More rare is a broken wire in the motor or the saw case. Hope this helps!

My 500-A Ups is making Buzzing sound.


APC 500VA ups meant for 1 Desktop and one montiro it will have battery backup for 10 to 15 minutes for the above.

Normally, You should make the raw power connected to UPS should be always ON.

The power cables of CPU and Monitor is connected with UPS. When not in use, please press the Button available on the UPS.

The UPS Life is normally 2 to 3 Years only. Now you are getting the sound and Red Light will always blink and not allow to use the system.

Better replace the 12 Vols battery to get some more life for the UPS.

And check for any loose connection of the power cables connected with Raw Power and UPS System.

APC Backup UPS Model # BK200C salvageable?


Yes, but the battery may not be any good, though, and trying to charge it may damage the charger. A new battery is about $20. The surge suppressor will still work without the battery as long as it is connected to a properly grounded 3-wire circuit. If you decide to take a chance and charge the old battery, take precautions like keeping a watch on it should it explode or catch fire. Not trying to scare you, just looking at worst case scenario.

Unit is switching to battery power for now reason.


Any UPS monitors the incoming AC level to determine if it is needed or not.  I think the APC unit doesn't know any more when it is needed; it's sick.

Dynex Te685avr backup battery doesnt work


If the battery outlets do not work, typically the Dynex TE685AVR UPS (battery backup) just needs a new battery. These batteries usually last 3-5 years.

The model of the battery is a WKA12-7.5F2 and can be purchased at: http://www.replacementupsbattery.com/Product_pages/wka12-75f2.html.

Power keeps going on and off


I have the same problem.
It is most likely the battery.
I tested my battery on a Shumacher trickle charger, and the battery wouldn't hold a charge.
This is a common problem with UPS systems that use sealed lead acid batteries.
The longest life that you can expect with these types of batteries is 5 years MAX.
The battery can be replaced with a Radio Shack 12V/7200mAh Lead-Acid Battery
Model: CNB-GP1270F2 | Catalog #: 23-9030
Here is the link for the UPS users manual.
http://www.cyberpowersystems.com/user-manuals/CP550SL_UM.pdf
To replace battery, (unplug AC cord), turn the UPS upside down on floor or workbench.
Remove the 6 deeply recessed phillips screws, then pull the bottom off.
Remove the wire leads from the old battery (pull on the connectors, not the wires). Install new battery (red wire to red or + sign) and replace the bottom and screws. Careful, tighten the screws finger tight (plastic strips easily).
Plug in UPS and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps
