I am assuming that you installed your receptacles by attatching one wire to one screw .. not pigtailing the wires to the receptacle. It seems to me that your second receptacle has a missing link. Look at the sides on the receptacle, there should be a small link between the two terminal screws to carry the power to the next in line. If the link is missiong then replace that receptacle and you will be good ion the circuit .. If the link is there , then check you connections, sometimes we can catch a bit of the insulation in the terminal and then there is no transfer of electricity from that point on .. If you pigtail the wires and then connect the receptacle to the tail, then the circuit has more integrity. and we should always use the screw terminals, not the stab-ins. a better , more secure connection.

Not working when plugged


Most UPS's have split power. One is for Surge protected which is probably the half still working. The other come from a switching device called a relay. The relay is on the circuit board inside. If the battery backup'd half is dead, then that relaying is not connecting the power source to the three outlets. It could be due to a defective control circuit or the relay is bad. If you dont know electronics, either buy a whole new unit, or send it in for a rebuild with a place that knows what they doing. The manufacturers approved service places charge a reasonable price, but wont tell you anything for DIYers. I found a place in western canada that services them and does correspond with tips...that worked. And the obvious warning, the insides of a UPS can kill you if you dont take proper precautions

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    Electric range breaker trips at night when all asleep, resets ok


    Are you sure nothing else is using power? Sounds like a ground fault to me. Any devices which could cause harmonics which you can think of?

    Conext 900 AVR. Won't turn on, no lights. Power still out of the surge protected outlets, but no power out of the battery protected outlets. Opened it up, don't see anything damaged, using a meter checked...


    I had the same model/symptoms (no lights on the front panel). I had a compatible, though smaller, battery from a Verizon Fios backup unit, and I tried that in the UPS--it worked. That confirmed that I just needed a new battery.

    Half of a dual receptacle outlet is not working, the other recepacle in the outlet works fine. It is not switched to a light switch, and the breakser never trips when I use the receptacle that works....


    This is fixable but not by a computer tech. You will need to take this unit to a place that does TV's and other electronic repairs. They will best best at correcting this type of issue. Most techs will say just replace the unit.

    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.

    Receptacle Doesn't Work


    By far the most common problem with a receptacle is that it doesn?t work. Because receptacles are very inexpensive and easy to replace, it makes sense to replace them when they cease to work properly. But before you go to the trouble of buying a new one and installing it, make sure that the old one is truly defective. For a non-working duplex receptacle, first make sure the problem isn't with the appliance or lamp. Some appliances, such as hairdryers, have overload protectors that automatically shut them off if they begin to overheat. Try a second appliance or lamp in the receptacle. If the receptacle still doesn't work, you'll usually find that the circuit breaker has tripped or the fuse has blown, the receptacle has become faulty, or there is a switch that operates that receptacle and it needs to be turned on. The problem is rarely the wiring. 1) Test the receptacle with a second lamp or appliance. 2) Be sure that one half of the duplex receptacle (or the entire receptacle) isn't controlled by a switch in the room. 3) Check the circuit breaker (or fuse) for that receptacle's circuit to be sure it has not tripped (or blown). If it has, reset the breaker or replace the fuse, and try plugging a working lamp or appliance into the receptacle again. 4) If it still doesn't work, turn off the receptacle's circuit breaker, unscrew the cover plate from the receptacle, and use a voltage tester to be sure none of the wires in the electrical box are still "hot." Then check to be sure that the wires are securely fastened to the receptacle's terminals. 5) Look for signs of charring. Replace the receptacle if it looks damaged. 6) Put the cover plate back on, turn the circuit back on, and try the receptacle again. If it still doesn't work, turn the circuit back off, remove the receptacle cover, and replace the receptacle with one that has the same amp and voltage ratings. 7) If this doesn't solve the problem, call an electrician.
