Hi kumaraswamy5,
it seems that either the UPS is connected to an outled which isn't grounded properly or the battery inside of the UPS needs a replacement.
On APC's website you can find the compatible batteries for your device and where to order them. Replacing the batteries is very easy so don't be afraid of that!

So it sounds like your system won't hold power while running on battery power is that right? then you probably need a replacement. Here is an easy way to get a replacement http://www.batteryinternational.com/apc-backups-es-be500u-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f2.html That should be just the batter you need. Hope that helps

ups with 300 watts can only back up 1 computer, though it can handle 2 computers but not too long. your ups battery life span are good only for 2 to 3 years. for battery replacement you can visit the nearest service center and ask for battery replacement. it will not cost you much.

APC Back-UPS ES 350 - when powered on has a blinking green light Is this normal


A blinking green light is likely an indication that the internal battery is nearing the end of its usable life cycle. If it's over 3 years old this is likely the case. To test, plug something in to the battery outlets and pull the plug of the UPS from the wall. If you get a short runtime (or none at all) it's the battery. Batteries are under $20 and can be found here: http://www.batteryinternational.com/apc-backups-es-be350u-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

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.
