Re: Power issue?

Hi, More often than not, it is the internal battery of the UPS that causes switching off. In some instances it may be that too many devices are attached and drawing power from the UPS. In rare instances, it is the electronics controller that is at fault. 1. Since checking the battery involves opening the unit, you may be better off seeking the services of a qualified professional (there are dangerous voltages inside the unit even when off); 2. Try removing some of the devices connected to the UPS and simply leave the PC itself connected to the UPS. All others may be plugged in to the mains; 3. Checking if it's the electronics would be similar to # 1. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

We had a power outage for about 45 minutes a few days ago. Ever since then the Powerware 3110 has been beeping. I turned it off and left it plugged in overnight and when I turned it back on the beeping...

This could be several things, fortunately the device should actually be helping you to diagnose the issue. There are different beeps for different issues. They are as follows:

1 Beep Every 5 Seconds = Power Outage\Loose Plug Connection\Tripped Circuit Breaker\Power Cord Damage or Failure

2 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Low Battery Alarm

3 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Battery Needs Charging\Service\Replacement

3 Beeps Every 5 Minutes = The Battery is discharged and battery power is unavailable (If this continues battery replacement may be necessary)

1 Beep Ever 1/2 Second = Power Requirements exceed the UPS Capacity (remove some equipment to lighten the load on the unit)

Continuous Beep = Short Circuit / Input Voltage out of Range / UPS Fault (Likely replacement of entire unit)

That should help diagnose the actual issue. If it turns out the battery needs to be replaced they can be found online for around $20. A simple google search for Powerware 3110 Battery should return what you're after. Good luck!

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.

Cbyer power 525Sl keeps turning off and on and beeps.

I have the exact same issue with my 525SL.
When you push in the red button - the green power light comes on for about 5 seconds = then the light goes out and the device plays a single long beep for about 5-8 seconds.

Given the dialogue here - I took out the battery and bough a brand new BB replacement battery and returned it into the unit as it should. The device continues to have the same behavior.

So it is NOT always a new battery that will fix the system.
Don't jump into spending $30.00 for a replacement.
Look into this further or you'll wind up wasting your money.

External hard disk and pcmcia cardbus

There may not be enough power from the cardbus to run it. That bus is very low current to power it up so you will need the power cord.

Try reinstalled the card drivers.
