APC Smart UPS 1500 will not start.

Battery replacement light was on.
Replaced the battery with an new one.
UPS will not start. Breaker is not popped.
Put the old battery back in, and it still won't start.
Replaced several batteries for other clients with no problem.
I didn't have a meter, so unable to check the battery voltage.
All connections are good.

    Did you bump the circuit board when installing the battery? As I pushed the new battery in, the connector contacted the circuit board shorting out the unit. No longer functions. Terrible design in my opinion.

It could be that the cable to the front-panel got damaged during the battery replacement.  After all these years you would think APC would improve that aspect of their design.  All I can suggest is inspecting the cable and where it connects to the front panel.

APC SMARTUPS 1500VA Battery Problem When Replaced


You are correct. The APC Smart line has a partial charge when it's new. Similar to cordless phones, the work right away, but you're still supposed to charge them before use for best results.

Just leave it plugged in with no load for a couple hours and it will be fine.

APC UPS 1500 w/full load forces immediate reboot at pwr failure


Hello,

With a 980watt load the run time is only 7 minutes on a brand new battery. If you have the system on full load your run time will be much less and it has likely damaged the battery. here is the APC web site page for your model. If you are running that much equipment I think you need either a bigger UPS or another 1500 and spread the load out.

Smart UPS 1500 - battery level green lights blink on and off


You need to run recalibration on the unit.  The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB).  If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC.  It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future.  I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration.  By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing.  Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing).  This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.

APC Smart-UPS 1000VA shut down and now will not power on. How do I troubleshoot? No power, no lights, nothing and I've never tried to troubleshoot a UPS before. Where do I start?? :-( Thanks Chris


Hello Chris,

I have a similar unit and there is a fuse inside that can blow. Mine did. It worked again after replacing the fuse.

Another option...check the battery connections.

Another option...are the batteries getting old? If so, when they won't reach a certain level of charge the unit will not power on.

Finally, make sure you don't have a blow fuse or popped circuit braker in your home.

Hope this helps?
