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.

    I have a Symmetra LX 16000 , and ups sen me the message ...Critical - UPS A main intelligence module fault exists.. code 0x0203.

    Hi Scabcmx,

    Without knowing the full model number of your UPS I cannot go into specific details fully for you.. but a good test with any 'intelligence module fault' is to re-seat the module and run a self test. If the fault remains then your intelligence module is bad and you will need to acquire a new one to replace the faulty one. This can all be done 'on-line' and you should not have any downtime... assuming there is a redundant intelligence module in the unit which is normally the case. This will clear the fault.

    If you would like more information give me a call: 407.380.9200.

    Message says bettery not connected when it is

    Are you sure that there are not any tabs that are keeping a connection from happening?

    Have you opened the battery case and made sure the connectors have been made?

    Is it possible that you have an old system and the battery is no longer good? If so, you may need to order a new battery.

    My PC is geting switch off when Power flatcutations come,even ups is connected and no back up comes from UPS, after that UPS takes >4 seconds to switch to mains supply.

    A four second transfer time is way too long by at least an order of magnitude. There is no way the power supply in a PC can maintain for that long a time.

    If you are in a real critical environment I would recommend going to a UPS which runs continuously and runs off a battery which is charged whenever utility power is available. That way there is no transfer time.
    These offline units are harder to find however.

    I suspect your UPS system is defective.

    Yesterday and today one of our Smart-UPS 1400 powered off and 2 of our servers along with it. What would cause this?

    may be power to the UPS went off or was not within permissible limits, hence the ups run on batteries until they were completely discharged, the servers went off because they are supplied by this ups. check the power supply to this ups, somebody could be switching it off accidentally. try to sitch the inpu power to the ups to see whether the batteries are okey

    How to take ups in manual bypass mode.

    You definitely want to follow the manual procedure to avoid a possible load loss:

    9.1.4 Transfer from Normal to Bypass Mode
    To transfer the critical load to Bypass mode:
    C A U T I O N
    In Bypass mode, the critical load is not protected from commercial power interruptions and abnormalities.
    1. Press the CONTROLS pushbutton on the main menu bar. The System Controls
    screen appears.
    2. Press the BYPASS pushbutton on the System Controls menu bar.
    The UPS transfers to Bypass mode and the critical load is immediately supplied
    by the bypass source. If the bypass source is not available, the power processor
    remains on and an alarm sounds.
    3. The UPS is now operating in Bypass mode and the BYPASS status indicator is
    The power module (PM) status indicates READY. The system is now on bypass
    and the UPS power processor remains on.

    At this point, you can operate an external bypass switch to get to maintenance bypass if needed.

    Desk top APC UPS ES750 not communicating

    Here is an answer I got from APC when one of my client got the same problem as you did:

    The error message would pop up if the link between the computer and the UPS is weak. I cannot rule out a problem with the cable or the UPS. In order to confirm the same please try the following steps which might help :

    1) Ensure that the USB cable is properly connected to the USB port of the computer.

    2) If the PC was powered on before the UPS, communication will not be achieved until you disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to the host. In this case, you need to disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to establish communication.

    3) Some other software is polling your USB port for another device, thus causing the UPS software to temporarily lose communication with your UPS. If this is the case, you would need to shut down that application.

    4) If you have any other USB devices connected to the PC, disconnect them and then try plugging in the cable.

    If the issue persists, please visit the following link which lists few troubleshooting steps :
