Question about Cybernet Systems CyberPower 1100AVR (obcps1100avr1) UPS System

3 Answers

Suddenly everything lost power and the CPS1100AVR UPS unit started beeping and clicking while switching back-and-forth from 'powered' to 'battery'. Everything connected powered off, then on, then off,

This morning, while doing nothing special on the PC, suddenly it powered down and I could hear the UPS intermittently beeping and clicking. Anything not plugged into the UPS remained powered up, meaning there was no power outage. Also connected to the UPS is a couple of external eSATA drives which I could hear repeatedly powering up, then losing power... so I immediately switched them off. The UPS was switching back and forth from Power(green light (AC)) to Battery (orange light (DC)). Just like it does when I'm having a power outage problem, except it was repeating the cycle. Normally, I'd expect whatever is connected to the UPS to stay powered up either way, but that wasn't the case today. I've owned the unit about 3 years. So, is it dead? If the problem is the batteries, are they serviceable? BTW, I have everything disconnected from the unit while it remains plugged in and charging. I'll check it later today to see if the batteries are holding any charge. It doesn't click back-and-forth when there is nothing plugged in and pulling power. Thanks.

    I have my Belkin 1200VA UPS plugged into the same outlet now. Everything is up and running.
    Do you have any ideas as to what exactly may be wrong with the Cyberpower UPS?
    Do you know if the batteries are removable/serviceable?

    Thanks.

Most UPS's will check the voltage of the battery periodically when the UPS is running and all is well with the AC power. If the test returns a "fail" on the voltage of the battery, many UPS's will start acting strange. It sounds like this may be the case with yours. The batteries can be changed by removing the access door on the bottom of the unit. A phillip screw holds it in. Here's a link to the battery set: http://www.batteryinternational.com/cyber-power-cps1100avr-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

Its the batteries. Have the same model, and both times the batteries got weak it did the same thing. Just came home to find it doing it again today, not going to put a 3rd set of batts in it. Seems like a strange way for them to fail (I'd prefer it just cut the power totally, the cycling can't be good for the connecting equipment) but I can tell you its the batts, replace them and it'll work like new for a few yrs again.

You should try pluging a lamp into the same outlet the ups was in to see if the lamp works correctly. If the lamp is ok most likly the UPS is toast.

    It is unlikely that the batteries are the cause of your problem, most UPS’s will continue to operate even when the batteries are shot they just alarm. Either you had over loaded the UPS or it has failed. A new one may be the best option. The batteries in the 1100AVR are replicable but I could find no reference to your problem in the manual.

  • Bob May 24, 2009

    The user manual is available on the Cyberpower website. And it tells how to replace the batteries. Normally you can find this type of battery for around $20 from a battery supply house.

Once the UPStransfers to On Battery operation, it can only stay on battery for a limitedamount of time. The UPS will sound this alarm about two minutes before thebatteries are totally exhausted.

Tip

Computer beeps


If you try to power on your computer and nothing happens but a bunch of beeps there is something you can do. The beeps actually mean something. To make sure you can hear the beeps check in the bios options. If there is an option for a silent boot you won't hear any beeps. If you hear one beep every time your computer starts then you don't have to worry about this.

If you want to check this setting refer to my other tip on how to enter bios and change boot settings.

If you try to boot your computer and nothing shows up on your monitor do these steps first.
1-Check all your cables in the back of the computer.
2-check your power source and power cord to the monitor
3-try another monitor if possible
4-If on a power bar try to turn off the power bar and reset the breaker

If you try to boot your computer and nothing happens and you hear beeps look at this website. The beeps you hear are actually telling you what is wrong. Look at the website by clocking on the link below and click on the computer beep codes link. If you want to scroll down past the link it will show you bios codes to enter the bios in your computer

The little box started beeping - the green light is still on - now the beeping has stopped (by itself - I did nothing) Do I need to do anything?


You may have had a power fluctuation and it was just letting you know about the problem. Did you have any flickering lights or anything else weird at the time? Also, one or more of the devices may have put a large amperage draw on the unit at that particular time. UPS's will let you know if the load is too much.

Why does battery beep and tells me its on battery power when it's stil plugged to wall. and i have a good power source


Usually that indicates a low battery charge or bad battery. Make sure you do not have the battery backup side overloaded with too many devices. Do not plug inductive loads with motors or heating elements into the backup. Turn the device off and unplug anything that is plugged into the bachup. Plug the battery backup into the wall with nothing attached and turn on. Wait 10-15 minutes. this will charge the battery. If beeping continues after this with nothing attached, you likely need a new battery or the control/monitoring system is bad. If beeps stop, reinstall and do not attach more wattage than the unit can suppluy

The unit beeps


I am getting these directly from the user manual (available here: http://www.apcmedia.com/salestools/ASTE-6Z7VAQ_R3_EN.pdf)

Issue: On Battery - UPS is supplying battery power to the load connected to the Battery outlets.

Visual Indication: Power On LED - ON (off during beep)

Audible Indication: Beeping 4 times every 30 seconds

Stops When: UPS transfers back to Power On operation, or when UPS is turned off.

- OR -

Issue: Sleep Mode - During On Battery operation the battery power has been completely exhausted and the UPS is waiting for utility
power to return to normal.

Visual Indication: None

Audible Indication: Beeping once every 4 seconds

Stops When: Utility power is restored, or if utility power is not
restored within 32 seconds, or the UPS is turned off.


All other issues are CONSTANT tones, which you did not specify, or there are no audible tones associated with it.

hi, i don't have the schematic but, i think if you connected the batteries okay and had switched off the machine then it should work. when switching on there are two sounds that come, first its a beep, if you release the ON SWITCH the UPS will just do a self test then shutdown. to switch ON the UPS completely don't release the on button until you hear a second beep, if you release the ON switch when this beep is on, then the UPS will be ON completely.

Has started to beep whenever items plugged into


If it's more than 3 years old, you probably need new batteries.

If the beep started after plugging anything additional into the UPS, you may be in an overload state, and the beep is telling you that it's choosing to beep and not function as intended rather than smoking itself. Try unplugging a piece or two from it and see if the beep goes away. If not, probably just you're batteries giving out due to old age, they'll only give you 3-5 years.

Dell Dimension Shut Down


Hi

You query suggest you have Dell Dimension 3000. Dell Dimension 3000 is a desktop PC and does not have a battery backup by itself.

I am assuming the battery backup you are referring to is a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). If this is correct then by your description of the issues, the UPS may be faulty (indicated by the Red light and beeping).

Disconnect the computer's power cord from the UPS and connect it to a wall power outlet to confirm or rule out the UPS as the offending device.

If this does not help reply with more info

Laptop will not come on . it started all of a sudden.


when you connect to the raw power, do you hear any beeps ? Is there a sequence ? Long beeps / short beeps ? Anything of this sort could mean a issue wiht the internal hardware.

If there are no beeps, then I think its with the power itself. Could be the power cord .

Hope this helps
