Question about APC Back-UPS ES 350 - UPS ( external ) - 350 VA - UPS battery lead acid - 6 output connector(s) (NEWITEM13161548) UPS System

1 Answer

APC ES-350 won't turn on; all I see is a blinking light.

My APC Back UPS ES-350 was working fine last night when I turned it off.  This morning, I tried to turn it on, and all I got was a flashing light.
In another plug in the same outlet, I had had my iPod plugged in, charging, but I unplugged it roughly as I was turning on the UPS.
Now I can't use anything plugged into the battery power side, but everything in the surge-only side works.  Is there any way I can fix this problem without having to buy a new UPS?
Thanks!

    I see the circuit breaker, but it's level with the edge of the casing around it, which apparently means it's not tripped.  Pressing it did nothing.


    Holding the power switch for 15 seconds did turn on the light at first, but, as usual, it started flashing. There was no other noise than the normal power on one.


    Thanks for helping, skipsinclair!

    Also, I believe it's around 3 years old. (I have a registration printout from June '06.)

Try looking for a small circuit breaker on the side that says "press to reset" - you could have tripped it accidentally when you unplugged the iPod.  Also, try pressing and holding the UPS power switch for 10-15 seconds.  That should force a power on as well.

How can you tell if the system is bad on apc back ups es 650


plug something (other then a computer)into it, turn the gadget on, then unplug the UPS. If the gadget continues active the UPS is OK. Generally after you have punched every button (circuit breakers). After that put a Volt/Ohm meter on the batteries (and the charging wires to check the charging curcuit is OK.

Yes there are replaceable batteries but if yours is only 6 months old and was new this should not be the problem. That said, batteries only have a certain lifespan from the date of manufacture. If it sat on a shelf for a long time before it was sold the battery could be junk.

Is the tone continuous? If so this is the overload alarm.

What does it mean by the beep sound from the UPS ES 350 unit?


Ok, 3-4 years is a much as you can expect from an ups battery so replacement is indicated. The beeps are letting you know the battery is not able to keep up with demand. So either you have recently added to the system or the battery/s failing.

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

APC external Backup battery is not working plz


It may just need a new battery. The UPS will do a self test on the battery when you turn it on. It may have tried to read the battery and the result came back as "failed". The batteries last about 3-5 years, even less if you live in an area with bad power. The batteries are very easy to change. You can buy replacements at www.batteryinternational.com/apc-backups-es-be350es-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

APC ES350 strange noise


My solution was to unplug everything, hit the reset button, and then power the unit back up. The problem I found to be that I had my laser printer connected to the "surge + battery" side, and for some reason no laser printer can be connected to it.
