It means it has an internal fault. if still under warranty period, just call APC and ask for replacement. if it out of warranty bring it to service center or better if you have to buy a new one because as far as i am concerned repair cost of this unit is much expensive than a new unit

After a power outage, the alarm keeps sounding. I see others have had this problem but I can't find the solution. Help


The alarm is sounding because you have a low DC Buss. The alarm will go alarm will go away once the DC buss is at the min. threshold. Your batteries may be getting weak. Think about replacing

Continuous Beeping (theamber On Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the UPS has reached aLow Battery condition and will soon shutdown. The UPS can only operate onbattery for a limited amount of time. In order to protect the unit's batteriesfrom discharging too much, the UPS will shutdown and turn off its output. Towarn you that the unit will soon shutdown, the UPS will sound this alarm 2minutes before actual shutdown. With optional Powerchute Plus software, 2minutes can be changed to 5, 7, or 10 minutes to give you more of a warning ofimpending shutdown. If you hear this tone, you should immediately gracefullyshutdown your operating system to prevent data loss or corruption.
Note:This graceful shutdown will occur automatically if Powerchute PLUS software isbeing used.

Constant, Solid Tone (the red Overload LEDwill be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the UPS has detectedan Overload condition. If this alarm is sounded, try removing non-essentialequipment. The alarm will remain until the load is reduced. To determine ifyour UPS is capable of handling the equipment you want to protect, visit APC'sSizing Guide at www.apcc.com/sizing.

Continuous Beeps for One Minute; RepeatedEvery 5 Hours (Replace Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the UPS has failed itsSelf-Test of the battery. The unit will continue to sound this alarm until theunit passes the test.

If it fails and the unit is still in-warranty (twoyears from date of purchase), then contact APC. If the unit fails and its outof warranty, then order a replacement battey cartridge through your reseller,distributor, or from APC's web site.

If the device was still under warranty, you should call APC support and ask to send it in for repairs or replacement. Just keep politely asking, and ask to talk to their superior whenever they say it isn't possible and eventually you will get an RMA ticket/number.
If the device is not under warranty, you might be able to convince APC to service the device for a fee.

My APC back-ups es500 is keep on flashing in orange and green having the beep sound, whe it is on. It has been used for nearly 3 years. What would be the problem...?


Hello,

Probably the battery is drained. You should charge it first. And if the problem still persist, it could be that the UPS battery needs replacement.
