You have a brand new set of batteries with a bad UPS. Sorry to tell you that. You might have waited too long to replace your battery. What I mean, if you battery can not fully charge up, the inverter will try and keep charging it until it burns out. Then you buy a battery and you are now stuck with it.

You need a new UPS, may I suggest you get a bigger one....I have a 800VA with your name in it for only $80.00 plus shipping.

That is cheaper then what you are going to find. Keep it in mind also that APC is no a realy quality product either. Great marketing but poor support. Trust me that BE 500 is disposable.

My ups won't stop beeping


The beeping on your ups is the sound of an alarm it will come on when starting up due to slow start circuit, there are a reset switch on the front display press once and beep will despair.

Good you tried new batteries. There is a reset, but it wipes the programming out. It does nothing for the radio. Still think you have a power issue. Clean the battery contacts with alcohol and a light sanding with a high grit sandpaper, like 300 or better 600. Then clean them again with alcohol. Post your results!

APC 500 beeps all the time battery tests good


It could be over loaded or too hot. Unplug everything and see if it keeps beeping. Or you can reset the logic. to do that turn off the UPS. Unplug from the wall. Disconnect the batteries. Push the on button. The LED's may flash. This is the logic reset. Put it back together and all should be good.

I cant charge mine. it keeps making a beep


Two possibilities come to mind. 1) The battery has failed and can't be charged fully (usually one cell fails and it won't charge fully). I've diagnosed this by removing the battery and trying to charge it with a variable power supply. You can try replacing the battery.
2) The UPS itself is faulty and can't charge/maintain the battery. The entire unit should be replaced.

I recommend solution 2. I had the 725VA in this consumer UPS line and when I replaced the battery, the UPS could not keep the battery charged with any load on the unit.

Check your warranty, though. The APC warranty is for 2 years on this model.

I hope this helps.

Any schematics available for a APC Back-UPS Pro 650PNP? I installed a new battery (yes correct polarity) and smelled a little smoke. It was unplugged during the battery swap. I took the cover off but...


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.

Minuteman Pro320 beeping


If the UPS has the serial or USB cable attached to a computer of any kind, you can use the UPS management software to disable the alarm until you can replace the battery. You should schedule the battery replacement for after hours just to be safe. If your phone system has redundant power supplies or two power cords, you can plug the system into wall power to replace the battery and then go back to battery power when you're done.
