This is typically caused by software that manages an uninterrupable power supply (aka UPS). Simply put, this is a battery that the server plugs into to so the server can run for a short time when there is a power outage.

UPS devices frequently come with software to communicate with the server so it knows when it is on battery. When the server is notified that it is on battery it will provide warning messages like the one you described. Some will even pass the notice to all computers connected to the server to make sure no work is lost.

One of the most popular programs is APC PowerChute. I would look for this program or other programs that have the words "UPS" and/or "power" in their name to find the cause.

I hope this helps.

How I change the battery


What is year--make--model? You can't get the battery in or out? Also, with some vehicles, you may be ahead to use a memory saver that plugs into cigar lighter or power outlet, to help keep some memory systems alive if you have to disconnect battery.

Some systems if they lose memory it can cause problems.

Look for any loose contacts in power outlet. Try it on a different power outlet. Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

It is going on protection mode. Change the power outlet to some other that works. Try changing the input device to something that works. If it does not work, try switching off the TV manually, remove the plug after switching off the power outlet, wait for 48 hours and retry. If it does not work even then, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

Monitor keeps going off and then it will eventually come back, but does it many times a day


Do you use some sort of battery back up on your PC. It could be that you are losing power to the outlet on which the PC is connected. Also, ensure that the outlet is not "switched" - meaning it is not controlled with a light switch or dimmer of some sort.

No power


If your radio is powered by batteries, try changing the batteries. If your battery needs to be charged, try that too. If your radio is powered by an alternating current (AC) cable, make sure the plug is plugged into the outlet correctly and that the outlet is not deteriorated. If the outlet that you're plugging the radio into is controlled by a switch, make sure that switch is turned on. If all of that doesn't work, it may be that the batteries contacts are deteriorated or a cold solder joint is causing bad contact with the power supply.

Battery Depleted


Are you able to run the laptop with no battery installed but the power cable plugged in? If not, there's a good chance your power jack on your laptop has broken (or almost broken) and will need to be replaced or the power adapter isn't working.

If it does run, your battery is probably bad and can't take any charge. It will need to be replaced.

Toshiba Satellite 1405 - Power problem


Hi Don

Although symptom is showing that AC Adaptor is not working as its not providing power to the unit. I will suggest you to perform some basic troubleshooting steps. Check if outlet is working if not check with known working outlet. If you have a multimeter you can the output of the AC adaptor.

Also you can perform full power cycle and component discharge. Take the battery out and disconnect the AC adaptor press the power button and hold about 7 seconds. After that put the AC adaptor in and test again.

If issue persist take to nearest Service center check with known working AC adaptor. After that I believe you will figure out the best solution.

Good Luck
