UPS does not provide output power to outlets when turned on.
Unit does not provide power to computer connected to it when it is plugged in and turned on (relays sound as if they energize and Green LED indicator turns on) plus battery supported power is 92VAC (non-RMS DVM) only. PCB readings show that the unit provides no power to wired pads when plugged in and turned on however the battery provided 90.2VAC is present at the PCB pads. Is there a schematic available?

So something happened to this apc and the first thing is to replace batteries...
I'm going to guess major circuit board failure.
go to apc site, download Power Chute software and pray there are useful diagnostics.
follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.
Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.
you will need the copy of point of sale. i/e the cash register sales ticket then contact the manufacture, and request the unit to be returned, if that unit is new out of the box, well you will have 100% warranty.
ups is a battery backup unit, so contact the manufacture, direct. lhsjr
1. Four beeps every 30seconds (On Battery LED will be illuminated) This alarm indicates that the Battery PowerSupplied outlets are now supplying battery power as opposed to power from theutility. If the UPS determines that the input utility power is unsafe for yourcomputer equipment, the UPS will switch to battery power. Note: Ifthe power disturbance is brief, you may only hear one or two beeps.
2. Continuous Beeping (On Battery LED will beilluminated) This alarm indicates that a Low Batterycondition has been reached and that the UPS will soon shutdown. 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. Once exhausted, the UPS will shutdown and turnoff its output power to your equipment. If you hear this tone you shouldimmediately shutdown your computer to prevent data loss or corruption.
3. Continuous Beeps for 30 seconds (BackUPS OFFICE 250 and 280 ONLY) This alarm indicates the unit has detected anOverload condition after it has performed a self-test during start-up.
4. Continuous Two-Tone Beep This alarm indicates a severe Overload wasdetected while the unit was on-battery operation. This tone will continue tosound until the unit shuts down.
5. Continuous Tone (On Battery LED will beflashing) This alarm indicates that the battery-poweredoutlets are overloaded.
6. Continuous Tone (On Line and On BatteryLEDs flashing) Back UPS OFFICE 350,400, and 500 ONLY This alarm indicates that an internal UPS faulthas occurred.
I am not sure on the outlets on the back of this unit.
It is likely that the outlets on the back of the (UPS) are labeled, some battery backup (UPS) and the rest are surge protection only (no UPS).
Of the 3 UPS units I have, on each unit, only about half of the outlets give UPS protection.
The rest are surge protection.
Let me know it this helps you. Post your questions as a comment or reply and I'll be notified.
the unit needs to be plugged in all the time. the unit is or should be fully automatic. higher priced units have a usb cord so you can check their status right on the computer, does your ups have a usb outlet? you might want to take it up to a computer store and buy a usb cable and then you can control your UPS with your computer. manually turning the UPS on and off shouldnt hurt anything.
The Back-UPS is fairly straight-forward. The 9-pin connector (at the top of the back) is a serial port (RS-232) for the UPS data (when connected to a computer it will shut down the computer safely during a power outage). The next plugs are RJ-11 telephone jacks; the cord from the jack (wall) goes in on the left (some models have RJ-45 for network protection). The battery protected outlets are the three surrounded by black paint. The other three provide surge-protection only. Do not plug items like printers and scanners into the outlets that provide battery protection.
