    Be aware.



    My Tripp LIte Omni 1000 LCD almost caught on fire.

    I had been experiencing a spike in my power bill to the tune of 1000 Watts an hour for everything running - 24x7. I started the survey of all my equipment; TV 162 Watts; Fridge 228, etc. but none of these devices are on all day and night. I finally mapped out all the outlets and lights and was about to begin the survey. Other than the flickering lights, one big clue was that my TL's lcd was displaying a spike in voltage DOWN to 95 or so, the relay would click, etc.



    I decided to begin my survey and use my second TL to help me see which circuit was faulty. When I looked at the LCD, it was blank. I pushed the ON button and all the devices plugged in went OFF and then I saw smoke coming out of the back. I quickly unplugged everything and then watched my meter. When this UPS was plugged in, there was about 1000W used per hour; I monitored it for 10 hours; 4000W were used (total).



    So... not only was it a fire hazard, but it sucked up 600W or so an hour.

Only one side of the outlets work...


From the User Manual:

“OVERLOAD/CHECK BATTERY” LED: this red LED lights continuously after a self-test to
indicate the capacity of the battery-supported outlets has been exceeded. To clear the overload, unplug some of your equipment from the battery-supported outlets; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self-Test. If the UPS continues to detect an overload, remove more equipment and repeat the self test until successful.

CAUTION! Any overload that is not corrected by the user immediately following a self-test may cause the UPS to shut down and cease supplying output power in the event of a blackout or brownout.

The LED flashes to indicate the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. If the LED flashes (and a continuous alarm sounds) during a prolonged blackout or brownout, the UPS’s batteries are nearly out of power; you should save files and shut down your equipment immediately.

If the LED flashes following a UPS self-test (after the UPS is turned ON), it may indicate that the battery needs to be replaced. Allow the UPS to recharge continuously for 12 hours; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self Test.

If the LED continues to flash, contact Tripp Lite for service. Should your UPS require battery replacement, visit Tripp Lite on the web at www.tripplite.com/support/battery/index.cfm to locate the specific replacement battery for your UPS.

Hope this helps!

Hello! I'm from Riyadh Saudi Arabia. I've left on my Tripp Lite UPS 1000 just last night. When I came in my office in the morning, my desktop computer including my computer server was OFF. I supprised that...


Unplug the computer. Then run the UPS self-test and the unit will display whether it finds an overload fault, whether the battery needs to be charged or replaced.
Here are the instructions (copied from the User Manual):
Turn UPS on: Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.

Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until alarm beeps several times).

The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound.

If the fault icon remains lit, the battery-supplied outlets are overloaded. Unplug powered devices until you remove the overload.

If the "Replace" icon remains lit and alarm continues to sound, the UPS batteries need to be recharged or replaced. Allow UPS to charge for 24 hours and repeat self-test.

Tone alarm goes off and flashes "overload" and on the back "building wireing fault" is lit up


The "Overload" light and alarm is to tell you that the devices connected to the UPS are drawing more current than the UPS can safely provide with battery backup. You should disconnect a few items, and the alarm and overload light will turn off. The "Building wiring fault" light on the back is to tell you that there's no proper ground wire inside the wall outlet that you're using. These two problems are not related to each other.

Strange noise comes out from the ups after a power cut

Belkin UPS F6C800 Problem


Hello,

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to Shutdown of UPS whenever there is a Power Surge. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.


I see that you are using


Generally, the issue happens if you are not using the UPS as per Manufacturer specifications or if it is overloaded frequently then UPS  shutdowns


To isolate the issue, I recommend you to check and go through below information.

If you see ON BATTERY a Yellow LED OR Flashing Yellow
LED with Audible Alarm (Beeping) then it means this condition for the On-Battery LED can indicate 1of 2 problems: They are:

1. The UPS is on battery backup and an intermittent audible alarm is on. The UPS will begin shutdown procedure.

2. Battery is low. The UPS will sta rt shut down. The buzzer sounds an audible alarm .


if you see a Solid Red on your UPS , then it means that UPS is either fault or overload.  It happens if there is a issue with UPS. The LED will be lit continuously and the unit will sound an audiable alarm for 10 seconds. Other cause could be with Battery is weak or Bad, the Battery needs to be replaced under this condition.

If you use a Flashing Red LED, then it means that battery is trying to give more power than it should. It happens then UPS is overloaded.

Let me tell you,,,,

Only data sensitive equipment such as a computer, monitor and external drive should be plugged into these outlets. Battery power is automatically

provided in case of a power outage. Power (AC or battery) is not supplied to these outlets when the UPS is switched off. (Do not plug surge protectors or power strips into the battery back up outlets).

 Most Important factor that effects the issue is that,
 

Caution: Never connect a laser printer or scanner to the backup outlets of UPS with other computer equipment. A laser printer or scanner draws significantly more power when in use than when idle. This may overload the UPS.


And caused the UPS to shutdown whenever there is Power Surge

To isolate the issue further, let me tell you the way where you can test the UPS if it is fine or not.

1. Charge the UPS for around 4 hours, and try below steps.

  

To Conduct a Self Test

 

Use the self-test to verify both the operation of the UPS and the condition of the battery. In normal utility power, push the On/Off/Test

button less than 2 seconds and the UPS performs a self-test function. During the self-test, the UPS operates in back-up mode.

Note! During the self-test, the UPS briefly operates on- battery backup power (the on-battery LED comes on). If the UPS passes

the self -test, it returns to on-line operation. If the UPS fails the self-test, it immediately returns to on-line operation and lights the replace battery LED. The loads are not affected. Recharge the battery overnight and perform the self- test again. If the replace battery LED is still on, the battery will need to replaced.

 

This should resolve the issue for you.

 

 If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com . I'll be glad to help you.

 

Bye.
