Replaced Battery Issue

I replaced the battery in my UPS (APC 750), the battery indicator shows full power but the status shows RED. Any ideas? Here is a snapshot of the problem. The status light had been green for several months after it's replacement. Any suggestions?

Re: Replaced Battery Issue

Try removing and reconnecting the batteries, make sure they have a tight fit with the contacts inside...use pliers if you need to

it is possible one of the batteries has gone bad, "defective"
I had this happen 1 time, with a defective battery after a few weeks in the UPS

good luck
thanks for rating

Why is my pac chirping?

If your UPS chirps repeatedly, and is connected to power, it generally indicates a failing battery(s). Your UPS's LED indicator which shows the status of the battery may not accurately indicate this. Typically UPS batteries don't last more than 3 years.

Apc beeping twice every 2 seconds

The battery inside the APC is "weak", and the "beep" is telling you to replace the battery inside the APC, or, maybe cheaper, to buy a new APC.

The fault indicator means that there is a fault in the circuitry of the UPS. It could be the control board or another part of the system. (If the batteries were bad, you would see the Replace Battery light illuminate.) If the SURT3000XL is under warranty, contact APC. The standard warranty period is 2 years for repair/replacement. Note: you'll probably have to pay for the shipping of the unit. If the unit is out of warranty, replace it with a new UPS.

I hope this helps.

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.

APC UPS 1500 w/full load forces immediate reboot at pwr failure


With a 980watt load the run time is only 7 minutes on a brand new battery. If you have the system on full load your run time will be much less and it has likely damaged the battery. here is the APC web site page for your model. If you are running that much equipment I think you need either a bigger UPS or another 1500 and spread the load out.
