Question about Tripp Lite HT1000UPS (037332125262) UPS System

Open Question

I have a Trip Lite Smart 1000LCD that cannot hold a charge

The LCD shows that the trip lite is fully charged but when the power goes it shuts down within about 5 minutes. Usually it only has a laptop connected to it, but even if it has nothing connected to it, it starts screaming and shuts down within 5 minutes.

The annoying thing is that the LCD shows that the trip lite has a three quarter charge when it shuts down!! If I try to turn it back on, it again shows a three quarter charge, bleeps, and goes dead.

I have tried it with a lamp with a 40watt bulb, a modem, and a TV, SKY, DVD and all result in the same thing, dead within minutes, so it seems that the amount of equipment attached makes little or no difference to the outcome, which tells me it's a software problem and nothing to do with the battery itself.

Do you know of this type of problem, and is there a solution?

I really appreciate any help or advice you can give me on this.
Simon Talon.

    simontalon, You didn't tell me how old is the battery that is inside of the unit. If you prove that battery is NOT the cause of problem, then you might be shipping it to a building a few city blocks west of where the Chicago White Sox play their home games. Can you make accurate DC voltage measurments of the battery when it's connected to a purely resistive load of 2 amps. How many batteries are in the unit? 1 or 2? This really seems like a tired or worn-out battery thing to me. 12fixlouie

SOURCE: No Power when turn on so battery wont charge

Try leaving it off, but plugged into the wall outlet so the batteries can charge up. If they are new, they are probably without a charge. The instructions should indicate how long it needs to charge - probably most of the day.

SOURCE: Tripp Lite OMNI 1000 LCD will not stay on

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.

Ds power problems

mmm not exactly because if you plug the charger back in it will go orange again, so my guess would be that the ds doesnt stay charged for a long while, you can charge the ds properly when it is shut off but it does needs to be charging at least 8 to 10, you want it to last longer, play a game till the power goes just dnt save anything incase the ds shuts down while saving, otherwise it can corrupt the game and possibly the ds

Nintendo DS Lite shuts off randomly.

I'm a certified electronic technician and I must say NDS internal screen ribbon connectors are junk! Basically The ribbon connectors are so sketchy that it is not recommended to ever unclip them, if you do there's a good chance it will ever work again once reconnected due to how the connector pins slightly crimp into the ribbon pads.

When a NDS boots up the the onboard firmware constantly tests the LCD screen connections, if there is a break in the connection the NDS will shut down. If your NDS randomly turns off, fails to boot, or powers of when you move the hinge it is most likely the ribbon (flex film) or ribbon connector has failed. The only option to to replace the affected LCD screen.

Ds is fully charged and won't come on.

Does your Nintendo DS Lite still have a warranty? If so, then send it in to Nintendo for repair.
