Question about HP R1500 XR (204404B31) UPS System
I purchased a rebuilt XR1500R UPS to use in my home theater rack.
It was too loud so I replaced the fans with quieter ones and ran them at half speed, and added 2 additonal fans inside and a third one mounted to the rear, to improve airflow while still keeping the sound down. I'm running the two main fans at 6 volts and the other 3 at the full 12 volts.
After setting this up, I left the machine to run on AC with no load, and when I checked on it about 12 hours later, the keypad had locked up, every indicator light was on, the internal fans were shut off and there was no power available at the outlets.
The only way to get the lights to turn off is to disconnect both AC and the battery, but plugging in the AC or the battery and pushing the on switch causes the lockup again.
At this point, the device is unusable.
Any suggestions for repair would be accepted with much thanks.
SOURCE: With the battery is switch
One of the converters is fried and acts as a short . This in turn activates the onboard protection.
The unit must be dismantled to test and identify the failed parts. Very good knowledge of switching psu's is mandatory to do that so this job should exclusively the domain of a pro.

SOURCE: Dear experts; We have a HP
Is the cable USB or SERIAL?
make sure serial port IRQ is enabled in BIOS
ALso make sure you are using x64 and not x32 drivers for UPS
ALso try getting a USB cable to connect to your UPS device
