UPS not working properly. Belkin 1500 (f6c1500-tw-rk). Red light on full time .. along with green. System has no 'on battery' time with minimal load...not even 1 min...not 10 secs. The batteries can not be that shot unless the charger was bad. Any suggestions? Had a similar problem with a APC and just replaced it. Any ideas??? Thanks -

    Same problem here with new setup.

    Same problem with a an F6C1100-UNV with brand new batteries measuring 26.5V. Charger puts out 27.2V, so I don't think it's a charging issue. Under no load, if I pull the plug, the unit beeps, the yellow inverting light comes on for half a second or so, then all lights turn off. All the while, the battery remains at >26.5V. There are two 12V batteries in this UPS.

12v 7ah batteries have a 2-4 year life span.. most websites claim about 260 deep cycle dis/recharges although ymmv.

Make absolutely sure you've re-wired up the ups the way it should be (ie in series-- not parallel).they are in series, not parallel. ie, each cell produces 12 v so
wire the two so that the pair produces 24 v, the (-) terminal of the
first cell to the (-) connection in the unit, the (+) terminal of the
first cell to the (-) terminal of the second, and the (+) terminal of
the second cell to the (+) connection in the unit.

Or in other words:
+ of unit to + of top battery
- of unit to - of bottom battery
then connect + of bottom battery to - of top battery.. this completes a series circuit with both batteries.

I can't tell if the battery needs to be replaced in our Belkin 900. Should the green indicator on the front be completely lit up? Only one seems to be.

Turn on your UPS by pressing and holding the On/Off/Test
button for approximately 2 seconds until the “ON LINE” Green LED
comes on. Pushing the On button less than 2 seconds is a test function.

Simple test: plug a light into one of the battery backup outlets. Then unplug unit. If the light stays on then it's working and the battery is ok.

Have brand new APC 900 UPS and when plugged in, both green & yellow indicator lights flash. Non-stop. Left unit plugged in for 18 hours (off) to charge battery as info sheet suggested, but lights still...


Nope! The internal battery is not plugged-in correctly. Unplug the APC unit and open the access door to the battery (it is not dangerous to do).
Re-seat the two wire clips (red & black) to the battery. The positive post has a red mark on it.
Close it up and charge for a few hours before using.

If the symptoms continue, return unit to store.

Belkin 1500va (uses 2 - 12v 7ah batteries)


check out this picture, it shows the 2 batteries wired up.

Notice that the batteries are flipped opposite of each other.
So from left to right its: bottom red, bottom black, top black, top red

http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=1092&page=2

Between the 2 batteries there is 1 red to black connection.
Then black to black-wire to circuit board
and red to red-wire to circuit board.

My computer won't boot and the CyberPower 825 AVR makes a continuous sound.


It sounds as though the UPS is not receiving power. Check that it's cable is properly plugged into the wall. Also verify that it's internal ground fault interrupter has not tripped, it's usually a little red button on the back of the unit, it should be pressed in and should stay that way, if it pops out then there is a problem with the ground of your electrical outlet. Also check that the breaker for that electrical has not tripped at your fuse box.

Since the UPS is not receiving power the batteries have discharged and that is why your computer cannot start, there is not enough juice from the UPS to boot it. That is also why it is making a noise as most UPS's sound an alarm to indicate that they are not connected to power.

There is a chance that the batteries in your UPS have gone bad or that something has become faulty in your UPS. Try plugging your computer and monitor directly to the wall bypassing the UPS to see if they work fine.

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

If you did not take a lighting hit everything should be OK. Plug a light or another electircal device in to make sure each socket works. If not you have a problem I recommend to replace UPS. Your UPS should show a low battery LED. Here is a link for your manual for your model UPS. If you need any more help let me know?
