Belkin ups not working properly.... green and RED light on ...indicates bad battery. But unit not more than 1 yr old, no battery time at all when plug pulled...not enen i min on (desk to an d monitor
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 -

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.

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.
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.
look around the box and nottify the screw point open these screw and look for red and black cables that indicate the polarity of positive and negative, make sure the positive goes to it position as well as the negative on the new batteries.
