Belkin F6C120 UPS problem, won't test

Hi,

I am having problme with this UPS. I tried to run both the bulldog test and the power button test but nothing happens. It appears that the battery is not charging but given the fact that the test won't even run should I bother replacing the batteries or should I replace the whole thing?

Thanks,
Patrick

Check the manufacturer's web site for upgraded software on your UPS. This sounds more like a software problem.

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.

When batteries discharge during ac power it could indicate charger failure or micro failure or some other wierdness. makers do not release cd info. The best thing is.. buy another one as they can be very difficult to repair and of course they are dangerous, batteries are always live, waiting to bite you. I have worked on and repaired such circuits as the AP 200 series resonant converter and selling and hiring UPS for a long time. Beyond the simple easy checks youhave done the time it takes to understand how they work can better be used.

Belkin f6c750-avr repair / Testing


You could be correct on the transformer. I'm kinda leaning towards a bad cell in the battery. Sounds like it will need replacing.

Looking to silence the low battery alarm on a belkin F6C120 but not the overload/fault... when power goes out, the constant beeping from several of these makes staff go crazy.... Thanks.


Why not replace the speakers/buzzers with Ultra Bright LEDS with an appropriate resistor in line

That way they get to see a fault and keep their cool

Belkin UPS F6C800 Problem


Hello,

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to Shutdown of UPS whenever there is a Power Surge. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.


I see that you are using


Generally, the issue happens if you are not using the UPS as per Manufacturer specifications or if it is overloaded frequently then UPS  shutdowns


To isolate the issue, I recommend you to check and go through below information.

If you see ON BATTERY a Yellow LED OR Flashing Yellow
LED with Audible Alarm (Beeping) then it means this condition for the On-Battery LED can indicate 1of 2 problems: They are:

1. The UPS is on battery backup and an intermittent audible alarm is on. The UPS will begin shutdown procedure.

2. Battery is low. The UPS will sta rt shut down. The buzzer sounds an audible alarm .


if you see a Solid Red on your UPS , then it means that UPS is either fault or overload.  It happens if there is a issue with UPS. The LED will be lit continuously and the unit will sound an audiable alarm for 10 seconds. Other cause could be with Battery is weak or Bad, the Battery needs to be replaced under this condition.

If you use a Flashing Red LED, then it means that battery is trying to give more power than it should. It happens then UPS is overloaded.

Let me tell you,,,,

Only data sensitive equipment such as a computer, monitor and external drive should be plugged into these outlets. Battery power is automatically

provided in case of a power outage. Power (AC or battery) is not supplied to these outlets when the UPS is switched off. (Do not plug surge protectors or power strips into the battery back up outlets).

 Most Important factor that effects the issue is that,
 

Caution: Never connect a laser printer or scanner to the backup outlets of UPS with other computer equipment. A laser printer or scanner draws significantly more power when in use than when idle. This may overload the UPS.


And caused the UPS to shutdown whenever there is Power Surge

To isolate the issue further, let me tell you the way where you can test the UPS if it is fine or not.

1. Charge the UPS for around 4 hours, and try below steps.

  

To Conduct a Self Test

 

Use the self-test to verify both the operation of the UPS and the condition of the battery. In normal utility power, push the On/Off/Test

button less than 2 seconds and the UPS performs a self-test function. During the self-test, the UPS operates in back-up mode.

Note! During the self-test, the UPS briefly operates on- battery backup power (the on-battery LED comes on). If the UPS passes

the self -test, it returns to on-line operation. If the UPS fails the self-test, it immediately returns to on-line operation and lights the replace battery LED. The loads are not affected. Recharge the battery overnight and perform the self- test again. If the replace battery LED is still on, the battery will need to replaced.

 

This should resolve the issue for you.

 

 If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com . I'll be glad to help you.

 

Bye.

Need help diagnosing dead UPS


Very likely, "would this also explain why none of the indicator leds are working?"...the dead batteries are your problem. you can try this test, since you had it opened: 1.) disconnect internal batteries, label the wires by terminal location. 2.) connect (2) 12 volt car batteries to same exact wires that you just disconnected, noting correct polarity. 3.) power up UPS. if everything ok, then buy 2 replacement batteries for UPS. if not ok, buy new UPS after through search inside UPS reveals no blown fuses or other faults including poor wire connections.
