My APC Smart-UPS 1500 was blinking red light- replace battery. ( and it was not holding any power without AC) So I put a new battery in today, pushed Test as per instructions (to reset) but nothing happened... still blinking same light and bipping as before, like I have replaced the battery. Any suggestions please? Thanks

yeppers...those APC units sometimes kick the monitoring software. sometimes you need to unhook the connection cables(like a reset) so that the firmware can 'unlock' which can cause that christmas tree effect on the panel lights.

SOURCE: apc ups flashes red light to replace battery, but battery is new

i think by replacing the battery has not been the solution to the problem

u need to check the battery charging voltage when turned ON with main electricity, if no voltage present from charger, there is no question of battery getting charged and also once the battery is down with charge it may not re charge hence the indicator and alarm.
recomended to nearest service centre

ok how long you brought the ups and how long you had not start the the ups usaully ups is power dead change the battery and try to power up it should work be sure that all connection is connect properly before power up the ups.. if the ups doest work that will be the mainboard problem you hav to call for vedor to repair the unit.. yes these fuse for the ups but it unlikely to be blown so should worry of the fuse it self.. change of battery come with different spefc for the ups.. eg su3000rmi3u, sua3000rmi3u, su3000rmxl3u --- battery replacement is 8 pcs of 12v 7ah. sua3000rmi2u-- 6 pcs of 12v 7ah or 8 pcs 12v 5ah. su3000rminet-- 4 pcs 12v 17ah,

SOURCE: APC Smart UPS 1500 will not start.

It could be that the cable to the front-panel got damaged during the battery replacement.  After all these years you would think APC would improve that aspect of their design.  All I can suggest is inspecting the cable and where it connects to the front panel.

Is red light on for overload or for battery?
If on overload, try reducing the load on the UPS. If red light on overload persists buy a new UPS (overload fault hard to repair).

Red light on battery - replace the batteries.

Red light on boost or buck, may mean that the nominal voltage of ups and the limits need to be changed/corrected.

SUA3000RMI2U won't carry load


Did you run this test without AC input?
Also what happens when you cut off the AC mains without any load connected to it? Will the UPS continue to run or does it switch off as well?

Red light on front is lit up- beeping- assume it has lost its battery power


You are assuming right. With the UPS on push and hold the on button for 3 seconds. This will start a self test. If the UPS dies then replace batteries

Smart UPS 1500 - battery level green lights blink on and off


You need to run recalibration on the unit.  The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB).  If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC.  It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future.  I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration.  By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing.  Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing).  This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.
