Question about APC Computers & Internet

I have a BX1300G APC UPS. It will not turn on. If plugged in a socket the surge only outlets work fine. Took the fully charged battery from my BX1500G out and tried it in the 1300, still will not turn on. What now ? I'm lost. Help !

    No light, no power. Wall socket is good, triple checked it. Found a circuit breaker reset on back, does nothing.



    Does make a small buzzing noise if you put your ear to it, when plugged in.

Yes that means the inverter board is faulty. some component must be out of order probably a capacitor. inverter board is the one that converts your inserted battery DC power to AC which your system is using. you can either replace it or take to a service center and also if technical and with the right tools ( multimeter), identify the faulty component and replace it.

Battery or no, the Power light should come on when you plug it in. Unless the wall socket does not have power. Please check. And when you connect the battery the red On Battery light should come on power or no power. Most likely, it is the wall socket that the plug is not connecting to and thus no power to the UPS.
Also there is an On Off switch at the back that has to be turned on to start the UPS. If it is Off then the UPS is dead. Try to locate it.

Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    Three out of the five plugs do not work have stopped working.


    The APC UPS will power the non-battery (label something like surge only) with the power button turned off. If the outlets that are not powering up are labeled Battery/Surge, you need to turn on the UPS. There should be a button you depress to turn the system on.

    Also if this is a new UPS, you will need to hook up the battery for this to work. Open the bottom of the unit and you will find the battery and plugs.

    I want to use the apc 650 pro to run on my 900 watt generator.I will be pulling about 400 watts,will this smooth out the voltage from my generator to my radio? Is there anything I must do to use the apc in...


    the battery back-up will smooth out the voltage, You will definitely need a battery in or else it will beep nonstop and drive you batty! the APC should have surge protected outlets already built into it. And since you will be using it outside of a computer environment, im guessing on a worksite, there will be nothing extra you need to do besides plugging it in. I would suggest plugging it into a stable voltage for the first hour or so to allow it to charge the battery.

    APC ES-350 won't turn on; all I see is a blinking light.


    Try looking for a small circuit breaker on the side that says "press to reset" - you could have tripped it accidentally when you unplugged the iPod.  Also, try pressing and holding the UPS power switch for 10-15 seconds.  That should force a power on as well.

    APC Backup UPS Model # BK200C salvageable?


    Yes, but the battery may not be any good, though, and trying to charge it may damage the charger. A new battery is about $20. The surge suppressor will still work without the battery as long as it is connected to a properly grounded 3-wire circuit. If you decide to take a chance and charge the old battery, take precautions like keeping a watch on it should it explode or catch fire. Not trying to scare you, just looking at worst case scenario.

    Plugging an UPS into a surge arrester or plugging in a surge arrester into the UPS


    There should be no problem with what you are trying to do, one way or another. Just be sure not to overload your UPS (battery protected outlets). I myself have a power bar connected to my UPS to increase the number of battery protected outlets and everything works fine.
