Question about CyberPower 525SL (CPS525SL) UPS System
When I turn on my UPS (Cyberpower CPS575SL) it turns on and then in a couple of seconds beeps and turns off again, then a second later it beejps again and turns on, then beeps and turns off. It just keeps doing this. There is no power outage, wiring fault light is not on & the cord is plugged in to the wall outlet. I have plugged it into another outlet and it is still the same. Does the battery need to be replaced or what?
Thank you for your help
I have the same problem.
It is most likely the battery.
I tested my battery on a Shumacher trickle charger, and the battery wouldn't hold a charge.
This is a common problem with UPS systems that use sealed lead acid batteries.
The longest life that you can expect with these types of batteries is 5 years MAX.
The battery can be replaced with a Radio Shack 12V/7200mAh Lead-Acid Battery
Model: CNB-GP1270F2 | Catalog #: 23-9030
Here is the link for the UPS users manual.
To replace battery, (unplug AC cord), turn the UPS upside down on floor or workbench.
Remove the 6 deeply recessed phillips screws, then pull the bottom off.
Remove the wire leads from the old battery (pull on the connectors, not the wires). Install new battery (red wire to red or + sign) and replace the bottom and screws. Careful, tighten the screws finger tight (plastic strips easily).
Plug in UPS and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps

Yep, that sounds like a battery that needs to be replaced. Here's the original battery used in that unit: http://www.batteryinternational.com/cyber-power-cps525sl-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

E-MAIL I RECEIVED FROM CYBERPOWER:
There is no other known cause of the cycling on/off behavior aside from a bad battery. IT is possible that some component of the battery relay or inverter has failed. If this is the case it would not be repairable outside of warranty.

MY PROBLEM: NOT the battery!
