We have a APC Smart UPS 2200XL. We had a power failure last night and now all six lights in the front (AVR Trim, On Line, AVR boost, Overload, On Battery, and replace battery) are flashing at the same...


The light pattern indicates the batteries need to be replaced. The typical life of UPS batteries is 2.5 years, after this time the cells will not hold the proper charge. When your power when off last night the UPS would have tried to switch to battery power but it most likely failed after just a few minutes as the batteries shorted. The UPS has a protection circuit that prevents it from starting up properly with dead batteries so you get the flashing lights and the unit shuts off. The batteries are available in most cities from car battery dealers, not like Wal-mart but battery only dealers, just look in the yellow pages for batteries. You can take the old batteries out of the unit by removing the front panel and unscrewing the metal plate just behind the front cover. The old batteries are connected with a wiring harness that plugs in. Just bring the old batteries to the dealer so they can get you the correct replacement part. The new ones should be less than $100 so it is well worth the price compared to a new unit.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
