Dynex Te685avr backup battery doesnt work

I have owned a Dynex surge protector (model Te685avr) for almost 6 years now. Two days ago I was out of the house and we lost power for an hour. When I came back my computer had shut down.
What I assumed happened is that while I was gone my backup power on the Dynex surge protector ran out.
The problem I have now is the 3 outlets on the side that are powered by "backup power" don't work. I have unplugged all the cords going into the unit for a whole day to charge the unit but I still cant get the outlets on the "backup" side of the surge protector to work. The 3 outlets on the otherside work just fine, but they are not backed up with power.
Any suggestions to get the other 3 to work, they have no power running to them?

    Same problem with a TE975AVR -- 3 outlets work, 3 do not (the ones backed up) -- Guess I'll try a new battery??

  • terdle Jul 22, 2008

    On second thought - this is not the right battery -- good luck finding one for the TE975AVR.................

    I have had problems with the battery also, and now no power light and only 3 of 6 plugins work, they are on the other side, not on the battery side. No good to me this way. Wiring fault light is not on. This happened after we had a power outage.

It almost certain that the batteries need to be replaced. Here's a link to someone who carries those batteries: http://www.batteryinternational.com/dynex-te685avr-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

If the battery outlets do not work, typically the Dynex TE685AVR UPS (battery backup) just needs a new battery. These batteries usually last 3-5 years.

The model of the battery is a WKA12-7.5F2 and can be purchased at: http://www.replacementupsbattery.com/Product_pages/wka12-75f2.html.

    Ok, I did some research and the Dynex TE975AVR uses two WKA12-5F batteries. I believe the originals were 12v 4.5ah, but these are now obsolete. The new batteries are 100% compatible and will give a slightly longer runtime.

The sealed batteries in these last about 6 years. You are correct in thinking that you may need a new one. Very easy to install. Here's a supplier of these: http://www.batteryinternational.com/dynex-te685avr-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

It is probably a bad battery. They usually don't last much longer than 2-3 years. You could try replacing the battery, but I would suggest just replacing the whole UPS with a new model.

Yes, it can. I have replaced more than a couple of poorly made Chinese gel-cells after fairly brief service.
Also, you can extend your UPS's service time before the battery is depleted by turning off the monitor and settings the Power Management settings to power-down hard drives after 10-20 minutes.
In my experience, the ratings on UPS systems is wildly optimistic regarding their backup capabilities.
Also; the protection against lines surges caused by even distant lightning strikes is fairly minimal.
If this is in your home, you might consider installing a 'whole house' surge arrester. Depending on the maker, they offer up to $10,000 in damage insurance to cover any losses not prevented by their devices.
The plug-in strips with 'surge protection' have a 50 cent component in them to clamp spikes to ~200VAC and these even get tired with repeated surges and eventually become totally ineffective.
If the battery checks out OK, the circuitry responsible for switching from AC line to backup mode may have already been damaged during the storm.
Switching to the 'surge protector' mode really only provides mildly conditioned AC line and involves no active electronics.

You need to replace the battery in your UPS. I went to the mfg. to find your model but i was unable to find the model you had posted. You should be able to take the battery out and go to a retail place like battery plus to get the battery you need. If not you may be able to get it from the manufacturer.After replacing the battery you should fine.Here is a link to the web site.

The battery plug in area is dead but the surge protector side works


Hello Vicki,

What you are describing is usually a result of the batteries losing their ability to hold a charge.

The surge protector side does not rely on the batteries.

I found good batteries at a reasonable cost on ebay, but I think you're going to need to replace batteries at this point.

Hope this helps.
