Re: Shutting down computer
You need a new battery. A battery store such as Batteries Plus can help you. Many Ace Hardware stores will order one for you and in fact, Radio Shack has the most common battery types in store or can get it for you. If you go through Cyber Power you will pay the highest price.
Hope this helped you.

My Cyber Power 685AVR needs to be charged again as my little grandson pushed the butten and ran it down. I've tryed to charge but it's doing nothing . do I have to hook it up another way to charge, and Do I turn it on when chargeing ? please help me if you can !! thank you so much.
With your UPS turned off, unplug your PC and all other devices from the unit. Then turn the UPS on. If it still beeps and shuts off your UPS internal battery may need to be replaced or you have an internal UPS failure. Look for a red "battery alarm" light on the front of your UPS.
If the UPS does not shut down with all devices disconnected from it, Power off your monitor and look on the back of the monitor for a label which will tell you the amount of power it requires (probably 100 watts or less). Plug the monitor's AC power cord into your UPS and turn on your PC and monitor. With the UPS plugged into the AC line you are not using the internal battery and the UPS should remain on and your monitor should be working. If it shuts down you have an internal problem with the UPS.
Now unplug your UPS from the AC line (simulating a power failure) Your UPS is rated at 350 watts. Accordingly it should easily support the 100 watt load of your monitor. If the UPS continues to provide power to the monitor for 1 or 2 minutes down it's an indication that it's working properly and the COMBINED LOAD of your monitor. PC etc. when plugged into the UPS is exceeding the 350 watt capacity of the UPS. You will have to disconnect 1 or more devices from the UPS.
NOTE: Never plug a laser printer into an UPS.
If the UPS immeadiately shuts down after disconnecting it from the AC line with only the monitor plugged into it you have a bad battery.

You must install the software that came with your UPS on the computer that will be connected to the UPS, either via serial or USB. Within the software you can configure when to shut the computer down in case of a power failure.
The UPS can temporarily provide power to IT hardware in the event of a disruption to the Mains power supply. The UPS should stay powered up for long enough to enable the hardware it is protecting to be powered down in a controlled manner, before shutting off itself. The 5 minute period seems reasonable for such a task (although significantly less than the rated time), and if at any point within that period the Mains power supply comes back online, the hardware could continue to work.
I note that this particular model is supposed to provide battery power for 85 - 95 minutes. The amount of time it can supply regulated voltage for will depend upon the load placed upon it. The greater the load (in terms of current drawing devices), the shorter the amount of time that the UPS will be able to provide power.
There may be a Manufacturer Limited Warranty period (parts): 2 years for this model, although labour charges will probably be made.
If the battery is over 3 years old then it most likely needs to be replaced. Since it works fine except for when it is relying on power from the battery, then a new battery should make it just like new. http://www.batteryinternational.com/ups-batteries.html should have the battery you need. Hope that helps.
you can program your power bottom to hibernate, and connect the screen direct without the UPS, so you get more time...then when the electricity goes off, without seeing the screen just push the power bottom to hibernate.
You can download the manual from the link below:
The "wiring fault" could be serious, as per manual:
"This LED indicator will illuminate to warn the user that a wiring problem exists, such as bad ground, missed ground, or reversed wiring. If this is illuminated, user is advised to disconnect all electrical equipment from the outlet and have an electrician check the outlet to insure proper ground."
I would turn the UPS off, unplug all equipment, wait 10 seconds, reset the circuit breaker (if tripped) and turn the unit on.
If you still have an issue then it's probably fried! Have you had any thunder storms or electrical power outages recently? Check your house insurance because it may cover a replacement unit.
