Batteries in the UPS typically last 3 to 5 years and it depends upon several factors. including the number of times the unit must go on battery power and environmental conditions. There are usually several batteries in the UPS and while the battery voltage may show 13 volts, this may only be a float charge/voltage and a true indication of the battery voltage and condition requires the batteries to be tested under a load. There maybe one battery in a set of batteries that is faulty and causes the whole battery system to fail and indicate a battery fault.
The other possibility is the charging circuit may be faulty.

1. Four beeps every 30seconds (On Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the Battery PowerSupplied outlets are now supplying battery power as opposed to power from theutility. If the UPS determines that the input utility power is unsafe for yourcomputer equipment, the UPS will switch to battery power.

I have an Symmetra RM APC and there is an amber light showing and a beeping about every 30 seconds.


Hi Ewiesemann,

The amber light on the UPS usually means that the unit is 'on battery' -- meaning that input power is affected. Check to make sure that unit is plugged in and check to make sure that a breaker on a panel feeding the UPS power hasn't tripped.

Hope this helps.

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.

Unit is switching to battery power for now reason.


Any UPS monitors the incoming AC level to determine if it is needed or not.  I think the APC unit doesn't know any more when it is needed; it's sick.

APC Smart-UPS 1400 no power


Better late than never...

The older Smart UPS models are peculiar in the way that they appear dead (will not power on) if the battery is completely bad.

Replace the battery, and the UPS should come back to life.
