I heard a buzzer sound followed by two beep sound when I power on the system. I search in the mannual. This beep code means that power supply is in protected mode. System not turned on but power switch remain on all time. What is the solution other than replacment of power supply. Because its too costly.

Sounds like one of two errors - either one of the power supplies has died (not sure if the 1800 has redundant power supplies or not) or a drive in the RAID array has failed. Most likely it's the drive. Run the Dell Server Administrator tool to check the health status of the array, sounds like you need to replace a drive. Most RAID systems fail if you lose more than one drive, so I'd replace that drive ASAP.
Some simple things it could be...Check the screws on the mainboard holding it to the case. The mainboard uses these screws to ground the board and sometimes they can loosen up from heat & cold expansion over time. Also dust is conductive and if enough gathers on the board it can cause problems also. So use some compressed air on the mainboard to clear out the dust. And also a power supply going bad can cause problems like this. If you have another computer with a working power supply try swapping it out and see if that works. More info on the setup would be helpful.
dependent on how many beeps you hear is dependent on what might be the problem.
A fuller explanation from pushing the power button to nothing happening would be more than helpful.
Beeps in a Poweredge can mean motherboard, memory or as you said power supply problems.
Check your Hardware configuration. This usually happens when you tell the system BIOS that you have for example, a second floppy or Hard Drive, when you do not. So it stops and asks you what to do next.
