Hi there, I'm wondering if I can use my "Trip Lite Office UPS500" as a surge protector only (the left 3 outlets), I don't need the battery back-up? Is it going to work properly without the battery? Thank You! Best, Vlad

Yes it will work just fine make sure that the outlets you are plugging into the 3 are surge protected. Thanks for using FixYa! Most battery backups and backup modules are surge protected on-board. John

Does the power switch supposed to be on in a newpoint surge protector S75t?


Yes. Otherwise it will not release power to the outlets.

I looked for the specific manual for your surge protector, but I was only able to find one for another Newpoint model (RX50TA). These are all pretty much the same from one brand or model to the next so the information should be sufficient to backup my assertion here. You will find a line on page 2 that states power will not be supplied to the outlets when the power to the surge protector is off. Surge protectors automatically turn off (or trip) to protect your equipment.

Surge Guard 50amp - no shore power


Do you have good power that the outlet. I have seen many issues at RV parks of not having sustained power or one leg of the breaker going bad causing loss of power. If you do have good power coming into the surge protector but not out. Then go through the reset procedures for the surge protector. If it will not reset, then the surge protector has failed and will need to be replaced. If power is coming through then check the main breakers in the coach for possible failure. Breakers can trip but still look as if they are properly set. Turn them completely off then back on to reset.

Just purchased the unit 2 weeks ago. Worked great. Last night I left it plugged into an outlet - but turned "off". This AM the unit comes on; timer showing default @ 5 minutes; however, no...


I wonder if you are talking about a coffee maker?
It ended up being listed under Vacuums!-
Sorry about that-- It sounds like you arehaving trouble getting the maker to boil water, and move it thru the maker, no?

Anyway-- I don't see why leaving it 'on' all night should have done anything wrong-
But maybe the Coffee maker guys know more about this repair than we do in Vacuums-
Sorry about that

My Trip Lite Internet550SER UPS battery back up /serge protector was purchased through Dell only 8 months ago. Last night we had a major strom with power outage. This morning when I came in the devise was...


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.

Only one side of the outlets work...


From the User Manual:

“OVERLOAD/CHECK BATTERY” LED: this red LED lights continuously after a self-test to
indicate the capacity of the battery-supported outlets has been exceeded. To clear the overload, unplug some of your equipment from the battery-supported outlets; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self-Test. If the UPS continues to detect an overload, remove more equipment and repeat the self test until successful.

CAUTION! Any overload that is not corrected by the user immediately following a self-test may cause the UPS to shut down and cease supplying output power in the event of a blackout or brownout.

The LED flashes to indicate the battery needs to be recharged or replaced. If the LED flashes (and a continuous alarm sounds) during a prolonged blackout or brownout, the UPS’s batteries are nearly out of power; you should save files and shut down your equipment immediately.

If the LED flashes following a UPS self-test (after the UPS is turned ON), it may indicate that the battery needs to be replaced. Allow the UPS to recharge continuously for 12 hours; then use the ON/OFF/TEST button to run a Self Test.

If the LED continues to flash, contact Tripp Lite for service. Should your UPS require battery replacement, visit Tripp Lite on the web at www.tripplite.com/support/battery/index.cfm to locate the specific replacement battery for your UPS.

Hope this helps!

Surge protector shuts off while playing PS3


swap to another surge protector. if it still does it, it is a power surge at the outlet, if it does not, the Surge Proctector has worn out. have someone with the appropriate knowlege have a look at the outlet as well. older outlets especially tend to wear to the point where the plug literally falls out of the wall.

When plugged, it shorts the surge protector and outlets.


I noticed that my refrigerator, kenmore freezer2_bing.gif, and stove were all not on. This has not ever been a problem before, so I unplugged the surge protector and reset the outlet. I then plugged the refrigerator2_bing.gif and the kenmore freezer to the surge protector and I noticed when I plugged the kenmore freezer it just shorted the surge protector. I then just plugged in the refrigerator and oven to the surge protector with no problems. I tried to plug kenmore freezer to other outlet and same result "a short

Dynex Te685avr backup battery doesnt work


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.
