Re: Keeps making a beeping noise
Hi, if the unit is fairly new, you may want to claim warranty check or replacement. If it has been used for some time, it may be that: 1) the battery is dying, 2) not getting enough charge or 3) too much load. For 1, battery replacement might be required. Care should be taken since this requires opening the enclosure, removing the old battery (might have acid leaks) and replacing with a new one. For 2), any competent techncian could diagnose and repair. For 3) try removing all other loads to the UPS and just run the PC with the monitor and see if the problem still exist. Hope this works for you and please let me know how things trun up. Regards.

This could be several things, fortunately the device should actually be helping you to diagnose the issue. There are different beeps for different issues. They are as follows:
1 Beep Every 5 Seconds = Power Outage\Loose Plug Connection\Tripped Circuit Breaker\Power Cord Damage or Failure
2 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Low Battery Alarm
3 Beeps Every 5 Seconds = Battery Needs Charging\Service\Replacement
3 Beeps Every 5 Minutes = The Battery is discharged and battery power is unavailable (If this continues battery replacement may be necessary)
1 Beep Ever 1/2 Second = Power Requirements exceed the UPS Capacity (remove some equipment to lighten the load on the unit)
Continuous Beep = Short Circuit / Input Voltage out of Range / UPS Fault (Likely replacement of entire unit)
That should help diagnose the actual issue. If it turns out the battery needs to be replaced they can be found online for around $20. A simple google search for Powerware 3110 Battery should return what you're after. Good luck!
Continuous Beeping (theamber On Battery LED will be illuminated) This alarm indicates that the UPS has reached aLow Battery condition and will soon shutdown. The UPS can only operate onbattery for a limited amount of time. In order to protect the unit's batteriesfrom discharging too much, the UPS will shutdown and turn off its output. Towarn you that the unit will soon shutdown, the UPS will sound this alarm 2minutes before actual shutdown. With optional Powerchute Plus software, 2minutes can be changed to 5, 7, or 10 minutes to give you more of a warning ofimpending shutdown. If you hear this tone, you should immediately gracefullyshutdown your operating system to prevent data loss or corruption. Note:This graceful shutdown will occur automatically if Powerchute PLUS software isbeing used.
Constant, Solid Tone (the red Overload LEDwill be illuminated) This alarm indicates that the UPS has detectedan Overload condition. If this alarm is sounded, try removing non-essentialequipment. The alarm will remain until the load is reduced. To determine ifyour UPS is capable of handling the equipment you want to protect, visit APC'sSizing Guide at www.apcc.com/sizing.
Continuous Beeps for One Minute; RepeatedEvery 5 Hours (Replace Battery LED will be illuminated) This alarm indicates that the UPS has failed itsSelf-Test of the battery. The unit will continue to sound this alarm until theunit passes the test. Try to let the unit charge for a few hours and thenperform another Self-Test (Press and hold the on/off button until the second'chirp', then release). If it fails and the unit is still in-warranty (twoyears from date of purchase), then contact APC. If the unit fails and its outof warranty, then order a replacement battey cartridge through your reseller,distributor, or from APC's web site.
Two possibilities come to mind. 1) The battery has failed and can't be charged fully (usually one cell fails and it won't charge fully). I've diagnosed this by removing the battery and trying to charge it with a variable power supply. You can try replacing the battery. 2) The UPS itself is faulty and can't charge/maintain the battery. The entire unit should be replaced.
I recommend solution 2. I had the 725VA in this consumer UPS line and when I replaced the battery, the UPS could not keep the battery charged with any load on the unit.
Check your warranty, though. The APC warranty is for 2 years on this model.
The Back-UPS Office unit has five different tones or alarms:
1. Four beeps every 30 seconds (On Battery LED will be illuminated) This alarm indicates that the Battery Power Supplied outlets are now supplying battery power as opposed to power from the utility. If the UPS determines that the input utility power is unsafe for your computer equipment, the UPS will switch to battery power. Note: If the power disturbance is brief, you may only hear one or two beeps.
2. Continuous Beeping (On Battery LED will be illuminated) This alarm indicates that a Low Battery condition has been reached and that the UPS will soon shutdown. Once the UPS transfers to On Battery operation, it can only stay on battery for a limited amount of time. The UPS will sound this alarm about two minutes before the batteries are totally exhausted. Once exhausted, the UPS will shutdown and turn off its output power to your equipment. If you hear this tone you should immediately shutdown your computer to prevent data loss or corruption.
3. Continuous Beeps for 30 seconds (Back UPS OFFICE 250 and 280 ONLY) This alarm indicates the unit has detected an Overload condition after it has performed a self-test during start-up.
4. Continuous Two-Tone Beep This alarm indicates a severe Overload was detected while the unit was on-battery operation. This tone will continue to sound until the unit shuts down.
5. Continuous Tone (On Battery LED will be flashing) This alarm indicates that the battery-powered outlets are overloaded.
6. Continuous Tone (On Line and On Battery LEDs flashing) Back UPS OFFICE 350, 400, and 500 ONLY This alarm indicates that an internal UPS fault has occurred.
you can try this asia systems technologies look for our sale person william +65 65478990 [email protected] i suspected that now that u UPS is have hardware issue.. to determine if the unit is really the problem it hav to be do a further diagnos..
