Remove power cord with no backup battery

I removed the power supply from the wall and when I went to plug the power back in, the phone stopped working properly. The "intercom" button is flashing red and green. When I press any of the buttons, it makes an error beeping noise. The phone will ring when a call is coming in, but I don't get a dial tone so I can't answer it. I've checked all the cords and outlets and they seem to be in good working order. Has anyone experienced the same problem or doesn't anyone have any advise for a solution? Thanks

Each telephone must be connected to line 1 and line 2 for
proper operation. The remaining lines 3 and 4 may — or may not —
be connected to each station as you desire. First plug in the battery, then the phone lines (1 & 2 are mandatory), and third the power cord. If your intercome LED is blinking red and green, then press: STORE IN, followed by "INTERCOM" followed by a free intercom# (i.e., any of the memory buttons 1 through 16 not already assigned to another telephone set.) Then wait for the phone to go through its initiation sequence during which it searches each of the four possible lines. After that concludes, you should get dial tone on your active lines. :-) Marco

You need to assign the phone an intercom number. To do this, hang up the phone and for intercom number one try pressing the speed dial number 1 twice quickly. I think for intercom number 2 you need to press speed dial number 1 then 2 quickly. The phone will start to work after a few seconds. Hope this helps.

Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    My hp probook is not coming ON either on battery or electricity, it displays a blue light by the charging port. please suggest what to do.

    This indicates that either your internal power supply unit or motherboard is no longer working. Unless you are a laptop DIY expert, I'd say you have to send it back to HP for service or warranty.

    Power wont come on

    Either the power supply has a loose connection or is faulty.
    You can try removing the battery pack, press and hold power button for 3 seconds and then put battery back in and see if it corrects the problem. You can test power output from the supply to see if it is putting out the voltage it states it should on the label of supply.

    If the UPS has the serial or USB cable attached to a computer of any kind, you can use the UPS management software to disable the alarm until you can replace the battery. You should schedule the battery replacement for after hours just to be safe. If your phone system has redundant power supplies or two power cords, you can plug the system into wall power to replace the battery and then go back to battery power when you're done.

    No power to a SR1420NX.

    Power supply light on or flashes Perform the following steps, in order, until power is restored or it is determined that there is a hardware failure: CAUTION: This product contains components that are easily damaged by ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC.
    1. Disconnect everything from the computer, including the power cord.
    2. With the power cord disconnected , press the power button on the front of the computer for five seconds. Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps. NOTE: If the power supply fan makes an inconsistent grinding sound or stops and starts erratically, replace the power supply
    3. With the power cord removed, flip the red voltage selector switch to the opposite position. Wait about five seconds, and then switch the red voltage selector switch back to its original location. Ensure that the voltage selector switch is on the correct setting, 115V for North America. Performing this step ensures that the voltage switch is engaged and set correctly for your country/region. Figure 4: Voltage selector switch c00517964.jpg Plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.
    4. Plug a lamp into the same outlet to see if the wall outlet has power. Try the computer in a different outlet in order to eliminate the outlet as a possible source of the issue. Test both to see if the wall outlets have power.
    5. Remove all extension cords, power strips, surge protectors and any converters that remove ground. Plug the power cable directly to the wall outlet. Test for power. If this fixes the issue, find the device that is causing the issue and do not use it. NOTE: If you find the device that was causing the problem was a surge protector, resetting a breaker or fuse on the surge protector may fix the issue.
    6. Remove all attached devices except for keyboard, mouse, and monitor.
    7. Remove any internal component that was recently added, such as video card, memory, CD, DVD, and hard drives. An added device may take more power than the power supply is rated for. If the problem goes away when the component is removed, the only option is to upgrade the power supply to power supply with a higher wattage rating.
    8. Check the power switch:
      1. With the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the front of the PC. The button should release easily and not stick in the socket.
        • If the button sticks, it should be replaced or serviced.
        • If the power button does not stick and appears to be functioning, continue using these steps.
      2. With the power cord disconnected, remove the case or side panel.
      3. Follow the wires from the power button on the front of the computer to their connection on the motherboard.
      4. Look at the power switch cables connected to the motherboard. If the cable has become disconnected, connect the power switch cable connector to the connector on the motherboard. Figure 5: Power switch connector on Motherboard c00517968.jpg
      5. Replace the side panel, plug in the power cord and test to see if the computer can turn on. If not, continue using these steps.

    The all-in-one product does not turn on If the all-in-one product does not turn on at all, try the following actions in order to determine the cause:
    1. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.
    2. Unplug the power supply from the back of the printer.
    3. Remove the product cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
    4. Wait at least 20 seconds, then, plug in the supply back into the wall outlet.
    5. Plug in the power supply back into the printer.
    6. Press the power button to turn the printer on.
    7. For models that have an external power supply module, verify that the power supply module is plugged in correctly. Some power supply modules have a green LED built into the connector end or on the power supply module. This LED will be lit if power is present. If the LED is not lit, replace the power supply module.
    8. Plug the power cord into a different electrical outlet. If the all-in-one product has an ADF with an external cable plugged into the back of the product, use the following procedure:
      1. Turn off the unit.
      2. Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet.
      3. Unplug the ADF cable from the back of the product.
      4. Plug the ADF cable to the back of the product.
      5. Plug in the power cable to the wall outlet, and turn on the power.
        1. If no change, the problem is not the ADF.
        2. If the problem clears, turn off the all-in-one, unplug the power cable, and reconnect the ADF.
        3. If the error returns, the ADF is defective. Contact HP Customer Care to get the ADF replaced.
    9. Disconnect the computer parallel cable from the back of the all-in-one product and try to turn on the product again. The computer might be grounding out through the parallel port. If this corrects the issue, check the grounding of the computer and outlet.
