Question about APC Smart-UPS 1000VA UPS System
I was wondering if anyone knew why a Smart UPS 1500 battery level ( which has new batteries) would continue to blink on and off green.
The UPS works fine and keeps everything powered up but the battery meter on the front display continues to blink. The lights are green and I have shut down and reset the power ups several times over - lights will set and then start to blink.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated on anything I can try to solve this issue.
You need to run recalibration on the unit. The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB). If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC. It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future. I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration. By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing. Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing). This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.
