I am having a problem with these UPS's not starting up automatically after the power comes on.
The unit runs the battery out during the outage, but when power is restored I have to manually turn it back on.
Is there a way to have it come on automatcially upon power restoration?

The UPS may not be sufficiently stable on power-on to run a PC immediately.
Try going into the BIOS setup after the restart and look for the option that has the computer "Start up automatically after power failure." Turn this off. That will take care of problem 1.
If this also takes care of problem 2, you may want to check whether the UPS has a problem. Start by plugging a couple of lamps with 100 Watt bulbs into the UPS outlets instead of the computer. Turn it on - the lamps should behave normally, not flicker or change brightness. With the lamps and UPS still on, unplug the UPS. The lamps should stay on with little or no change, and the battery warning light should not come on right away. If the UPS fails this test, its battery may need to be replaced or it has a regulator problem.
this may happen because of gone battery without battery it will not comes on mains also so directly change battery before that you also check the fuse if blown replace it with same ratings problem will be solved
115V x 8 amps =920VA x.778 power factor = 717.76 wattsStart up 50 watts = 667.76 watts You need a 1000VA UPS. The one you have is way too small. That 375 UPS is good for answering machines, plus it does not have AVR technology. Your UPS power supply is 250Watts, and the monitor is at least 150 watts and the printer is another 200 watts....=600watts So that 375VA ups x.778= 291.75 watts. That hardware of yours is killing your very very very cheap UPS. It is obvious that Tech support has no application engineering support. Well I did all the work for them. I suggest a 1000VA or a 1500VA for more time. check out my web page, I only sell to dealers, but I will help you out. www.storminprotection.com
If you've got nothing my guess is its something more than the battery as it should still be able to draw power if its plugged in. If its within the warranty period (3 yrs, I believe). Go to the belkin webpage and to their ups support and start the process to return it and get it fixed/replaced. A couple months ago I had a F6C500-UNV that suddenly died on me just like yours - no nothing. It cost me $13.00 or so bucks to ship the broken unit to Belkin; a week or two later I got a brand spankin' new F6C550 or whatever they currently sell in that same voltage area back from them. The cost to RMA the broken unit was much cheaper than even buying a new battery for the old and now discontinued unit.
