Question about APC Computers & Internet
Husband was watching tv (youtube). Episodes were loading slow then the tv shut down and our APC started beeping. Got the APC reset but tv won't turn on.
Sounds like a capacitor in one of the power supplies exploded either in your high voltage horizontal power supply or the main power supply. If you don't mind taking off the back cover you actually might be able to find this capacitor it will have a huge hole in it.
Capacitors tend to dry out after about 5-6 years and can explode just like yours has.

By APC are you refering to an APC UPS? If so it is probablt because the printer is overloading the UPS. You should not plug printers into UPS's

With a 980watt load the run time is only 7 minutes on a brand new battery. If you have the system on full load your run time will be much less and it has likely damaged the battery. here is the APC web site page for your model. If you are running that much equipment I think you need either a bigger UPS or another 1500 and spread the load out.
