SOURCE: printer will not turn on

the UPS is unplugged from the power outlet but it is still connected to the modem

it is a lightning storm - and computer equipments & peripherals can only withstand very little amount of electricity

check your warranty status (warranty starts from the date of purchase) then call the vendor

SOURCE: hi,do I have to keep my ups plugged to a wall socke all the time?

hi,
the unit needs to be plugged in all the time. the unit is or should be fully automatic. higher priced units have a usb cord so you can check their status right on the computer, does your ups have a usb outlet? you might want to take it up to a computer store and buy a usb cable and then you can control your UPS with your computer. manually turning the UPS on and off shouldnt hurt anything.
good luck

Well, first let address the lack of power usage from your router and cable modem. The router, depending on model, may only use less than 5 amps of of power, depending on the load it is using at any one time, the cable modem is using maybe 2 amps, at peak load, since the line is already powered from the cable company, there is no real load. Since the usage is much less than 1 watt, it would not register on your meter. The reason why unplugging your devices from the wall, for it to not provide backup power to all of the devices is the battery(ies) may not be providing enough juice to maintain the power required for ll of the devices plugged in. Also, UPS are generally not compatible with power strips and therefore do not tend to function properly with a devices powered on the strip. They generally won't complete the power connection due to the strip carrying a much higher load than the UPS can support. This should explain all of your power issues. If you require additional information, please do not hesitate to ask.

My computer does not shut down and my ups does not give me battery backup when power is cut off


First, check that the battery inside the UPS is taking a charge, and holding the charge.
Disconnect all devices from the UPS.
Connect something simple to one of the "protected" sockets, e.g., radio or table lamp.
Turn the radio/lamp on.
Disconnect the UPS from the wall-outlet, to simulate a power-failure.
Does the radio/lamp continue to work?
If not, the battery inside the UPS needs to be replaced.
If it does work, for how many minutes does it work, i.e., how much power can it provide?

Second, check that you have some wire (serial-cable or USB-cable) connecting the UPS to your computer, so that the UPS can signal to your computer that the AC power has been interrupted.

Third, check that the computer software that came with the UPS is installed, and is "talking" to the UPS, i.e., to receive the "alert" message from the UPS.

How to charge ups for pc's


Your PC connection must always come via UPS, and your UPS will always keep charging.

UPS Power cable should be connected to DC, and your PC power cable should be connected to UPS.

And this way your PC will always be safe.

When i Connect the power cable from ups to the power inlet on the server i get some funny noise. I try to put the machine on, no response.Seems no power getting the machine.


Maybe I am reading this wrong but it sounds like you are connecting the equipment in the wrong sequence. The service is plugged into the back of the UPS unit and the UPS is plugged into a wall outlet. The UPS is a power conditioner/surge protector that keeps your server from being fried if a sudden power surge goes through and it act as a back-up power source if you lose power. Try this new connection sequence and see if you have better luck.

disconnect all external devices and then bypass the UPS and plug the power cables, monitor and computer, into wall socket outlets. Make sure and disconnect any ethernet cable as well.
