You are absolutely correct ,just know I found one of the 24Vdc relay internally faulty.
I have already replaced to a good one now the unit is running at normal operation.

Dear wkyong
I happen to have the exact same problem you had. Could you please help with a picture and/or replacement part number for the faulty relay. I am in Nigeria and there is no big APC presence and my beloved UPS is out of warranty. Also - what effect will the faulty relay have on operations? Is it that the UPS powers down whenever the input voltage goes out of spec?

Thanks and best regards,

Edwin

Good morning, It's the same with a smart-ups (usa1500rmi 2u) I have it from a friend who gave it to your employer as being spoiled. I bought batteries and !!!!!............ Plugged it in, and LEDs remain off. Pulse test button and all 6 LEDs blink a few times all at the same time with the right of the battery. Nor passes power to peripherals (computer). Bone current output is dead. I wanted to ask what is the solution and if it is to take it to the service, tell me where I find one in Bucharest Romania. I hope some admin a pm. Thanks in advance.

unfortunately, we cannot. i personally don't even know where it is but these units are technically not user serviceable, only by Coastal Business Machines, an APC service partner. also, APC schematics are proprietary.

unfortunately, a battery does not always fix every issue with a UPS.

i am based on North America so I do not know of any service centers in Romania personally but if you want, you can use the http://www.apc.com/support/contact/index.cfm page and change your country and ask technical support in that region for any service centers or whatever else you may need.

Hi All. I also got this problem to my APC SUA 1500 ICH(CHINA 220V version) that all LEDs blinking when I tried to turn it on, meanwhile battery mode (remove the plug out of the utility power) works very well.
I just found a topic (not in English but able to be translated). I just placed an order (relays), now need to wait for them. I will update this if there is any good result. 
If your UPS is too old already, You should replace all the relays, especially the AVR relays (RY1 and RY2) because they have been working too many times, for 10 incredible years,
Hope this helps
