BE550G - APC(2 days old!) Constant Beeping and flashing green/red

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/23/2011


Hi guys,

I've had an BE550G - APC for only a few days.

I have my monitor, computer, printer, external hard drives, speakers, and all peripherals plugged into the APC.

I've had everything on except the printer. Today I turned on the printer for the first time, and everything shut down(PC, Printer, all peripherals). The APC started beeping constantly, and the light was flashing green/red. Not the Power On light or the replace battery light. The big light thats next to those two. It started blinking green/red with the constant beeping.

I turned off the printer, turned the APC off and back on and everything is ok now(with the printer off).

I'm assuming that the printer is what caused the beeping and flashing green/red lights. It can't be the battery, it's 2 days old. I'm assuming that I'm overloading the APC? How can I remedy this?

Also, could this be a socket issue? Before I bought my APC, my electronics would randomly shut off. That's why I bought the APC. But it looks like I am still overloading the sockets?

-Michael

Griffey Shoes

"That just tells you Syracuse wasn't that Griffey Shoes good," Barkley retorted. There will probably be people Air Jordan Heels who agree with Barkley that only eight Big East teams belonged in the NCAA tournament Ken Griffey Shoes as a result of the conference's awful showing, but the truth is the league simply performed well below Air Max 24 7 expectations in single-elimination format. Based on their season-long body of work, it would have been very difficult to justify leaving Nike Air Yeezy out Connecticut, Villanova or Marquette, the teams that finished ninth, 10th and 11th in the Big East regular-season standings. Even Nike Dunk Heels though he had the more logical argument, Pitino didn't exactly help himself when he looked straight into the camera and guaranteed "Notre Dame will not lose" Sunday night against Florida State. The lesson here: Never pin your TV credibility to Notre Dame in the NCAA tournament and never argue with Barkley even when you're right.

HI Michael
you have 2 kinds of output socket on the ups ,marked on them (surge protection only) and (battery backup + surge protection).
make sure to plug your printer on the outlet where it is marked surge protection only, the printer will take its power directly from the input power not from
the ups backup,in this way the ups will not be over loaded.and note when the power will cut off the printer will also turn off.
note that on the user manual for the ups the apc mentioned that printers cannot be pluget to backup outlets.
hope this will solve your issue.
