Back ups ES 350, rapid flashing

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/27/2009


I noticed it has been flashing rapid (counted ~4 per second) for a few weeks now. This morning I got a constant tone, only stopped with the power button. None of my other UPSs gave a tone and power was on.
Power cycling stopped the tone, but the flashing continues. I was hoping someone would have some insight into this warning light.

I took the battery out and put it on a tester, seemed ok. ~14V, no leakage ohms.

Is there an online manual for this model I can reference? Best I could find is the safety sheet. I have been using the 750's manual for troubleshooting.

hi

can you confirm the UPS model number, which is located on the bottom with the serial number? Is this a BE350, BE350U, BE350R, etc?

I can get you the correct user manual after that.

I apologize for leaving that out. It is the BE350UX276.

edit:
Also the constant tone came back, about an hour after I power cycled it. I just power cycled it again and it seems normal, besides the blinking.
