    This morning when i turned my computer on the UPS started flashing the overload light with a constant sound, no other lights on. It even does this if i disconnect everything from its outlets and from the supply line. If i disconnect the battery online is green, replace battery is flashing red and there's a beeping sound. Is there a way to tell if the battery is bad or the unit?

    if you reconnect the battery to the UPS and the overload LED is still flashing with a constant tone with no load attached, it is indicating an internal fault on the UPS itself unfortunately.

    Ok, thanks. Do you think it's worth looking into repair or should i just replace it? The battery is pretty old, 3plus years, even though it passed the last test a week ago.

    yeah, i'd look into the APC Trade UPS program. you can trade in this faulty UPS for a discount towards a new one with a new battery and new three year warranty. APC also pays for shipping back of the old unit/battery for recycling. or if you prefer, buy from where ever you normally do.

    i dont think its worth repairing. coastal business machines (www.cbmi.com) is APC's authorized repair center but I am not sure they do repairs on these smaller units.

    [info on the trade ups program can be seen here|http://www.apc.com/recycle/index.cfm]

    let me know if you need anything else.
