BP1100 Switched Outlets Always On

This was originally posted on APC forums on 6/10/2010


I just noticed today when I shut my system down that my monitor stayed on. I checked each outlet on the Back-UPS Pro BP1100 & there is full power to them even if the unit is switched off. I checked the battery backup by unplugging the UPS with the computer system running & it works fine. No unusual lights on the front & everything else seems ok except the switched outlets are always on (hot).

Does anyone have a clue what is happening? I'd hate to throw it away just because of the switched outlet failure because I can always manually switch the monitor off.

That's exactly what's happening. I'm just wondering if a larger problem is lurking in the shadows & just waiting to spring out just when I can't afford to be without a UPS. At the moment it works fine as a UPS - just no switching the outlets off.

I wish it was in warranty, but it's 6 yrs old & I put new batteries in it a little over a year ago. I think I will use it 'till the batteries die & then decide whether to replace or repair. Shipping charges will probably be a repair killer since this thing is quite heavy even without batteries.

Thanks,
Tim

If you want to replace this UPS with the latest model you can call APC Technical Support and avail of the Trade-UPS program. You'll be given a special discount on your next UPS purchase and we would take care of the disposal of the old unit. Feel free to give them a call at 800.800.4272
