XS-1300 beeps forever, no matter what we do

This was originally posted on APC forums on 9/25/2011


I have a XS-1300 unit. We purchased it about a year ago and upon plugging it in, it beeps 3 times every minute or so. Powerchute says the unit is fine but the beeping continues. We put it on the back shelf giving up on it and just pulled it out again. I cannot find any info regarding this series of 3 beeps.

Here is the info on the unit.

del: Back-UPS BX1300G
Serial number: 3B0944X04165
Firmware revision: 864.L1.D
Software version: PowerChute Personal Edition 3.0.0.1
Date of last manual self-test: 9/25/2011
Result of last manual self-test: Passed
RAM: 5.99 GB
Free disk space: 6029.65 GB

Can anyone offer assistance? I am ready to crack the case and rip the speaker out of it to fix the problem. otherwise the unit works fine.

Hi Lewis,

I hope you could record the beeps that it makes and upload it here or call our Technical Support Team so that they could hear it over the phone.

While the UPS is beeping three times, what do you notice on the LCD display? Does it tell/show you anything like flashing battery icon? Can you also try to set the sensitivity to a lower value using the PowerChute Personal Edition?
