Dennis,

Have you tried different outlets in your residence? Have you tried different outlets at a different location? If it comes on at some outlets and not at others, I would contact an electrician to see what the electrical noise levels are feeding that one outlet (or possibly circuit) that the UPS is on. If it's still within 30 days and not working ANYWHERE, I would recommend you can return it to the store.

Dennis,

There should be instructions in the manual to adjust the sensitivity via the front display.

You might wanna set it to low and try it, it could just be electrical noise keeping the UPS on battery.

If it's not in there:

1. Turn UPS off, keep plugged in
2. Depress power button for 10 seconds until all LED's flash
3. Release power button, and three LED's should be flashing
4. Press the power button twice so that 1 LED is flashing

You're now in low-sensitivty mode. If you leave the panel alone it will go out of configuration mode itself.

Now try to turn it back on.

The Problem Still Persist, No Matter What Sensitivity Mode i put it in it still dose Solid orange and blinking green, then green will stop blinking and orange will stay solid with beeps every 30 seconds.
