Hi,

Today I bought APC UPS BR1000-IN 600W

http://www.apc.com/products/resource/include/techspec_i...

After unpacking the UPS I came to know the problem after which I am feeling that I have lost My money for this product.

Each and every plug I have connected to it but when I was connecting MY LCD to it I found that there is one socket missing. In LCD monitor there are two plugs one which is having 3 pin plug and ends with blue cord and this 3 pin I have connected to apc ups but another plug of LCD having hole inside that hole there 3 pins are their, that socket is missing in this UPS and as a result I can not connect My LCD to this UPS. Below is the link which will help you all to guide Me.

In the above just look at the 1st black socket from the top left hand side. In this socket one cord is connected to cpu and another cord goes to ups but unfortunately this UPS is missing that socket.

Please help Me how to overcome this problem :cry: 

Thanks In Advance For Your Kind and precious guidance.

I do not understand your problem.
The UPS is to protect your Computer and LCD electrically so all you connect to it is the power cables! All other connections (such as video and sound(if built in speakers)) between computer and LCD go directly from computer to monitor.

wall <--> APC <--> PC
...............APC <--> Monitor

<--> are power cords only.

The Ups is basically to give you time to shutdown cleanly, do not plug in unnessasary devices like speakers, modems, scanners...

The very bottom plug is for the power cord to the wall; the outlets above it are for you PC, Monitor, etc.

Are you saying your monitor has a female plug? Like this?



I think we need to know what monitor you have so we can figure out why it has 2 power cords.

Hi popatim,

Perfect I m talking abt this only. Here the problem is at present I m having UPS but it is of generic one and it's battery is dead now but it is having this line where I hv connected the LCD Monitor.

Now to simply further My problem at present is when I switced off the Main Power then PC goes on to APC UPS and CPU works but LCD goes off since it is not connected to this UPS. This APC UPS is missing tht connection here is the link for your information which is missing in this APC UPS,

http://www.connect-indo.com/ups-id/153-apc-ups-br1100ci...

In My generic UPS there is one socket for this but it is not their in APC UPS which I bought.

Requesting you to advise how to resolve this.

Thanks 1ce again.

Hi rand_79,

Apologise for such confusing question which I drafted in chaos. Just refer to popatim's reply which is simplified.

Did your monitor previously plug into the back of the pc, on the pc's power supply. shown here it would plug into the bottom plug.


if YES then plug your monitor back into the pc like normal. it will run off the ups and draw AC power thru pc power supply but not actually use the pc power supply so no worries about wattage or amps calculations. Its like a built in extension cord.

Wait...

Why would a computer be set up like that?


When would you want your monitor drawing your PSU's power..

That sounds dangerous on those crappy PSUs

The monitor should only have one power connector, list your monitor model. Whatever you are talking about that you say is a power connector is not it.

You should also take pictures of the power cables you have on the computer and monitor. Unless you are using power cables and UPS from mis-matched country connectors, everything should fit.

Run the power cord from the monitor to the UPS, should be as simple as that. Or do you not have a power cord for it? Or does the power cord not match the sockets in the UPS? If the end of the power cord does not match the UPS, you need to get an adapter for it, easy and cheap to buy.

You should have a power cord from PC to UPS, Power cord from Monitor to UPS, and the vga cable from monitor to the PC video card.

Exactly, AC cord goes to UPS. If the power cord you have does not match the USP, get another cable or a converter.
