Can anyone plz tell me how to tone down, or turn off the "battery on" beeping sound of my UPS???
It's driving me crazy, with small voltage fluctuations, it keeps going 'beep-beep' like 7-8 times and then silences, then again in five minutes or so, the bugger beeps again.
My UPS is some chinese product, (Perfect power solutions, smthing lyk that) and ever since I had it, my problems have been magnifying in nature and annoyance.
Is there any hardware tweak that I can do to shut the noise off or at least lower it???
Presuming that they use similar internals, your UPS might be overloaded. That's easy to check; disconnect it from the wall outlet while the PC is running the applications that you normally use when beeping occurs and see if the PC cleanly shuts down or if the UPS powers off within a few seconds.
the ups gives backup for 5 mins allryt, but that is not the concern. its how it beeps when it gets switched to battery power and then mains and to and fro for 4-5 times, which i believe is a voltage issue.
Anyway, I have muffled it wiht some cotton and it doesn;t bother me much.
I also presume that the batteries are getting weak because they often get used, but that UPS might also be too weak for what's connected to it. I still believe that the beep code indicate that it's overloaded.
