I picked up a Belkin AP 30800 UPS and surge suppressor for almost nothing. It sat in previous owners storage for 3 years, but I was willing to take a chance. Having been plugged in for a week it still will not power up. Bottom line up front: Will replacing the batteries will it power up and work?
I don't want to spend the $50 on batteries if that won't fix the problem.
I took some voltage measurements if that will help for those of you that might be in the know about these things.
Circuit breaker 118V (this is what I have coming out of wall)
2 outlets only on surge suppressor 118V
6 outlets under ups pwr 20V
batteries 7V (this was together, I didn't break them apart and measure each one)
Lines going to the batteries 30V (one comes from circuit board and other comes from what I assume is a transformer)
I've annotated in a picture if that is helpful.
