    Surf over to APC's support page at http://www.apc.com/support/index.cfm and
    download manuals and application notes from there. You'll not find service
    manuals there... they hold those very dear to their hearts. They only release
    them to authorized service centers, and they won't let them out either.

    Here is what you want:

    (User Manual Addendum)

    Good luck.
     
  4. That would probably be an SU700XL. See the serial number label.
    APC does not offer service manuals. There are a APC schematics
    floating around the web but nothing for the SU700XL.

    User manuals are at:
    | http://www.apcc.com/tools/mytools/index.cfm?action=search&category=user
    The only manuals for the SmartUPS SU700XLNET is the safety manual and
    a 2 page basic operations manual.

    Most of the UPS's I see used come with dead batteries, which are
    sometimes more expensive to replace than the resale value of the UPS.
    APC has an updgrade program, which offers about 1/3 off retail, and
    about $120 for your trade-in.
     
  5. Forget about getting info from APC, they only want to sell a new unit. 9
    out of 10 times it only requires a new battery to fix. Test with an
    external SLA battery, if it works, buy a proper battery. I suggest
    Battery Wholesale Distributors to find a replacement that will fit. If
    the UPS doesn't work, trash it and search for another at a garage sale.
    The older APC's are pretty well built and bulletproof. I have a vintage
    1200VX that can run forever. It is on its third set of batteries. Expect
    2-3 years on the batteries for the older units which actually packed
    some high capacity batteries.

    APC will not supply any type of service information to outside service
    people.

    About 95% of the time, failures are from defective batteries. Replace the
    batteries, and chances are that the UPS will function properly. We have been
    using APC UPS's for a fair number of years. We are on their third set of
    batteries. We replace all the batteries about every 3 years.
