«Uninterruptible Power Interrupted»

My UPS failed. It wasn't even during a power outage. At least my computer wasn't on at the time.

Basically, the thing thinks it's in constant overload, even though there's nothing plugged into it. It wasn't an internal short in the battery, I tried a different battery I know to be good. My dad and I tore it apart, and the best we can figure is a relay failed.

So, I have to order a new one. I'll order an identical unit. It was an APC Back-UPS RS 1500. Good unit, we have 2 others in the household (along with the extra battery packs for them).
