Why can't I get my Baterry Back up to work?

I bought this power supply about 3 months ago and have never got it to work. I don't know what I am doing wrong but I have left it plugged into the wall the entire time so I know the battery is fully charged.

When I turn the power on I get 1 audible beep and then it shuts down.

I am in need of advice on either blowing up this POS or understanding what MY major malfunction is.

it sounds like a surge or wire issue with the wall.

I would start with getting a wall plug tester and see if the wiring is at fault.
After that i would get a good multmeter and check the voltage coming from the wall.
it should not be getting more that 125 and no less that 119. It more or less.
call a repair person out.

Oh what brand is the ups.

I did the next best thing based on your suggestions. I plugged this fat ugly box into a different wall socket and it works.

Awesome, thank you
