Hello Experts,

     Well over night our power went out and all the servers crashed as it was around 1am.  We have 4 APC Smart-UPS 3000 XLM devices each with the extra battery pack. When the power came back on I powered each one up and all have come up fine and started charging again except one.  It has the green online LED on but the Battery Meter keeps flashing.  I can get power from the device.  I logged on to the device and it says Discharged, No Other Alarms Present.  How can I get this device to start charging properly?

How old are the batteries?

Usually if the Battery Meter flashes, it's warning that current charged capacity of the batteries cannot meet the load attached, if power should fail.

Usually happens, after a long drain, before batteries are fully charged again.
