Need replacement circuit boards for APC UPS systems

Where can I get replacement circuit boards for APC UPS systems or have circuit boards repaired?  I need boards for a BR1500 and a BX1000.

Thank you

I just checked and found one without the battery for $19.99 plus shipping. You couldn't buy  a replacement board cheaper than that.

It looks like it's hard to find anything else but batteries.

You might also give APC a call.

You might also give Amazon or eBay a try.

Thank you for your reply.  APC does not provide replacement boards.  There were a couple on e-bay, but not for any of the models that I have.  Fortunately, my RS 1500 apparently had an intermittent problem / loose internal connection as it did come back to life.  I was able to get a replacement model (BR1500G) that can take the auxiliary battery pack.  I have that running on one of my Linux PCs using a combination of apcupsd and GKrellM to provide the equivalent of APC's PowerChute software.

Looks like someone is missing a chance to make money on replacement circuit boards.

I agree. Unless their boards fail so infrequently there isn't any real money to be made by stocking them.

I'd look on ebay. If you can't find one, it's probably better to just replace the UPS. I've used APC for about 15 years for desktops and servers. Their quality and support is normally very good. Sometimes the tech you speak to on their support line could use more experience. That's where I take over and read the manual.

Normally after using it for a while and getting into the advanced configurations, you know more than they do.

Hope this helps!
