I just damaged my HOMAGE UPS

Remember my
I just burnt that UPS today :( It was my own mistake while reconnecting the cables I donot know what the hell was I thinking and forget to check the Positive and Negatives and a lot of smoke & smell came out of UPS below is the image after burning ...

Apparently it is the burnt transformer .... Any suggestion how to save money now while going for a repair?????

Take it to an authorised service centre, tell them the truth and hope for the best.

a couple of caps may also have blown..as long it is the transformer that got burnt, you can get it rewound or replaced.. shouldnt cost more than a few thousand at max.. if something in the board got fried, then it would be a bigger problem.

good repair person and repair shops depends on where you live...

Few thousand for repair?!!! Isn't a new one a few thousand?

few thousands means 1-3k.. depends on whether repaired or replaced.. new transformers are not cheap.

ASSALAMUALIKUM to all . It seem according to the image you posted that your ups didnt have primary side fuse . When you connected the battery in reverse polarity it created a dead short on chopper through mosfets . It could also have destroyed primary side chopper winding , but i thing it might have survived because it is wound using multi-strand winding wire . If your ups had fuse then most likely it can survive in situation like this .

I sent this UPS for repair after 2 months yesterday I received my UPS they charged me rs.1000 however there was a similar case where they charged him 3500 Rs it seems I got lucky, Support personnel at lahore office were so rude most specifically a beard guy nick name hafiz (a Taliban look alike) was at testing counter His behaviour was absolutely unbearable,
There was another customer who was charged Rs.7500 for a burnt UPS and again went offline after 12 hours, That guy was
almost crying other people were also not happy with UPS and I was feeling myself lucky at that time Homage customer service is pathetic they don't even tell you which parts are replaced Anyway thats the story for now



Another question I haven't charged my AGS 165amp battery for two months and its indicator which used to be blue now showing white what is that mean? do I have to do something which battery to get it back to its healthy state?

Yes, you need to charge it on higher voltage at a steady 10-12 amps rate for atleast 5-6 hours so it remains on float for a long time... then use them with your ups.. your local battery guy would be able to do that for you for a small amount..make sure he doesnot put it on over voltage....
