I had an APC die the same way.  After spending a bunch of time
troubleshooting it, I got frustrated and bought a Cyberpower that has
worked without issue for three years.  I have another 1000VA APC and if it
fails the same way I will probably replace it with a Cyberpower and feel
lucky if I get more than 5 years out of it.
