The "plug n play" connector in the UPS can be just slightly off and impact one of the battery connector blades.

Try the following steps:

2.      Remove the battery

3.      In between the two batteries is the plastic connector

4.      Inside you will see two blades, with a needle nose plier gent pull up on each one

5.      Insert the battery, plug in the UPS, turn it on and wait for it to cycle on to battery and off 

6.      UPS should now be working properly
