I forgot about the UPS. I had assumed you had plugged it into the wall.
The UPS certainly is on the list, especially for an 'alarm'.

looks like the UPS battery and the 5061B draws too much
current....together.... just charge-up the UPS and when it is OK plug the
other unit in....
This is my first guess.

e lost power for several days after the hurricane last weekend. As a
recaution I pulled the AC plug for my 5061B from the UPS it's attached to
was pretty sure that we would be without power for a while and didn't want
ave the unit plugged in when the power came back in case there was a surge.
ower was restored on Tuesday but I only got around to powering up the system
hen I plugged it in, it immediately started making a buzzing sound -
ike an alarm. The system appears to be working normally otherwise - alarm
n, clock advancing, etc.
've never heard this buzzing before during power up.
ot knowing what the issue was, I powered the system down.
nyone have any clue before I start tearing it down?
TW - I don't see any mention of this in the manual.
hanks in advance.
