Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Very often, when equipment is signaling for a battery change... it needs a new battery!
In March 2011, I subscribed to the Verizon Vios bundle, TV, computer, and telephone. No wireless connection. A router was installed in a box outside my house and another part on the wall in back of my computer. Two green lights are always on. Last week, I noticed that there is also a steady red light that says, "Replace Battery," and I get a short beep about every half an hour. What do I do?
In this excerpt from Answercast #49, I look at some internet equipment that is signaling for a battery change.
Well, unfortunately, my flip answer is to say, "Replace the battery."
The light is pretty clearly telling you what needs to happen. My assumption is because you're asking this question, it's not something that you can do or that you're comfortable doing. In which case:
If this is a piece of equipment that was provided by Verizon as part of the internet connection that they're giving you;
I would contact them and ask them what to do.
It is very likely that it could be a very simple replacement.
A very simple battery replacement.
And it may not impact you at all other than the beeping every half an hour while the battery is in need of replacement.
On the other hand, it could be very important. So without knowing the specific equipment that Verizon uses (and I just don't), I would have you give your ISP a call and let them know that this is what's happening.
They will instruct you what to do. My guess is they will probably tell you
replace the battery.
