Hi, I am having some problem with my 6S lipo and I hope you will be able to tell me what's wrong with it.
I have a Hyperion 6S 2600mAH battery that stopped charging couple of weeks ago. When I try to charge it, the charger gives an error that number of cells selected for charging do not match with the battery. This suggests that the charges is only seeing five cells instead of six.

I checked the battery voltage and the output connector is showing 20.34V. Then I also checked the voltage of the individual cell at the balance connector (it has one red and six black wires) and here are the readings starting from the first black wire that is next to the red:

Wire 1: 4.06 volts
Wire 2: 8.16 volts
Wire 3: 8.14 volts (this is the wire seems to be coming from the short/non-functioning cell)
Wire 4: 12.20 volts
Wire 5: 16.27 volts
Wire 6: 20.34 volts

So the individual cell voltage for the working cells would be:
4.06 v
4.1 v
0.0 v
4.04 v
4.0 v
4.07 v

Could you please suggest what could be the problem after having these voltage readings?
