turnigy mega 400w

Hi guys i got a turnigy mega 400w charger ,first time i used it to balance a 3000mah 6 cell it was spot on all cells the same great i thought, then just now i did a balance charge and it said cell 1 was 2.41 ... 2 was 4.09 and so were the other cell , so i pulled battery off and plugged the batter tester in and that said cell one was 4.09 and the other cells were 4.20
What the hell is going on ?

Possibly just a bad contact on one pin of the balance connectors -- either where they plug into the charger, or where the battery plugs in. Try removing and re-inserting a couple of times and see if it then reads the correct voltages.

As abenn said. I found that with my PL8 as well. Dirt / dust on the connectors is the cause.
