Imax B6 charging problem!

Can any of you guys help me please?
I have a (genuine) imax B6 that's about 8 months old and since crashing my belt CP helicopter in July it hasn't been used.
I have just bought a Gaui 330X-S quadcopter and I have just tried to charge one of my batteries and as soon as I press and hold the start button to start the charge, it just goes back to the main start screen?

The battery is a 3 cell 11.v 2200mAh battery and I have selected a balance charge at 2.2A (actually it does the same thing on any setting and any type of charge).
Am I doing something wrong since it's been a while since I last used it as I am a newbie, or do you think I have a fault on my imax B6?

I have just done a video with my mobile phone (sorry for the quality) so you can see what I mean

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have tried to charge and to balance charge and neither work?
I do hold the start button for 3 seconds and as you can see from the video, when I press and hold it, it just goes back to the main screen!

Any other ideas?

Some of the guys in this thread seem to know quite a bit about the Imax maybe you could pm one of them with your question. I wouldn't ask your question in the tread itself people may see it as a thread hijacking. I am no expert but it sounds to me like your system may need a bios flash to make it operational again.

I am just a newbie asking for some help, how is that thread hijacking when I started to thread to ask for help?

Sorry if I am doing something wrong on the forum then?

He told you not to post in THAT thread he linked you to. Not in your own thread. The only thing you did wrong was misread a post of someone trying to help you out.

It looks from the video like your charger is broken.

VROOMSTER is right I think you misunderstood what I wrote I just didn't want the people in the other thread to give you a hard time if you sought their help.

I hope you fix your problem, good luck!
