How to boost up a Futaba 14MZ Tx battery when below limit?
For some reason one of the Tx batteries have discharged to much and cannot longer be "recognized" by the Futaba charger, it just indicates failure, the actual voltage are now 5.4v ive tried with other charger to force in some more power for a couple of minutes to boost it up again, but all of the chargers are to smart to fool it that way...

Any good tip on how to work around this?
Its barely used, so i dont want to throw it away because of that

Are you using the 'camcorder' charger that came with the radio or another Futaba charger?
The normal charger should go ahead and kick it up.

Yes, thats correct, the camcorder charger, i have also the direct plug in to the rear charger cable, but anyway you look at it, most chargers will detect somethings not normal.
The camcharger starts flashing that yellow led after 5 secs, that indicates fail.

Maybe connect the other parallel with this and the working one, but then again, it will not add up when it starts calculating cells and type

You may have had a cell go bad. This does happen. I lost a cell in one of my lipo flight packs a couple of weeks ago. That was an interesting auto. I also have a li/on receiver pack that will charge full then when you put a voltmeter on it with a load, it drops down to the 'no fly' range. Again bad cells. Maybe an email to Futaba service is in order.Team Synergy/Rail, Team Scorpion, YS Engines, VelTye
