I'm new to brushless but I've been doing good so far until I ran into a snag with this battery I tried to change the setup in my mamba monster esc to slow it down a little. After I changed the setting a lil I went to charge the battery the charger popped a code battery volt error. I was like wth happened
mamba monster esc
castle field link
venom 5000 flight pack 25c 14.8v 4cell

I started out with an older t-maxx converted to an e-maxx brushless
e-maxx long wheel base chassis

I had a battery error once. I bought a new hellaflopter (at a couldn't turn it down price), and didn't use it for a few years. When I did go to use it, I tried to charge up the battery. When I did, it gave me a battery voltage error. I found that the Lipo battery had bled voltage, and was under it's minimum. There is a chance that you may have changed your minimum discharge voltage setting for your Lipo battery in your ESC program. I would take a peek at that setting in your ESC program, because if that is the case, the battery can't be recovered safely.

What did you change to slow it down?? Are you using the balance board to charge?
You might have somehow drained the batt too low. Make shore the lvd is on and set right around 3.4v on the esc program.
i had the same problem but i had a 3s lipo and i charged it on a 2s lipo setting at 0.2 amps just to get the voltage up then i took it off and charged it at the normal setting. charger i used was a onyx 230 and a 3s 4000 onyx lipo. Make sure to keep an eye on the battery will its charging though.
thanks for your help BLING2940 I will try that tonight after work but I picked up two onyx 11.1v 5000 lipo
