    What do the individual cells read. Could be a dead cell.

    the charge should read 4.2 to 4.3 on each cell when fully charged.

    It wont charge past 3.7 or 4.2??

    When you put it on the charger, does it charge at all IOW the lights should be blinking in sequence on the batteries. When they are fully charged they will stop and go off.

    When you put the battery in the P3 and connected it with the controller , the battery telemetry screen should show full charge which is 4.2 to 4.3 for each cell.
    Take a couple of photos and post them so we can see what is happening.

    Sounds like the Smart Battery circuit needs recalibrating. how many flights do you have on the battery?
