I had a similar issue with one of my packs this week. One cell came up 0.0 on my CTXD2. I was able to put three cycles through it while at the track, and the cell did come back to life, and was able to hold a good charge & voltage after the 2nd cycle.
Just becuase the cell shows 0.0V does not always mean they are dead, but cycling them might not bring them back to life either. It is hit and miss sometimes.
Another way to check to see if the cell is truely dead, even after cycling the pack, is to charge it through a CTXD2, if you have one. If that cell shows higher voltage than the rest of the pack when charging, it is either weak or dead, and should be replaced. If you do try the above method, make sure you hook up your CTXD to a seperate
power supply than the charger.
