Default Team Orion Charger and lipo's

I have just made to move to lipo with a purchase of a track power 5400 lipo and a track power balancer. I hooked it all up (after reading the instructions) to my trusty Team Orion advantage charger. My charger keeps beeping and telling me to check the battery, If I hook the battery up without the balancer there isn't a problem. A good mate told me he is pretty sure I don't need a balancer with this charger, I no longer have my instruction manual and I cannot download one from team Orion's web site.
Can any one tell me if I need a balancer with the Team Orion Advantage? Or am I doing some thing wrong?
Regards,

Darrin

ok has the settings been set correct on the charger cc/cv

next are do you hold the button down on the balancer so the two >> arrows on the top right are lit up orange that would be the first things to check.

Did you press the balancer button for * seconds to activate the balancer charging inputs?
