Need more info, but it sounds like you owe your buddy a new LiPo.

if its the carger telling you it has LOW VOLTAGE, then you can charge it by setting it to charge Nimh at 2 amps.. just for a couple of minutes, thats should raise the voltage enough to charge normally with a balancer charger..

i know, you said so already, but if the cells are under 3 volts each the LIPO charger will NOT start to charge them.. ERGO you have to get the voltage up on the cells.. by charging as a nimh..

one of you have either run the battery without a lipo cutoff or you might have shorted it by mistake at some point.. or worse using a charger without a balancer..
