The reason is that CELL 3 is overdischarged. That's why NLBA even has color coding to draw user attention if something is wrong. In your case cell 3 is in orange color! Charge cell 3 to 3.6v like the other two cell groups and charging will be allowed. Recalibration is also needed since FCC is too high.

If you have new cells it's preffered to change them of course since these have already 313 cycles. Change the cells first and calibration comes after.

Well there is still a little deviation in cell 2 but it's not so bad. Try to fully charge it now.

The other test you can do is to let the cells relax for around 30min ans then start discharging with 2amps for around 20 seconds and post the results here so we can see the voltages under load. This is the best way to analyze cells condition.

Is your battery "c53C" ? There is no pinout for this battery, can you add it ?

1 & 3 are correct. 2 is incorrect since this battery doesn't have SYS pin.
