Have you tried to do this in the manual mode?

You'll need to set the type of battery, # of cells, discharge current, etc.

Are you removing the pack from the radio or are you trying to do it through the charger jack? If you are doing it through the jack, they can't be discharged that way because of a diode in the radio.
