You have to set it up for each cell. You need to program LiPo type, Cell count, capacity (mAh), and charge rate (use 1C or less).

So i balance each cell 1 by 1 ?? What does the c mean -->> (1c or less)
C means how fast it's charged. 1C is widely known as a safe level of charging. Theoretically it should take 1 hour.

On a 1000mAh battery, a 1Amp (1000mA) charge current means 1 C. For your 850mAh, charge at 0.8 Amps, which is less than 1 C.

And to balance, plug the small plug of the LiPo into the charger, and look for an option where it says Balance.
