Hi. When you charged it up, did the battery indicator lights on the control panel light up?
If you take the batteries to a battery shop, they can some times get the batteries to take a charge.
I have had a few batteries that have been sitting for a long time, what I do is charge them seperately for a few seconds on 24 volts. A quick charge of 24 volts across a 12 volt battery will sometimes break down the sulphate that builds up on the internal plates of the battery. Once you have done this. charge the battery properly, and then discharge it, ( you can use a light bulb ).
Charge and discharge the batteries 5 or 6 times over the next few days. This will hopefully let the batteries take enough charge to let someone try out the machine. The batteries will not be as good as new ones, but if you are donating the machine, they could buy their own batteries.
Make sure that when you are working with batteries, you use good safety rules, batteries are dangerous, and will give of hydrogen gas, which can explode. If in doubt about your abilities, get the battery shop to charge them for you.
Good luck. Neil.
