The batteries need to have water added to the proper level, then recharged. You might get lucky and they hold a charge and operate normally. If they still don't work, you need to disconnect each one and test them individually with a tester that will put a load on them. Sometimes only one battery is bad and it will bring down the whole pack. The batteries in the picture are connected in series (red to black) that will give 24 volts. The specs for the Magnum machine say the charger is 24 volts, so the batteries would need to be connected in 2 series pairs, then those pairs connected in parallel. How they are connected is irrelevant, just service them, charge them, then load test them individually.
