What happens to total stations after about 1 or 2 years in storage without ever been turned on during that time? I have two in perfect condition prior to storage but now both wont take distance measurements..Anyone? TIA

What is the store condition? How far is the carrying case reliable? Does the battery attached during storage?
Storage condition is good (dry), carrying case in good condition (no cracks), battery was not attached to the unit during storage.
