Take a tea spoon of 2 cycle oil and pour it into the cyclinder, do not put the spark plug back in, cycle the piston a few times to get the oil around the rings and on the cylinder. It's messy, cover it with a rag or something. Now check your compression, if it hasn't come up....

Well, it's a judgement call if you want to spend more money and time on them. You could buy a new one for what the parts could add up to....
