Will they still be usable in any way? What state will they be in now?

In fact a TV camera was salvaged from one but I do not know if any attempt was made to operate it.
The main interest was to see if any Earthly bacteria had survived on it as sterilization procedures were not very rigorous it being decided that the Moon was lifeless anyway.
When tested some were found to have survived.
