Good voltage, low capacity after charging?

I have a several 2S LiPo and Lipo/Li/FE batteries that have been in storage and I am now recharging them for use. After the charging is complete, the capacity still remains around 5% - 10%. Can anyone tell me what is wrong and how to develop full capacity?

    What end voltage are you getting once rested after charging?

    Does your charger show how many mA has been 'put' into them?

    I have experienced similar problems with the Turnigy 1700 Mah packs. I have seven packs that apparently lose 20-25 percent of capacity a few hours after charging and one pack that ballooned after charging but strangely held 95 percent charge (it's now discharging in a bucket of saltwater).
    I've ruled out any problems with the battery checker or charger as have several other similar 2000 Mah packs from another manufacturer that have been in storage for at least a year and haven't dropped any capacity at all.
