Sony Cyber-Shot S600 - rapid battery drain

by mcrasto / January 1, 2007 6:37 AM PST

I am using two regular AA batteries on my Sony DSC-S600 (Cyber-Shot 6.0)and if left in the camera, both bateries are completely dead in two days. It's been a pain having to remove the batteries every time I use the camera. Any advice?

Are a mal-function..
I once bought a CD-Player that drained my Batteries over-night..
I returned the Product and bought a JVC CD-Player..
..
I can leave my Re-Chargeables in my CANON A410 for two weeks and they work..for a good amount of time.
