Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera
Use quality 2000+ NiMH batteries and sand your contacts a little. Most of the time, low current output of the batteries can be attributed to poor contacts, like your car not starting unless you jiggle the battery post.

I've posted this elsewhere on this site but I can't find a simple way of linking directly to it, so I'll repeat it here: ================================= The powere switch is part of the mode dial assembly. Mode dial repair kits are often listed on eBay. Don't try the repair yourself unless you have some experience in dismantling (and more importantly re-assembling!) modern cameras - although given that getting an "official" repair is probably not economic it may be worth the risk. There are instructions for replacing the dial here http://myolympus.org/5050/modedial/ It's really not that difficult but patience and good eyesight are needed.

SOURCE: camera batteries drain quickly
Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.
