Question about Cameras
Olympus AFL - "point and shoot" 35mm camera. I believe the battery may be dead, but know nothing about the camera as I have just inherited it. Told the Olympus no longer do the lithium cells necessary, but others have solved this in the past.

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.

The type of batteries that you use will make a difference. You didn't specify what type of batteries that you've been using. If you haven't been using lithium batteries, I would try some of those. You can find them anywhere they sell batteries. They're the energizer e2 ones. Usually in a blue package. They're a little more expensive than the regular alkaline ones, but they're better for digital devices and they'll last a lot longer.

Yes, there is definitely a fault with your camera. You should be able to return it for a replacement. I wouldn't experiment too much with batteries in this camera. batteries discharging this quickly are likely to overheat, causing unmentionable catastrophe.

I get exactly the same with my *ist DL2 periodically. It doesn't happen every time but often enough to be irritating.
Sometimes taking the batteries out and putting them back in a different order fixes it - sometimes it doesn't.
Often If I put them in and then leave the camera for a few minutes before switching it on - that generally works. (but then again.......
I wish I knew the definitive answer.
