You will be able to help diagnose the problem by pulling fuses. Take a volt meter and put it to oms. Disconnect the positive battery cable. Put one end on the positive battery termanal and the other on the cable. Note the oms. Now, pull one fuze at a time until the oms drop considerably lower than before you pulled the fuzes. Thats the system that is drawing the power. Once you know the system you can track it down further. It could also be your altrenator. Disconnect it too and measure the oms before and after. take your time and do one system at a time noting the oms before and the oms after. My quickest guess it it is either your altrenator or your radio. Please note, you will have some "draw" no matter what because your clock radio or door lights will draw power. If you want to see this, test the oms with the doors closed and then test with the door open. The oms number will be higher with the door open.
If you don't have a volt meter, you can always test one fuze at a time over night. That would take considerably longer tho.
The biggest clue is that you're having to take action to save the batteries. High battery consumption is a a classic sign of a faulty circuit board in this camera. Unlike most regular OM-4's, the OM-4ti generally had an improved circuit board fitted from new which was made available as a warranty repair item on regular OM4's, but you may have an early one.
The faulty circuit board manifests in other ways, most commonly the dead display/non functioning shutter except for the mechanical default speed. I've heard of the screeching fault as part of this problem but have not personally encountered it.
The fault is irrepairable as replacement boards are fashioned of finest unobtanium; the same faults affect the OM-2sp as well. This is exactly why both cameras are now available far more cheaply as used buys: potential buyers who know these models are aware that they're taking a gamble.
There is a revision marking on the "good" boards but it's largely academic. Anyone with a "good" OM4 rarely sells it, and even the revised boards are old enough to have started deteriorating by now.
Hello...there is most probably a defective switch on the camera...If you are facing the front of the camera, on the camera body, to the right if the lens is the meter button.(near the flash pc socket) Also, you can check the condition of the batteries by pressing the shutter button half way down. If you see a red or green light, the batteries are good. If not, replace them *both* with silver oxide.
