The CompactFlash card may have caused the batteries to drain. Some solid state CompactFlash cards consume power while inserted in the FinePix S7000 even if the camera is turned OFF. Fujifilm recommends removing the CompactFlash card when the camera is not in use. Microdrives and xD-Picture Cards do not exhibit this problem.

SOURCE: fujifilm S3000 not turn on
Mine had with this problem....After checking everything I found some corrosion in the battery compartment so I cleaned the contacts at the bottom of the compartment and put a new set of batteries in...The camera started working again....DON'T leave batteries in if you are not using the camera >>>

The battery cover shorting isssue is well known and can short a battery, but it would seem unlikely that it will deplete them that fast, as it takes about a day to do so with a fresh battery pack.
Instead, I would suggest you have a close look at your battery compartment contacts. NiMH batteries can leak when they get old, which can cause contact corrosion. Once you get corrosion the voltage can drop below the cutoff point and voilà, short battery life syndrome. Cleaning the contacts with an eraser or, if really bad, with some fine sandpaper should solve this problem.
If you don't use your camera a lot, remove the rechargeables at least once a month to recharge them and put them back in to keep the backup battery recharged. If they feel greasy they are leaking, discard them. NiMH batteries, whether used up a lot or not rarely last more than a few years.

A possible cause could be the "cut off" switch for the xd picture card door. Check the plastic tabs on the door for damage. If it looks ok then open and close it a few times to see if the micro switch on the board is stuck. This is a cut off switch to prevent accidental removal of the picture card whilst the camera is powered up. The battery door may have 1 aswell so best to check this also. If there is damage then you maybe able to effect a repair to the plastic tab or replace the door. if the micro switch is damaged then you can bypass with either a solder bridge or wire. Have you put the batteries in correctly? - just an after thought....
