Question about Canon EOS Rebel T2 35mm SLR Camera
We have a new EOS Rebel T2. Within a few days the batteries were dead. While we were sure the camera had been shut off we gave it the benefit of the doubt and purchased new batteries (lithium 3v CR2- cost with tax $36.12! These were installed and we made sure that the camera was in the OFF position. Within 10 days we wanted to use the camera and the new batteries were dead!!! It seems to us that the camera is somehow causing the batteries to drain. What could be the problem? What can we do? Sincerely, Roger and Lenore Andrew
Get it serviced to find out if it is repairable or only insert battery to use then remove when not in use

What type of batteries did you buy?
For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.
If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.
Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

I have found some variation in how long the CR2 batteries are. You might try bending the negative contact up to give more pressure against the battery.
