Re: Drains my batteries too quickly
I would purchase new set of rechargeable batteries(good brand because they are cheap) and see if the batteries were going bad. If the problem still persist, 4600 main circuit is not good. Time to reward yourself with brand new digital camera.

The problem is most likely the type of batteries you are using. Make sure they are rechargable. Normal batteries are not
strong enough. Try using either rechargable Lithium Ion batteries, or
rechargable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These are much
stronger and should give you a good battery life. If you are already
using these, I suggest you take it back to where you bought it. Hope this helps, Gillian
Does your camera gave a small battery in place somewhere that is used to maintain the date and time settings? (it is generally a watch battery type small flat silver disk.) You should not have to reset time and date after each battery change.
Many digital cameras eat up batteries quickly, especially when using the flash alot., that is why it is important to use good quality rechargeables whenever possible.
Rechargable batteries actually do not recharge the 100 times advertised. After maybe 10 times they are reduced in capacity noticably. For instance, new alkaline batteries will last me maybe 60 pictures, however the rechargables are only good for about 5. To test this try taking out the batteries, and put back in before you wish to try them, also turn off the flash if it is not needed.(flash uses a lot of power)
Inferior batteries from a dodgy site on E-bay -at a guess
Sport out on some regular batteries.
Shooting in brief mode I would think takes a larger whack out of the batteries than ordinary shooting I would imagine.
What are the pictures of?
Hi. I bought a used A70 that had that problem. I disassembled the outer body panels and found that a base panel assembly screw was too long, and was touching the LCD's ground cable, at the cable's tip. I changed the screw for a shorter one and it was settled. It never happened again.
