Default How can I save my old Olympus C750?

My trusty Olympus C-750 runs out of (fully charged 2700mA) batteries in just few hours, even NOT having any use (taking photographs, using the menu etc).
Is there somewhere an internal battery to change? Something else I can do?
Olympus say it is not worth to repaor it...!

alexander-

The long and short of it is simply this: it sounds like your battery is failing and needs to be replaced.

Thank you for your answer, Sarah, but you didn't understand.
The batteries are brand new, fully charged, but next morning (or afternoon, ok) they are empty, even though I didnot take any picture. As if 'something is working' while the camera is off, and all settings are reset to default (time, program, date etc).
Maybe there is an internal batery that needs to be replaced, but there is NO obvious place that this batery is located.

kibaris-

That is exactly what I needed to know. There is an internal short in the camera that will be expensive to fix. I would not waste my time, money or patience chasing after a problem that will take total camera disassembly.

Thank you, Sarah, that's what I supposed, but I just asked the foroum, you never know, a small hidden screw that reveals the flat internal battery...!
