A week does not sound right. I know that the TTL has a reputation for eating
batteries, but on mine I do not bother putting it in the OFF position, I
just make sure that the film is not wound on before putting it down in the
bag. I have had it for several months now and have not had to change
batteries yet.

I seem to remember that there was an early batch of TTLs that had this
battery consumption problem. You may want to search the archives for this.
