Question about Samsung Cameras
SOURCE: Samsung camcorder
Although my question might sound stupid, but did you charge the battery? The camera should be having a li-ion battery, which does not retain its charge for long(a week or so) which gives the battery a longer life.
If this is not the problem, could you explain the "ticks like a clock" in detail.
I could also be due to the tape getting jammed.

You need to test the volts out from the charger with a MultiMeter,
to check if there is power coming out. Your battery may also be faulty, as pointed out from some other expert. In any case the suspect nr.1 remains the adapter.
About the warrantee, you have 12 moths from Samsung , it should be valid even if you register the item right now. Here are details about Samsung 12 months fabrig warrantee in UK. Contact Samsung in your area to get more details.

i am now facing the same problem but i found that i need to buy a mini DV cable to connect from the camera to the computer, the USB connection to the computer only allows you to transfer digital images from the camera that you have stored on the memory stick which you may not have inserted in the camera as the computer indicated to you

This is problem of MiniDV mechanism in camcorder that will be replaced to fix its issue.
I can provide you part number of required tape mechanism but replacement of that mechanism is job of qualified camera tech.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.

OK well when this happens it means that the special extra set of "Heads" that are used to play the hi 8 tapes is faulty and needs to be replaced. This is a common thing for these types of units. This is NOT a task for the uninitiated at all, it is a very difficult and fiddly task even for a professional.
So accordingly the best way to effect a repair is to get it done by a professional. You need to contact a Samsung head or local office and ask them for a referral to an authorised service center. Now make contact here and then when in face to face contact, then only first ask for a 'Quote" as to the costings of any prospective repairs and got from there?
