If it is a new camera, it is strange it switches off so quick. On the other hand, alkaline batteries are not the best choice.
You better use NiMH rechargeable, because they can keep up a high voltage longer. Always us batteries from the same batch. Never mix batteries from different sort, like NiMH and alkaline.
NEVER Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They should be in a flash light. They don't have enough capacity and can leak easy.
Always check the contacts on the batteries are clean and shiny. (Also the contacts in the camera. You can clean contacts with a dry cloth or cotton swabs.
If it is a brand new camera, and it won't work as expected, bring it back to the shop.
That sounds like your battery could be dead/not hold a charge. If you've charged your battery already and your camera still won't stay off and turns off right away, it's time to purchase a new battery for your Samsung TL105.
Have you tried to see if the battery door is completely shut? This is usually the problem with many digital cameras with batteries. Clean the battery door and where the battery touches the metal of the door. Check to see if the door is completely flush with the camera body when you close it. I know for a fact that Vivitar cameras **** the juice out of batteries fairly quickly also. If you have the USB-cord provided with the camera, plug it into your computer and see if that holds a charge to your camera. If all else fails, call up Vivitar for further inquiry, your battery may be dead.
Try using a different type of battery (not meaning *brand). Many newer digital cameras will only operate properly with high alkaline batteries vs other types. I was having the same problem with my Sony cyber-shot and found out that I had been using the wrong KIND of batteries all along. Hope this post was helpful to you.
OK, here's the answer. You won't find it anywhere else, but here it is.
If you use rechargable batteries, you MUST use ones with a respectable capacity. 2000mah are probably not enough. You need 2400mah at least. Yes, it doesn't make much sense, in the the battery capacity is supposed to reflect how long they'll last. But the wimpy batteries just won't let this camera turn on.
I have some experience with different battery capacity in this camera, and it took some aggravation to figure this out. But I'm pretty sure this is the answer.
The higher capacity batteries are more expensive, and their hold time is probably not as good. But I get a reasonable amount of usage with them.
