It could be that the battery itself is dead and is not accepting a charge. Try another battery, if not Try recharging it again overnight.

If a replacment battery still does not work there may be a fault with the camera. Make sure all the conectors in ths battery compartment are clean. If the camera was stored for a long time with the battery still in place you may need to take it in to a Canon dealer.

Hope that helps

Gopro charging problems flashing


GoPro battery dead. Won't charge in the camera. No charge light comes on when you connect the camera to a USB. There's the scenario. Good tip on the GoPro battery shocking technique posted by Rabscuttle above. I discovered that my vehicle USB cigarette lighter adapter drains the GoPro battery when it's turned off. With the GoPro battery completely dead, the camera will not charge it. If the GoPro battery voltage falls below a certain point, the camera's circuitry is set to turn off the internal charger as if there's no battery in the camera at all. The recommended solution is to buy an external charger, which is able to charge a completely dead battery. The battery shocking method saves that expense.

Connecting a 9 volt battery to the GoPro battery for 30 seconds can give the battery enough charge to allow the camera to recognize the battery. A 9 volt battery from a smoke detector, a pair of jumper leads, and two straight pins is what I used to get my GoPro battery charged enough to allow the camera to recognize the battery and begin charging.

My camera wont stay on it bleeps once then turns off


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.

You can purchase replacement batteries quite cheap here:

The light doesn't come on when the charger is plugged in to the camera, therefore I am unable to charge the battery and turn the camera on. Does this mean the battery is dead?


When the light does not come on while charging as you suggested might be the battery is dead but even when batteries die the indicator foe charging still comes on.
From a professional point of view i would say it is more likely the charger is spoilt this means the camera does not supply power to the unit.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Make sure that the mode switch on the cover is in the playback position. Unfortunately, I don't have a source for new switches.
