    The camera indicated no batteries despite having loaded fresh ones so it was not receiving any power to work. I sent the camera in to Olympus and their
    website indicated it would cost $159.00 to fix it. I have requested a
    description of the problem before I decide whether or not I will
    approve the repair.

    This happened after what appeared was a successful firmware upgrade (upload from Olympus web site). Replaced the batteries too. I have requested a diagnosis before I authorize a $162 repair charge.

I had the same problem. I sent the camera in to Olympus and their website indicated it would cost $159.00 to fix it. I have requested a description of the problem before I decide whether or not I will approve the repair. I will post that information when I am notified. Seems like a lot--nearly half the price of the camera.

My camera wont power on


It sounds like your batteries are dead? Try new batteries and if it still won't turn on you will need to contact a repair shop.

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:

My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I


if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.

When I turn my digital camera on it turns off immediately. Why?


Try connecting your camera to the computer while the battery is out, i know that your camera support USB charging, then turn on the camera while conencted to the computer, if the camera turn on it means the battery is no longer working. And if still wont turn on, maybe there something wrong with the camera. Call kodak for assistance. or visit www.kodak.com/go/itg for online troubleshooting.

It wont turn on i tried charging the battery to see if it was dead but it wasnt the battery it wont turn on!


Are you sure it is dead or is it simply that liveview is not showing? A friend of mine thought hers was dead the other week but liveview was turned off. Try taking a few photos and see if it actually takes them?
