I bought this camera out-of-box because it was cheap and I needed something to toss around in my backpack.. problem is, I did a test-run of a roll of Ilford B&W film (film type really irrelevant, I think).

Flash doesn't work; no pictures. None of the film was exposed.. no, I didn't have the lens cap on

Took it to the guy who sold me the camera, he fiddled with it, and got the flash to work and.. ta da. I haven't tested out any cheap film yet but.. Has anyone else had problems with this camera?
