My pre-school age neice just loves to use one-time-use cameras. Surprising in the age of point and shoot digital viewing. But she seems to love it way better than digital. I've never before tried the Jazz products version but .. in light of the fact that it's flash only fired 3 times- may never again.
These cameras when taken apart actually have a AA battery inside for the flash. If the camera has been on the shelf for a long time then you may have old battery. Check the date on the camera and be sure that is at least two years past current.

The C11 sold in such tiny numbers for such a brief time that even Leica themselves may have trouble replacing the rubberised back panel with an original part, but if anyone does have the ability to locate the part it's them. The other problem is that the original part was clearly an unstable compound, so spares may have degraded as well or may soon start to degrade once fitted to your camera. Leica would normally have revised this part once they were aware, but as there are so few C11's in existence the retooling costs would be uneconomical to remanufacture the part.
Good luck, and I sincerely hope that I'm proved wrong!.
Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.
Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.
I am having exactly the same problem (I have a T550). On the last film I shot, the only way to advance the film was to pull the battery out and re-insert it every time. When I printed that film, all the frames are blank!
Kodak's FAQ about "clearing the logic" suggests a solution for that problem.
1. Turn camera off
2. Pull battery out
3. Turn camera on
4. Click the shutter approximately 6 times
5. Turn camer off
6. Repeat step 4
7. Reinstall battery
I just tried that but the problem persists. I am now going to leave the battery out for several hours; maybe this will help. Otherwise, well it is time to bite the bullet and buy a digital !
