SOURCE: broken flash
okay my holga flash was broken too....the batteries were working just fine cus when i turned it on, the little back light came on and the whining sound happened, but then click...no flash! so i took the back off and made a small repair and it worked!
so this is how to fix it (if its the same problem...i.e. everything electrical is working but the actual flash):
use a small screwdriver to remove the two small screws inside the camera (take out the frame and they are on the bottom and top). the front will pop off and you should be able to see the wiring.
where i circled in red was the problem. that curved metal piece at the bottom was too straight and was not making contact with the shutter (the top little metal prod sticking outta the circle) when i clicked it. so just bend it forward to how it looks in the picture...then do a practice click to make sure it makes contact. you can even try it with the batteries in, but be careful!! its electricity!
hope this helps!!

The flash would fire as per the requirement, in auto mode.
If the ambient light is enough then the flash will not fire.
In case you need to use the flash in bright conditions (e.g. For using as a fill flash) please repeatedly press the flash button (The one with the lightning symbol on it) till you get a lightning bolt symbol on the camera display.
Now your flash will fire on every shot that you click!
Please ensure that you revert back to the Auto mode once done.
If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.
I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

SOURCE: how do I upload pictures
This is a film camera, you cannot download from it. You need either a film/slide scanner or a regular scanner to scan in the pictures themselves. Sorry.
