SOURCE: jammed film advance lever
There is a capacitor that goes bad in the X series. You can find them on eBay. A simple soldering job. It is in the bottom of the camera, accessible by removing the bottom cover. (4 screws)

Return the camera for an exchange or refund.
All Holgas are very badly made (which is why they produce the unpredictable image results that they're currently fashionable for) and it's not uncommon for them to be faulty from new. Also, don't expect the camera to last for more than about 12 rolls of film before it breaks: Holga specifically state that as an expected model lifespan on many of their model instructions and on some models they limit is even lower.

SOURCE: The sprocket gear spool on
This sprocket can be JAMMED/ STRUCK OR the link broken/damaged within the drive to the motor as it MUST MOVE ALONG WITH the movement of the take up wheel.
Normally the motor drive couples the drive to the take wheel and to the winding sprockets. You will need to open the mechanism on the base of the sprocket to get access to the fault. Sometimes just a reset can change the fault. Use a degreasing spray WD40 into the ends of the sprockets and manually try to move the sprockets to both sides. ALso without loading any film , activate the switch on the door - door lock- to make the take up wheel and sprockets to turn. Assisting them might make it free , if not you will need to open the motor drive section and the gears on the base of the sprockets. Use of good tools with care and makeing a note of what is done is improtant to remove and reset this section. If some parts are damaged you will need genuiene spares.
