i use a nikon SB600, and is also a newbie, but a few things for consideration.

1. check your batteries has power and the flash indicator lamp lights up.

2. ensure the hotshoe is properly connected (and lock it)

3. make sure the exposure mode is correct. you can try to switch to manual, aperture or shutter priority, they should all work...

4. can also try to test and press the "flash" button, and it should flash on its own whether or not it is attached to a camera.

if it does not power on and does not flash, maybe the thing you bought is faulty.
