Return it if you can. Unless the lenses are worth more than the body.

What model is it -- is it a Rex or Reflex, or is it a non-reflex? If
it's a non-reflex, and one of the lenses was not a 10mm Switar, you
paid too much at $100.

Always buy cameras that you have a 5 or 10 day return privilege on to
do a real film test. I once bought a mint 8mm Bolex projector and it
had no pulldown claw! It would have cost more to return than it was
worth (bought cheaply) but you have to be careful.

$100 is a lot, but as a lesson it's not as bad as it could be.

Good luck to you.
