When it's plugged in, nothing comes up. I suspect (now) that my picam is bad...

note:
Those ribbon plugs might be tricky: tried every (sane) way to fit the ribbon firmly in?

@arfon

I was considering buying one of those Raspberry Cameras myself some time ago, but due to the price/quality I choose normal USB cameras.

I'm not sure what your problem actually is but I suppose you haven't enabled that camera in /boot/config.txt

Here are some hints I collected a while ago:

And, this one might be also of interest:
