I dropped the camera this morning & now it wont turn on at all. I am just sick. Help! It fell on the top edge by the zoom button. When I picked it up, the side door (usb input etc.) was open. I tried to charge up the battery & that didnt work either. I called Lumix/Panasonic & they are helpless. They told me that I can send the camera in to be replaced for 175.00. I may as well just get a new camera.
