Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Dropped my Nikon D50 and now it shows there is no SD card in it and the battery indicator is flashing. Nothing appears on the LCD - including the menu. I've taken the SD card out and the battery and reinserted, but it won't take pictures.
