similar problem - but there does not seem any solution.

If the fall has bent the camera's lens housing - then I think it is cheaper to buy a new camera than to get this repaired.

I suggest - take the camera to a local shop and explain the problem and see what they suggest - if they can repair, how much that would be - and then compare that with the cost of buying a new one.

Really feel sorry for you - I accidentally dropped my Lumix TZ5 - I am lucky that apart from dents and inability to close the lens cap, it seems to be working fine.

That was the first time I dropped any of my cameras (and I am taking pictures since 1986 . . .)
