If you dropped it it will probably be an easy fix. Just openup the unit and look for a crack in the cicuit board. This is the case 99 percent of the time in apliance drops. If you find a crack in a board simply epoxy it and on the cicuit side of the board solder jumper wires from point a to point b when you follow the boken trace(s). If more than one trace is broken repeat the process until all the circuits can be repaired. Make sure you use wire of a high enough rating to handle the current the trace handles, and also use wire with heat resistant insulation in this application.
First things first though. Just open it up and have a look. The plug to the heating element may have just been knocked off. With a little trouble shooting skills and a good look you should be able to see your problem. If you get it open and see something I did not tell you how to fix just post any question you have and I will answer them for you.

Inside the iron is a piece of thermal metal the is supposed to make contact with a small ceramic pin with a metal cap on it. I think this was intended to be a safety device but they fail and the iron will not heat up. The part does not seem to be available so easiest way to fix is to put a small bead of glue on the housing that forces this to make contact.

Have you tried descaling it? It may well be blocked up with limescale. Personally I only ever buy cheap irons and bin them when they go wrong! As you say-they are generally too expensive to repair.

On the Rowenta DX8750 Professional model you fill the water tank, set on high, and HOLD the steam level lever all the way over to the right (where it says "self clean"). I did not see the info on the internet anywhere (not even in an online manual I found - my husband pointed it out to me.
You have to hold the lever over the entire time, it won't stay in that position so you almost have to use two hands. Pick the iron up hold it as you would ironing and rock it back and forth bottom to top. It's good to have a cloth under the iron so the yucky stuff doesn't get on your ironing board. I rocked it, and then would lift it nearly vertical and flakes of yuck would come out in the steam, and browinish yucky stuff would come out of the steam holes - just clean that off the sole plate when cool.
