First thing, make sure that the battery is making contact in the camera. Sometimes small bumps can break the (typically) plastic locking mechanism that holds the battery in. If that is not the problem, then the fall probably jarred something loose internally. My guess would be a connection between the battery and the main circuit board has broken off. Unfortunately, if this is the case, you're probably looking at a pretty expensive repair. You can probably either send it in to Canon (should be information that came with your camera on where to send it), or take it to a local camera store that may repair cameras or know of a place that does fairly locally. I see that this camera came out about a year ago, so your reaching the point where it might be cheaper to buy a new one (typically closer to 18 months). You'll have to do some research to decide this for yourself (I trust cnet.com for reviews, and no, I'm not in any way affiliated with cnet) One other note, occasionally when we send cameras out for repair to the companies, if there's no visible damage, then they will sometimes repair it under warranty, and then the person is only charged shipping to send the camera out. Not saying it'll happen for you, but you might get lucky. Good luck, and I hope it works out for you.
