You may be able to fix it yourself if you can find a replacement screen, and you have some basic experience and are comfortable with electronics. Usually there's no soldering involved, with replacement merely requiring unplugging and reinserting the screens ribbon cable in it's connector. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement:
The easiest way to get rid of the date time stamp with a broken lcd screen is to do a mual reset of the camera, which can be done by
1. turn of camera
2. remove memory card
3. remove battery and make sure the ac power cord is not connected.
4. you need to press the reset switch which is located above the battery slot. To do this you need to get a paper clip and straighten it and push the straighted end into reset switch until the switch is depressed.
5. reinsert the battery.
6. after you verify that the camera works without the optional memory card reinsert the memory card.
the factory setting default does not have the date/time stamp activated.
I think you have broken (accidentaly with the fall) the cable with several wires that connect the LC display.
My real advice is that you take your camera to a store were they can give you direct support desmanteling the camera and replacing the cable or fixing it.
