Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera
I can help you understand what is going on with your problem, but it is a problem you should not try and fix yourself. When your camera hit the dirt, it probably broke the shutter mechanism.
The symptom you mentioned with the black pictures means that the shutter (allows light to the medium) is not moving.
When you take a picture, the shutter moves very fast. It is what regulates how long light hits the medium (regular cameras, it's film, in digital cameras, it's the ccd.)
Bottom line, your going to have to take it to an authorized repair shop for the make of your camera. Probably be around $200. to repair. Sorry for the bad news. Let me know what you think in a comment if you want, and thanks for coming to FixYa. Feel free to rate my answer.
