Could it be that they said it was too expensive to repair?
Anything can be repaired but not always below the cost of a new one.
If this is what they told you it might be due to a main board failure, which really is too expensive to repair.
A 40cm fall does not normally cause this much damage though?
Is there any damage to the casing of the camera?
Can you see the lens unit trying to move inside when you switch it on?
Have you tried resseting the camera at the button located in the batttery compartment?
Does the camera make the welcome sound at all?
Answer these questions and I might beable to to give you more help.
