Here is possible fix.
Understand and be warned that doing the following may damage the camera even more, but if it does not work, then it may be worth the try.
Get a towel, fold it and lay it on a table. With the camera turned off and at an angle so that it will hit on one corner, hit the camera on it's edge on the towel. Not too hard, but do it with enough pressure so that the camera may come back by shaking up the internal connections.
Try to turn it on again, try a couple more times if the first is not successful.
What this does is to cause the internal connections and parts be shaken to such a degree as to make possible connections work again.
You have (in my experiments) about a 30 percent chance that this will work and cause the camera to come back as it did before.
If this does not work, the camera is only good for parts or repair.
Possibly to be sold on a site such as Ebay as is or for parts or repair.
