Re: dropped camera now it will not power up or anything...
You probably blew a fuse. Maybe the lens jammed and the motor could not overcome the jam so it shut itself down to protect itself. I dropped my first camera, under AMEX warranty and it came back with 3 fuses repaired, no physical damage-just wouldnt turn on.

Just a wild thought.. I have an Olympus camera that quit working after I'd dropped it on the sidewalk. I found a suggestion on the internet that I remove the battery totally from the camera... then re-install the battery. It worked!! By removing the battery, it reset something in the camera. I was pretty happy.
Very odd that both cameras would stop working at the same time, has someone else abused them?
Removeing the batterys for a while is a good enought reset, check the battery connectors and contact your dealer if they both have warranty you will get them repaired or replaced for free. other than that I can recommend you a repair man if you provide me the city you live in.
If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that
is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your
may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
The problem you describe is
frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove
the batteries and wipe the inside contacts firmly with a dry cloth
(heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or
sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery
compartment during cleaning, wipe the ends of the batteries, and
replace them in the camera. This cleaning process works about 90% of
the time, and I hope that it cures your problem.
Turning on may have killed it.
however try this.
Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open
Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth.
put the camera in and seal the bag.
leave in a warm dry place for several days
This may save it -or it may not.
