Unfortunately the lens assemblies in these compact digital cameras are quite delicate. The drop probably knocked the barrels of the lens out of alignment preventing it from moving. You can try to GENTLY twist the lens back and forth, you may be able to click it back into alignment allowing it to function normally. If the gentle manipulation fails to fix the problem you will need to get the camera serviced by a professional. There are quality repair services on the web who will work on your camera.

There is usually a button for turning the screen on and off, or only on for previewing (browsing images). (and sometimes there is an option for having the screen on without the On-Screen Display)
I don't know exactly which one on your camera... sometimes the up button, sometimes there is a little symbol.
Play with it, and eventually you'll find the right button. =-]

Is your battery pack genuine? Often non-genuine batteries wont charge correctly and have been known to burn or short out. If it is genuine however you should have the camera, charger and battery checked out by Canon for any potential shortages etc. Li-ion batteries can be dangerous to mess around with, be careful when pulling it apart.

I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.
You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.
