I have a Digimax 210 SE. I love this camera, but after about three years, the "BOOT" flashes, and won't go beyond that to take photos. I bought a new card, and it worked fine for about a month, then the same thing happened. (Cards work fine in the computer, all pictures come up etc., but camera won't accept the card.) All the pins inside there look fine. Someone told me to format the card, but it won't do that because it won't go beyond the flashing "BOOT". Batteries are fine. Any suggestions?

This means the flash or flash circuitry broke due to the drop. The camera will take pictures as long as the flash is not required. Only resolution is to have the camera repaired, which unfortunately may cost more than the camera is worth.
The eye flashing is normal when the flash is trying to charge up , if the batteries are healthy the camera won`t take a picture until the flash is charged fully.Try turning the flash off and see if the camera fires, get some higher rated rechargeable batteries (2000mah) or above this may resolve your problem.
I have three different digital cameras. I use the scanner and camera wizard to download my pics.
The second option, if you use SD card with your camera, then you can get a USB 2.0 SD Memory Card Reader/Writer.
When you dropped it one of the circuit boards inside may have cracked, or one of the connections may have severed. This could be potentially dangerous, since the flash circuit accumulates 300 to 500 volts! I would have it checked, but if it's not real new and/or under, say US$150-200, it probably won't be worth fixing. You can check the manufacturer's website for service options.
