When your camera dropped, an electronic circuit probably shorted out. Because of the short circuit, current is being drained from your battery all the time. You need to send your camera in for repair.
Call 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday and they will help you return your camera for an estimate and repair.
The battery itself could have gone bad. If the cells within the battery are damaged, it can refuse to charge or power the camera, which would explain the blinking red light. You'd need to purchase a replacement lithium ion battery.
Unless you are a watch maker and access to spares you probably wont fix it. So in my view only gentle manipulation is all the averageguy can do before consinging it to the bin As you correctly surmise these things are not usally repairable and can cost a lot for the shop to look to tell you no Can do.
you could try 2 things.. check the configuration if its been changed.. the best thing you could try is do a factory reset... there must be an option to set your camera to default values.. the other thing is cleaning the lens with something really smooth, otherwise you could scratch the lens.. hope that works
