I was attempting to take a picture and the camera, while on and ready, clattered to the tile floor when my hand slipped. Whenever I turned it on, it Access on a black screen and does nothing for a while before shutting itself off. On occasion, a symbol that looks like a battery with a slash through it appears and flashes before shutting off. When connected to the PC, it works fine.
This isn't my camera, I'm borrowing it. I don't have the manual or warranty with me. Please help.

Even though it was cushioned somewhat the camera took enough damage to jam something. The flashing symbols are a generic error code it could mean the shutter, zoom, film transport, flash, or some combination of these system are not working (sorry but without tearing the camera apart I can't narrow the problem any further)
It doesn't say lens error? but it won't focus? it is probably the same as the other people who do have lens error displayed on the screen, the lens is broken is what the repair company told me about my s200 when i told me lens error
It is likely that your lens assembly was knocked out of alignment when you dropped the camera. When things do not line up inside the lens the whole unit cannot move in and out. This malfunction requires disassembly to fix, so you will have to get it to a professional for repair.
There are providers online who can repair your camera, and also check with your manufacturer to see if they can service the camera at a reasonable rate.
