Dropped my K-r

I dropped my k-r today and just after that it did not turn on anymore. Does anybody have any idea what could have happened and if I can fix it myself? I am really sad.

Thank you

sorry to hear of your predicament, is the battery still in position?
Try taking it out and re-seating it.
If that doesnt fix it then - TBH - I've no idea whatsoever ;-(

It could be anything, from a simple broken connection to a busted circuit board. Check the batteries and if that doesn't work you could try taking the bottom off and looking for breaks. Beyond that, you'd need to send it to a professional to look over, but it may be cheaper to replace than to repair.
