, thank you . I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Dropping a camera usually result in damage, if not immediately, then later on owing to weakening of circuits or other fine parts with the shock.

If the screen is blank, you have a problem that is severe. The best you can try is:

removing the batteries, and leaving the camera on a (dry, non-humid, non-dusty) shelf . Then put the batteries back in and try the camera again.

After that, it is a choice between having the camera repaired, or replacing it. What options you have there depends upon what brand of camera you have. Let me know and I will advise you further. Thanks.
