Droped my ****ing camera

I just had to get a few images off my favourite Sony P-71 camera, and as it was copying the files, I dangled it by its wrist strap, one inch (2.5CM) off the soft cork floor.

It slips out of my hand, bounces once, and dies. No more power light, no more response of any sort.

This camera cost only $200 Australian... probably about 75 GBP. Despite that, It is the best damned camera I have ever used, and I have it set up the way I like it.

What do you think I should try?

Fixing it? It seams to be purely a power related problem. Power related problems are usually quite simple, so why not.

Sending it for repair? It will cost an absolute fortune I think. Unless anyone knows better.

Just replacing it? I love it, but I really, really don't want to lose it.
