I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I thought you guys might be able to help me out: my Panasonic lumix GF7 recently fell from an 1 meter high window sill. Now, when I turn it on, it's showing these horizontal colored stripes on the screen (screen itself is fine, menu and everything is working, nothing wrong with the lens either). It looks like something is wrong with the sensor, however I'm not entirely sure.
I opened up the camera to take a look, but I don't dare to remove the ribbons, so I can't really see what's up with the sensor. Maybe you guys have a clue? I hope it's just a loose ribbon or something (that can be easily re-attached by someone with a more steady hand and better tools), otherwise it's probably not worth fixing (I bought it second hand for half the original price, and figured that fixing a sensor might be really expensive).
Attached is a picture of how the screen looks like! When I do manual zoom, the stripes distort! ISO and all these functions are not working tho.
