Title:

What's likely broken; should I have a go at fixing it?

Text:

Hi from France (near Geneva Switzerland).

Just dropped my D600. ALL functions and display (that might have a hairline crack) on TOP of the casing no longer work. However, with the battery in, the camera is permanently 'on', and I can take photos using an external cable (GPS socket) or throught the time lapse screen. Camera works only in fully auto

mode / can't change anything. Auto-focus works fine 'as is'. Photos take, record and display normally. The display through the viewfinder works.

Questions:

What is probably broken?

What are the chances of getting most of the top functions working(even if not the display)? I'm pretty handy with electronics, but not with cameras.

Are there parts that might help fix this, that someone could

sell to me / send to me?

Present 2nd hand value of a working D600 camera is probably now less than the cost of Nikon repairs, so having a go myself seems to be the only option.
