Have you tried opening it up? It's pretty likely that a part inside has been disconnected or broken. Check out iFixit's teardown for a good idea of what the inside should look like.

If everything else looks good, another possibility is that the battery has been screwed up and needs replaced.

I had a simar problem except I didn't drop mine. My new 3ds will not turn on at all, just play button sounds and system audio for a short time. Good luck man, new 3ds is extremely flawed, it's only a matter of time before everyone finds out.
