Pentax K-m issues

Hi there,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes:

I own an elderly pentax k-m. Unfortunately a little while ago the tripod it was on was knocked over and since then I have noticed increase noise on low light/high iso photography and I seem to be only able to select either manual or Av modes only on the camera.

So has anyone else ever encountered a similar problem and in this world of digital technology, is it repairable or is it on the way out?

Thanks for your advice,

A connector may have gotten loosened or broken. Same with circuit boards. Probably repairable but probably more economical to replace the camera.
