F - - blinking on the top lcd K20d

I dropped my camera and now none of my lenses will work. I pulled the lens off and actuated the shutter but once you put any lens on, it starts blinking F - -. Please tell me that this is fixable without shipping it off.

Are you using manual lenses or automatic lenses?

if they're automatic lenses and the aperture ring is set to the A position, then your camera is broken. I'm willing to bet it's the wiring to the lens contacts.

That was what I was afraid of. Is there anywhere in the southeast region I that could send it off to be repaired?
