Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Posting for a friend who had their tripod tip and camera take a hit. Camera still functions, but she wants to put it back together. The two screws above the view finder are stopping her from simply "snapping" it back down. Anyone have any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

 
Send it to Nikon, get it done right. Yes, it will probably cost a couple of hundred dollars, but at least you know it will come back reassembled correctly, and tested to full working spec. Trying to fiddle this yourself is just as (or more) likely to result in additional damage as it is in the case going back together.
 
^^^^^ Yep. That is going to more than a simple "snap" it back together.
 
I dont think the screws you are referencing are the problem, looks like you've probably ripped through a few other mount holes:

 
This show how bad cameras are made these day, i dropped an old Canon 10D about 3 times still works perfect

That camera will definitely need a new top plate. I agree with the others, send it to Nikon and get it fixed right.
 
Nikons are known to be sturdy cameras. They are built for rough work. To damage one must
have taken some doing. Like Tirediron said, send it to the manufacturer if you want it reassembled
the right way. Cameras are very sensitive equipment. One mistake on your part and you could damage it
permanently. Plus, you risk the chance of screwing up any warranty that exist. Invest in what it takes
to get it done right.
 
Thats a bummer :( Just send it back to Nikon and get it repaired. Its cheaper than buying a new camera. I had something similar happened to me a few years ago, my tripod failed and my D7000 went crashing to the ground..luckily it made a good landing and nothing was broken. I'm much more careful now. Good luck!
