Flashing front red light

So basicly, my gopro hero5 black was plugged into my laptop updating, when I moved it and the gopro fell, getting unplugged. Since then, the front red light has been flashing, and it won't respond to anything. And before you ask, yes, I did do a manual update, but it still didn't work. I don't really mind resetting it or anything, I just want it to be functional.
