Camera KO after crash

Today s**t happened... My Anafi fell from about 30m, luckily on tall grass. A couple propellers were bent, but the rest looks ok (I'm going to change them all, they're 2yo).
The drone turns on (also did a short takeoff test), but it doesn't pass the camera test. The app says that "something is blocking the camera" after attempting 3 times to calibrate after startup.
Image looks ok, just the rotation has something wrong. It looks to me that the camera is trying to rotate to awkward angles and it its the gimbal's back.
Close examination doesn't show any evident damage.... Has anyone had the same problem and managed to solve it?

Check whether the camera is hitting the gimbal frame or Anafi body during the calibration. There is not much clearance during calibration and if the gimbal has become dislodged from it's mountings or the arm is slightly bent then it will fail calibration.
