Have you checked the cable that leads into the gimble ? Also have you tried to re-calibrate the camera in the settings ? Can you control the camera at all using the right toggle wheel on the remote ?

Antenna cable break will not make camera to fail. You may not get video stream is another point.
If other antenna is broken, you will not be able to send commands to aircraft and camera.

If you are talking about one of the 2.4 cables coming from your gimbal CHAD like Alog said will not affect the movement of your camera .
The others ..5.8.. are located in your shell . Maybe a picture of what you have would help us help you .

So you have no power to the camera. The antenna has nothing to do with power to the camera. It's either one of the ribbon cables is unhooked or broken or a problem with the board. If you crashed, it also could be any of these.

Also is it possible for a pic of the bird and also maybe a few screen shots of the error messages. That will help a lot so we can hopefully solve it for you on here
