There's nothing unusual about the dialogue.
Your post is not clear to me, but I shall assume you wonder why "How can I fix it?" wasn't answered with "You can't." It could have been answered in that fashion. "You don't" is just another way to reply to the question with a slightly different meaning. "You don't" doesn't say that it's not possible to fix it (as in "You can't"). "You don't" means that for reasons not given but possibly inferred "You will not try to fix it" or "That simply isn't done due to tradition, customs, reasons that should be obvious to you, reasons I choose not to discuss with you, etc."
