Bezel is unseated/unglued, crack near the lock button, iTunes or computer not recognizing it.

No ideas, at all?

Perhaps disassembling and reassembling the entire device will help either to reconnect anything that got shook out of place or at least diagnose what might be broken and needs replacing.

already took it apart. #1 tab was flopping around.
Now I hit the Power button and it shows a black screen for about 5 seconds.

try the other cables, 1-4 and connect to itunes in dfu mode if it'll let you do it.
