    Default Friend's dropped 3G, Need Help, please.
    My friend dropped his 3G and it won't turn on. I reseated the #1 connector and a black and blank screen turns on for a few seconds and switches back off.

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

    I need your input, guys, and I really want to fix it. I owe this guy.

    Thanks!

    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.
