Have a Galaxy S4 with a black screen and Kies won't recognize it, the screen is black but the menu and back buttons light up as well as the LED light to show its charging.

I lost my Samsung S4 or 5 2 months ago?

The insurance company gave me a secondhand replacement in Dec., but yesterday the screen went half black and half colored. I have tried: Resetting it by the Vol power and start menu. I think it was caused by: It's not been dropped or anything but I did have it on top of my laptop

I have two Samsung Note5 with broken/smashed screens and wish to remove the pictures, music and other files off the device as I have many irreplaceable photos of my children on both devices?

How do I get into phone's internal memory to remove the files I wish to keep before putting the phone in the rubbish. Is there an app out there or something I can download that will allow access to the phone that will show me the path I'm taking once into the phone, any help would be highly appreciated. I have tried: Downloaded Android control.exe. I think it was caused by: I dropped both phones out of pocket as I was getting out of the car onto the road

Windows 10 64 bit and Samsung Galaxy S4 Broken screen APK installer does not recognize?

I am having difficulty with the APK Installer. It can not recognize my Samsung S4 Galaxy. I am new to windows 10 and I find it to be annoying. I can make it to step 7 but no further. Could it be a USB 2.0 vs 3.0? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The screen is Broken on the device I am trying to unlock. I am unsure where the problem is and how to diagnose it. It does recognize the windows OS but nothing on the USB. Should I look in the device manager? is it a driver issue? or am I completely locked out? I tried to download both versions. Automatic and manual. The result is still the same. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I tried to follow the troubleshooting instructions but the screen shots are not what I see on this windows 10 64bit computer. The screenshots and hyperlinks are not what I see on my Windows 10 64 bit computer. I have tried: Everything in your troubleshooting manual that I could follow. I think it was caused by: The screen on the phone is broken. it has a pattern lock

Broken screen Galaxy S6, cannot transfer files without permission?

I've broken my Galaxy S6 phone screen. I'm trying to retrieve my data and pics but cannot connect to my PC as my phone usually asks for permission to transfer files when I plug in. How do I get around this as I cannot accept the connection and transfer without a screen to press OK on? I've downloaded ADB but it still won't connect until permission is given I believe. I cannot see anyone else who has mentioned the issue with accepting the transfer before it connects on your pages.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge screen blackout and password protected?

Hi, my S6 recently turned black on me out of nowhere, it sometimes turns green if I keep pushing buttons. You can tell the phone is on because it vibrates here and there and notification lights go off. I can't get a replacement screen because I'm in Europe, they refuse to fix my phone which is from Australia. Apparently, the parts are different. I need to access files on my phone but it's password protected so I can't access anything. Is there any way to bypass the password or maybe even a program that I could maybe type in my phone's password so I can get in like that? Well, I haven't been able to find anyone that has the same model phone. And the fact that my screen blacked out suddenly, it wasn't dropped or anything it just happened randomly. Also the fact that I can't get anyone to fix my phone so I must find an alternative online.
