My Galaxy Note4 refuses to recognize my 4-digit password or pin code to unlock the screen. I do not want to factory reset until I have backed up my data, especially family videos and voice recordings?

I believe that I have the WiFi, Bluetooth, and data usage OFF. Can I undo or eliminate the password since it won't accept it anyway.
