Note4 stuck on: enter your backup password?

Dear, I have tried so many ways to unlock my device, a Samsung Note4 was okay a minute ago then started to ask for a backup password after trying to put it several times I got a message saying fingerprint not recognized you can unlock your device with the password after 30 seconds and it keeps saying that even after 50 attempts. I rooted the device in recovery mode so I'm trying to find a way to reset the lock screen without losing my data. I have tried: Soft reset, hard reset, removing the battery for more than an hour, tried Android device manager, tried few online patch to flash it from an SD card in recovery mode. I think it was caused by: Hardware or software malfunction

What password do I need after an update in Samsung Galaxy Note4?

My phone downloaded an update and when it reset for it I says: "Enter password to decrypt device storage" I tried every password I ever use/set on my phone and none works, which password do I need to use email, blocked screen, private files or a set one by Samsung?

Samsung Note4 - FingerPrint Scan to Unlock Screen Disappeared & its Asking for Backup Password?

My fingerprint scanner disappeared from the lock screen. I do not remember my backup code, I cannot unlock the screen. Can still answer calls swiping the screen but the darn screen will not unlock to allow me to access ANYTHING, and going through the (Google) Android device manager doesn't help either ("Your screen is already locked so a password is not needed"). I have a lot of photos & videos that I do not want to lose. Can I somehow access the contents via my Google ID. Warm Regards.

I forgot my backup password and desperately am in need of help to unlock my phone so I don't lose my photos. I have tried: Nothing but contemplating on factory resetting it. I think it was caused by: I took my battery out put it back in, turned it on and the finger scanner wouldn't work ,asking for a backup password instead I forgot it since I always used my thumb
