Samsung Note5 screen blank, phone locked by pin, can't retrieve data?

Hello, I have a Samsung Note5. The screen went blank, but the phone still responds to phone calls and WeChat or Viber messages/calls. I want to save the data (mainly the photos and videos) first before sending the phone for repair. Could you please let me know How can I download my data safely? I tried to connect my phone with a computer via a USB. But, since the phone screen is black and I have not previously used the USB connection to transfer my data, can I still use your Android Control Program to access my data? Can you instruct me as to how to do this? Many thanks.

How much it'll cost to fix the screen?

Last night I broke someone's Samsung A5. We were on a concrete paving near a swimming pool and it fell from my hand in the process of taking "selfies". It already had a crack but I created a new crack at the bottom left-hand side. The phone proceeded to slowly go blank until it was completely blank. When she showed me later the screen was completely black with a slight red stripe. I want to know how damaged it is and what the price of fixing will roughly be

Transferring data from my Samsung S6 (broken screen) to my MAC / PC?

I have a Samsung S6 whose screen has died. The phone works, but the screen is busted. I need to save all the contents inside, but USB debugging is NOT enabled. I'm desperate as I've surfed the net for hours, no luck for answers, just programs that require payment and reek of scam. I have Kies, the official Samsung program, but it says I need to enable USB debugging. What can I do? I'm willing to visit a shaman rather than paying 220 euros for a repair... Peace. Well, basically it does not talk about this. Maybe it is because it is impossible... I have tried: Dr Phone software, Kies, various type of force and meditation and praying. I think it was caused by: The screen is broken because of my stupidity and USB debugging is not enabled because I did not know this existed..

See more questions like this: I have an Xiaomi 4w device. Its screen is broken and touch is not responsive. Can you help?

I have installed said program and I get nowhere once it is installed. I just need to retrieve pictures from the phone so I can swap this phone for a new one at AT&T.

My S7 active works "fine" except for the screen that is unresponsive to touch and I can not unlock it. I went to Vegas this week and would like to just get all my pictures off, AT&T is going to swap the phone but they are not intelligent enough to help me retrieve my data. I can't access anything from the computer because the screen is locked and I thought this program would work but I can't get to the point of controlling it with my mouse.

Phone Locked and I need information- Galaxy 7- husband passed away and I cannot gain access to his phone?

Hello- my husband passed away a month ago and I cannot get into his phone because of the swipe password. I do not know it and I would like to gain access to have his pictures. I tried AT&T to see if they could unlock it- however all the information would be lost. I have an S7 if that helps. I hope someone can assist with this. I have looked on many websites but those require his email account and password in which I do not have. I do not want to lose any of his information. Can I transfer his photos to my phone? Computer? Anything? I just need the phone unlocked. I never thought this would be so difficult to do. . Please help! I need to get into my deceased husband's phone. Please! The phone swipe code has locked me out. I do not know the code nor any of his email passwords. I have tried: I tried the phone company, every swipe pattern I can think of. Internet sites also. I think it was caused by: My husband passed away. There is no way I can retrieve the password/swipe code.
