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

Data recovery for Samsung S3 with a broken screen?

My screen is broken and the screen is black. It has a lock screen on it and I've tried touching where I think the correct numbers are but it is not unlocking so I suspect that the touch is not working. The back and tab buttons light up on the bottom and it makes noise when it restarts. I just want to get the photos and hopefully contacts off of it. Debugging is not enabled and it is not linked to a Google account.

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.
