    Hi! My phone sustained minor water damage but still worked for a while. However, it started going black while I was using it, screen would just turn off on it's own. It could come back on, but now it's almost always black. Sometimes the screen will flicker on, but not long enough for me to select Connect as Disc Drive so I can download my photos. My question is...how do I get my photos off the phone when I can't access the screen? Can I somehow back up everything that is on my phone or force my phone to mount as a disc drive?
    THANKS!

    Was there a screen security on the device? Like a PIN or something?

    I have a pattern lock, which sometimes it will allow me to do, then the screen goes black. It seems when I have the phone plugged it to charge, it flickers on more often & I can almost reach the screen I need to to mount as a disc drive, but never can quite get there.

    The lock is what is stopping you. Replacing the screen might be an option.
