1. Android Central Question's Avatar
    Pretty much what the titles says. When I connect the P8 to my PC it's only loading the battery and I can't access my files. In the past when the screen worked I had to switch option from "only loading" to something like "task/file manager + loading" within the phone. But since the screen is now broken I can't do that. I've got lots of work on my phone that I really need... Is there any way to solve this?

    Much appreciated!

    Welcome to Android Central! You might be stuck, because in order to access the storage from your computer, you have to unlock the screen first. This method used to work for older phones, but I don't think it works for newer ones: http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...ed-screen.html.

    Was any of your work saved or backed up to Google Drive or some other cloud storage (or a physical hard drive)? If not, and if the work is crucial, you might have to spring for a screen repair -- just make sure they don't do a factory reset of the phone in the process.
