    so that the phone will charge and make the samsung noise but the screen is black and unresponsive. is there anyway to transfer all the data on the motherboard to my note 3? I was hoping there is a cable that connects to the motherboard and is a usb on the other end?
    would like to do this without without manually opening the note 3

    You can't get to the motherboard to connect a cable to it (if there were such a thing, which there pretty much isn't) without opening the phone.

    You have a few choices:

    Connect the phone to your computer. You can copy all the files you can see.

    If USB debugging is enabled, you can use adb to pull any file from the phone's storage to your computer.

    You can find a friendly computer repair shop that has a pretty well destroyed Note 3 (maybe water damage to the motherboard) and they'll plug the screen into your phone in place of your screen long enough for you to do a backup. Or a shop that will replace the screen without doing a factory reset first. (Most shops do that first so that, among other things, there's no chance they can steal your data, like passwords, etc.)

    If the phone is in such bad shape that it doesn't pay to repair it (even scratched and dented they're still worth decent money), the motherboard probably doesn't have any data on it to recover.

    Choice 3 sounds good.
