    With nothing showing up on the screen, and a lock, I am not sure you can do anything. I am not even sure if using ADB and push commands would help.

    Get the cable to connect to HDMI and connect it to a TV.
    You can then just connect the phone to a computer and pull the data off via computer.
    My daughter had the same issue and we used the special cable to get to our TV and unlocked the phone.

    It does work.

    Would you still be able to unlock the phone if the screen doesn't work? Also, the S4 doesn't have an HDMI out...

    You need the MHL to HDMI cable for the S4.
    Then connect the HDMI to a TV.
    The screen not working probably has nothing to do with the digitizer for input working.

    You can then remove the screen lock and grab your data via PC.
