Samsung S6 data recovery not working with blank, black locked screen.

I have a Samsung galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) from a friend. The display is broken (black screen). And additionally the cell phone is locked. :-(
So I can not make a data recovery/data transfer to another device since all is locked. I have tried Wondershare AND FoneLab software. There is a need to make a special order of pushing the home/power/volume-up-buttons. It onced worked, but not more anymore. Any other ideas how I can get the old data ?
(the cell phone is not rooted, USB-debugging is NOT turned on, I also tried OLG-USB keyboard to connect with no luck)

Hi Uwe,

Is the glass broken or is the LCD broken? If its just the glass you can fix that really inexpensively (https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Replacement-CrazyFire-Adhesive-Tweezers/dp/B00WDYQOKG/). If its the LCD (and the glass) that costs much more and really depends how much the data is worth to you (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2/137-1403349-1498560?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=samsung+galaxy+s6+lcd+replacement&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Asamsung+galaxy+s6+lcd+replacement).

There are many ideas here as well: https://www.fonepaw.com/usb/enable-usb-debugging-screen-broken-android.html

If you got it from a friend surely he/she knows their password. Use a USB cable and plug it into a computer and transfer all the files you need.

Let me now if you have any questions!

Hey ! Thanks. No, the LCD+ glass is broken. The friend doesn't want it to Substitute and doesn't want to invest any money. I know the Password, but it doesn't help me, since with Fonepaw I don't get a Connection again as I said + I don't see what I type in. USB-cable (OTG) doesn't help. Just tried it. Any other ideas ?

T. Zucker-Scharff mentioned: "Connect to a linux machine." And then ? What do you mean by this ? What exactly can you achieve with it doing so ? Mounting the device ? But how ? Did you do it already ? Can you please describe it a bit more detailed ?!
