How to Restore Deleted Photos/Videos from Android in Black Screen

-- Monday, December 21, 2015
"Hi, I just wonder if anyone can help me on this. I just updated my Android phone, more specifically Samsung Galaxy S5 to Android 6.0, but there is a black screen bug that starts occurring after taking pictures/videos with Camera. At first this blank screen problem can be fixed once I rebooted my device. However, it doesn’t work anymore now! My phone is stuck in black screen and probably I have to factory reset the Samsung phone. But the photos and videos is all I have and I need to restore them from the device. Tell me how to do please!"
