The solution with the OTG cable does not work for a Z5. I can access the phone since its on and I use fingerprint to open it. But then it seem that I need to do some changes in USB setup in the phone in order to use the OTG, and that is not possible because of broken screen. Anyone has a tip how to move forward or is this a lost opportunity?
Another try is to back up the phone via PC Companion. But it requirers you to select a choice on the phone (accept to copy files), and this is not possible due to crashed screen or usage of the USB (between phone and pc) and not OTG.

Hi everybody, I have the exact same problem, yesterday I broke my Z3, the screen is black and the touch doesn't work.
So far I've tried every tip on this forum and hasn't reach anywhere, I still can't access the internal memory and I really need to retrieve all the pictures and videos I have in it.
I even tried downloading the Android ADB Interface and my computer doesn't accept the download.
My phone doesn't have a pin, is not locked, just the swipe, but since I can't swipe it, I can't tap the option required by the sony companion.
Anyone with another tip? I really need your help

Your phone will shutdown if you push the "volume up" and "power" buttons at same time down for few seconds. Then plug in the mouse and it will work (so it did for me, Xperia Z3+).
