Hi dodgetruck2,


I'm sorry to know about what happened. There are some possible way, if the screen is still working but it's just a black screen, you can try using moto mod projector and see if it will project the screen of your phone (from there you will see your screen and know your navigation). You can also try connecting your phone to a PC and reset the phone using LMSA tool. 


Here are the links:

How to use LMSA link (see My Device page)


Please note that we can't guarantee that they will successfully work. But I hope that helps. Let me know. Thanks.


Best regards,
Motorola-Lenovo Support
