Guys have an s4, digitizer works but screen is black. TWRP is installed, need to factory reset and I have found screenshots of the main TWRP screen but need screenshots of the rest so I can try and fumble through a reset blindly.

Anyone have any links or such, or an alternative method?

Not sure if you want to try this but...I just read a post on xda that no matter what, if Knox is tripped, Samsung will still honor their warranties.

My wife was more worried about the naked selfies she sent me a few weeks ago on her last business trip than warranty issues. Apparently her SD card was acting up and pics went to internal memory. I've copied them off and deleted but she'd feel better after a reset.

If pc still recognizes the phone you can run Adb shell and do a factory reset with adb.
Try Google Adb shell.
